All day
Aptera prototype in Rotunda
1:30 p.m.
Presentation by Aptera CEO Paul Wilbur

Perhaps you've seen the Aptera in our Fast Forward exhibit, but don't miss this chance to see an even newer prototype from Aptera Motors.

On Tuesday, August 10, you can see the latest all-electric Aptera prototype vehicle in the Rotunda. The Aptera 2e recently reached the finalist stage of the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE, a competition to inspire the next generation of high-mileage vehicles. Aptera representatives will be on hand to answer your questions about how the vehicle is being designed to merge futuristic fuel efficiency with everyday living and driving.

At 1:30 p.m., Aptera Motors CEO Paul Wilbur will make a presentation on the future of fuel-efficient cars, and how advanced technologies can provide efficiency without comprising comfort or practicality.

To complement these events, MSI is also offering fun activities on the science, design and engineering of green cars throughout the day.

This event is included with general admission to the Museum.
