While states are free to make their own rules in the US, the lawyers at the Department of Energy don’t want to part with the government’s $25 billion loan program for advanced vehicles because of their three-wheeledness. Lame if you ask me, oh and also if you ask Republican representative Brian Bilbray. Not often I can say that!
Mr. Bilbray has introduced the “Innovative Vehicle Act” to Congress to get formal recognition for three-wheelers, and fuel-efficient two-wheelers. The bill is a bit taylored for the Aptera, which is slated to start production at the end of this year, I am sure designers like Alex Hodge don’t mind.
