Aptera has released teaser images of their interior design (via Facebook and Twitter) ahead of their planned full interior design reveal this coming week. The images show a surprising amount of the vehicle’s interior, and if definitive, these photos show that Aptera’s interior is just as weird as the rest of the car.

Images posted to Facebook and Twitter show four different people in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, each quite surprised and pleased with the car they are in. And while the angle limits the amount of interior shown, many interior elements are still clearly visible.
Taking center stage in the images is the ever-dividing yoke/flywheel. It is unknown if this is the final and/or standard equipment found in the vehicle. The images also show two relatively large landscape screens, one in front of the driver and the second in the center between the two front passengers. The last thing that caught the attention of many commenters on the post was the clean “IKEA-like” design of the Aptera. The entire interior featured modern fabric and a fabric-focused black, white, gray and beige color scheme.
However, what Aptera did to achieve the clean interior look was to ditch a lot of physical controls and elements that you usually interact with. Aptera has taken this minimalism to quite extreme measures; no interior door handles were seen, nor were any sun visors, air conditioning vents, or electronic or manual controls for the seats. The only immediately visible physical controls are the pair of Tesla-esque knobs/buttons on either side of the yoke and the yoke’s height control lever.
Post commenters were also quick to point out the sitting position. The Aptera appears to have a reasonably low seating position with the legs stretched out and the seat generally stretched back.
It will be fascinating to see what the inside of the vehicle looks like via full view, and I have no doubt it will contain plenty of quirks maintaining the weirdness of Aptera.
