Forget about range anxiety when you’re behind the wheel of the two-passenger Aptera. This is one lean, environmental machine that boasts only ten structural panels (compared to the industry average of 300). What’s more, the body contains integrated solar panels in the roof, hood, and even in the dashboard that help contribute to the astounding 1,000-mile range on a single charge. Solar charging can provide up to 40 miles of range per day in sunny climates. The slippery “reverse-trike” configuration, composite materials, and light weight aid efficiency, but the Aptera is also no slug. It can rocket to 60 mph in under four seconds, and it also has a rigid monocoque structure for ideal rigidity. To top things off, it has an autopilot system that provides semi-autonomous driving capability. Aptera Motors will start deliveries in late 2020, followed by a six-passenger version a couple of years later.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
