US solar EV maker Aptera forms alliance with CTNS for battery pack production

US start-up Aptera Motors has entered into a strategic alliance with South Korean battery pack producer CTNS, in a move aimed at scaling up production of its transformative solar-powered electric vehicle. Aptera has signed multiple agreements with CTNS, establishing a formal business relationship to build a battery pack programme. The agreements also aim at developing other energy solutions and revenue streams together, which could pave the way for the creation of a joint venture subsidiary dedicated to advancing these initiatives, says a company release.
