The Aptera 2 Series (formerly the Aptera Typ-1) was a high-efficiency three-wheeled passenger car designed by Aptera Motors that failed to reach production.

The first model of the 2 Series slated for production was the Aptera 2e (formerly Typ-1e), a battery electric vehicle announced in late 2008. The 2e would accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in 6.3 seconds and have a top speed of 90 miles per hour (140 km/h). A later model would have been Aptera 2h (formerly Typ-1h), a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. According to Aptera, the 2 Series expected price range was £16,000 to £32,000.

An Aptera 2 made a short appearance in the 2009 film Star Trek.

The company opened pre-ordering for residents of California but stopped taking deposits in July 2011. On 12 August 2011, Aptera announced it would return all deposits from customers who had signed up to buy a car.

In 2019, Aptera Motors was re-formed by the original founders, Chris Anthony, and Steve Fambro, and began developing a much revised solar-powered EV, the Aptera (solar electric vehicle), with up to a 1,600 km range.
