The Solo has two wheels up front, but only one wheel in the rear. Technically it is classified as a motorcycle.

Parking should be a snap in the tiny Solo. With a total length of only 120 inches and width of 47.6 inches, it will fit where most cars can't.

There is not a lot to the Solo when it comes to safety. While it has a back up camera and disc brakes on all four corners, the pre-production model has no airbags.
