Manufactured in Canada by Electra Meccanica, the Solo is half the car you've been waiting for.
Dude, where's the back of my car?
The one-seat EV Solo by Electra Meccanica looks...small.
The electric motor puts out 82 horsepower and 140 pound/feet of torque. It's all powered by a 16 kWh battery.
You'll get 100 miles of range from the Solo. Charging times are 3 hours with a 220 outlet or 6 hours if you have to use a 110 outlet.
The Solo can accelerate from a dead stop to 62 miles per hour in 8 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 81 miles per hour.
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.
Yep. Still looks small.
The Solo should be available in the United States in 2017. It starts at $15,171, before any tax credits or incentives.
