Manufactured in Canada by Electra Meccanica, the Solo is half the car you've been waiting for.

The one-seat EV Solo by Electra Meccanica looks...small.

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 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.
