One seat Solo EV gives you weird looks on the cheapThe Solo by Electra Meccanica should come to the States some time in 2017, with a $15,000 price tag.
[MUSIC] Are you commuter that's looking to make a difference in both your drive and the environment? Well, you should check out on Electro Mechanical's newest venture, the Solo. Say two-wheeled car party in the front, and a single motorcycle party in the back. [MUSIC] Now obviously, I'm in a pre-production vehicle, because check it out! Look mom, no doors. [LAUGH] But once the production vehicle comes online it's gonna have a 16 kilowatt hour battery. And that's enough to give the electric motor 82 horsepower and 140 pound feet of instant torque. Now zero to 62 is gonna come in about eight seconds. And it's got a top speed of 81 miles an hour but that is electronically limited. So you might be able to mess around with that just a little bit. But here's a cool thing, this car only weighs only 992 pounds. And that is thanks to an aerospace composit chassis. Which makes it much lighter than any other three wheeled vehicle out there on the road. [MUSIC] As far as range, you've got about 100 miles and it can charge in three hours with a 220 outlet or six hours with a 110 outlet. [MUSIC] Now I like how [UNKNOWN] expect this to be the only car you own and they priced it as such. It's gonna go for about $15,000 US and that is before any kind of federal tax credit of $7,500. And then you can check with your state to see if there's any other rebates or credits that you might be getting. In California you'll get that sweet, sweet carpool lane sticker. This company expects this car to be available in the United States in 2017. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
