ElectraMeccanica, the electric division of InterMeccanica, is known for the Sparrow, a single-seater three-wheel EV. The Sparrow was as ugly as it gets, but it was also an interesting prototype and precursor to the company’s next generation single-seater: the SOLO.
ElectraMeccanica has ambitious specs for the SOLO:
- Top speed: 87 mph (140 km/h)
- Range: 80 miles (130 km) on a single charge
- Charging time: 3 hours at 220v, 6 hours at 110v
- Price: USD$15,000 (~CAD$20,000)
If they can achieve this price point without incentives, it could prove to be an interesting offer for a sub $10,000 (with incentives) city commuter.
