ElectraMeccanica-Solo-electric-carElectraMeccanica, 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.

The Vancouver-based company plans on launching the SOLO next year.SOLO
