In blog post published this weekend, Electra Meccanica CEO Jerry Kroll said that the company expects to start production of its all-electric three-wheeler, the SOLO, in June and to start deliveries in the following months.

The automaker has some ambitious specs for the SOLO:

  • Top speed: 87 mph (140 km/h)
  • Acceleration: 0-100 km/h in 8 seconds
  • Range: 100 miles (160 km) on a single charge
  • Charging time: 3 hours at 220v, 6 hours at 110v
  • Price: USD$15,000 (~CAD$20,000)

The range might be a bit optimistic considering the company plans to equip the vehicle with only a 8.64 kWh battery pack, but the SOLO has the potential to have very low drag and Electra Meccanica is aiming for it to weight only 450 kg (~1,000 lb).

In his post, Kroll added that about 50% of the company’s first year of production  is already sold out and that if someone was to place a reservation right now, the person shouldn’t expect to take delivery before November.
