After a few delays leading to production, Electra Meccanica appears to be ready to bring its all-electric three-wheeler, the SOLO, to market. The Vancouver-based company now scheduled the launch for September 9th, 2016 and the company now lists an official MSRP of $19,888 CAD ($15,150 USD) for the 2017 SOLO.
