Electra Meccanica Solo EV Goes On Sale September 9th
August 6th, 2016 by James Ayre
The single-seat, 3-wheel electric vehicle known as the Electra Meccanica Solo EV will go on sale in Canada on September 9th, according to recent reports.
The single-seat electric vehicle (EV) will feature a single-charge range of around 100 miles, and will feature a starting price of CAD $19,888 (around US $15,000).
Interestingly, the Electra Meccanica Solo EV can apparently be fully charged in only around 3 hours from a standard 220-volt outlet (not too bad, eh?), and in just 6 hours from a standard 110-volt outlet. While the range and starting price aren’t particularly great (in my opinion, anyway), the charging time isn’t too shabby.
The Electra Meccanica Solo EV reportedly does 0–62 miles per hour in around 8 seconds.
Autoblog provides more, stating that, “as for financing the boot-shaped vehicles, Vancouver, BC–based Electra Meccanica is saying it can offer the vehicle for bi-weekly payments of $75…. The Solo EV is the brainchild of Henry Reisner and Jerry Kroll. Based on the old Corbin Sparrow, it’s about a foot longer than a Smart Fortwo and the company has more than 20,000 refundable deposits for the Solo.”
