Tiny trike hits US as Electra Meccanica delivers Solo
Canadian startup Electra Meccanica has made its Solo, a three-wheeled tiny electric car. The first few LEVs have been delivered in the States and will be the first of many as Electra Meccanica convinced investors to produce no less than 75,000 units.
While the Solo is made in China, where Zongshen Industrial Group has agreed to build 75,000 units in the period from 2018 to 2020 reportedly, the entire production run is to be sold in North America. Electra Meccanica had been working on certification in the U.S. and Canada for a year.
The company’s light weight electric trike is called Solo as it is a one-seater with a 160 kilometre range. An 82 horsepower electric motor powered by a 17.3-kwh lithium-ion battery pack reaches a top speed of 109 kph. The Solo costs 15,500 US dollars ($19,999 CAN/ 13,000 EUR).
For early 2019, Electra Meccanica alsoannounced its electric roadster Tofino.
