Canadian auto manufacturer Electra Meccanica will preview its all-electric, one-seater SOLO at CES 2018 later this month.
The SOLO’s unique design is powered by a 16.1 kWh lithium-ion battery and the drive system is tuned for both speed and mobility. With a range of 160 km (100 miles), and a top speed of 130 kph (80 mph), the SOLO delivers superior performance and spirited driving.
Retailing at $15,500 USD, the 100-mile range SOLO’s lithium-ion battery system requires only three hours of charging time on a 220-volt charging station or outlet. As a publicly held company, Electra Meccanica began trading on the OTCQB exchange in September of 2017, and announced its application filing for NASDAQ Capital Markets listing last October.
In the same month, Electra Meccanica also announced the signing of a manufacturing agreement with Zongshen Industrial Group Co. for the production of 75,000 SOLOs total between 2018 and 2020.
British Columbia-based Intermeccanica, a subsidiary of Electra Meccanica, handles current SOLO development and production.
Electra Meccanica is currently offering dealer opportunities and is accepting fully-refundable $250 deposits for the SOLO, and $1,000 deposits on the Tofino, at EMVauto.com.
