Urban commuters more often than not find it rather silly to own a car simply because it doesn’t;’t fit their lifestyle. Reasons for that might include the cost of owning a car, the extra expense that gas brings along with it, and the toll they take on the environment. ElectraMeccanica, a Canadian-based electric vehicle manufacturer, aims to address all of those concerns and then some with its new SOLO electric vehicle (EV).
On display for the first time ever at CES 2018 and Showstoppers, the SOLO is a $15,500 vehicle that rests on three wheels, and is a vehicle that can rival the smart car in the super compact vehicle market.
“We are producing the electric vehicle for practical commuters and the environmentally conscious,” Jerry Kroll, CEO of Electra Meccanica, said in a statement ahead of CES. “We are at the threshold of unleashing a new generation of innovative, advanced technology EVs; CES is the perfect place to showcase the SOLO.”
