Solo EV delivered to first US customer

•, Ben Coxworth

Made by Vancouver-based company Electra Meccanica and legally considered a motorcycle, the single-passenger Solo has an 82-hp (61-kW) electric motor driving its rear wheel, taking it to a top speed of 82 mph (130 km/h) – it goes from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in less than eight seconds. Its 17.3-kWh lithium-ion battery charges in three hours at a 220 V charging station or about six with 110 V, giving the car a range of up to 100 miles (161 km).

It's priced at CAD$19,888, or about US$15,500.

This Wednesday, Electra Meccanica announced that the first US-certified Solo had been shipped to its Los Angeles-based buyer. Ex-IndyCar driver Dominic Dobson, who is the Solo sales rep for Washington and Oregon, was on hand to "greet" the vehicle as it passed through his area.
