First production Solo three-wheeler EV rolls off the assembly line

• By Loz Blain

The first of the fully-enclosed Solo cars has rolled off the line at a new production facility that's gearing up to build 75,000 of these quirky getabouts in the next three years.

The Solo has a set of specs that make it pretty attractive as an urban vehicle. With a curb weight of just 1,488 lb (675 kg) it rocks a little 82-hp (61-kW) electric motor that drives the rear wheel with enough power for a 82-mph (1320km/h) top speed.
