You don’t have to give up performance when you give up gas. Zero to 60 in 8 seconds. Top speed of 80 MPH. Your Solo accelerates your commute while reducing your environmental footprint. Sustainability has never looked—or felt—better.
Three hours to a full charge. All the best parking spots. Your Solo is powered by a 17.3 kWh lithium ion battery and compatible with universal charging stations everywhere. Plus you get keyless entry, a Bluetooth stereo, reversing camera, 285 liters of storage space, heaters, air-con, a single heated seat, heated mirrors, windshield wipers and all sorts of things you wouldn’t normally see on a trike.
M. Paul, Rivera, CEO of Canada’s ElectraMeccanica sits down with Auto Futures to discuss the brand’s three-wheeled, zero-emission ‘Solo’ EV that’s aimed squarely at the commuter market.
He also highlights the influence of Elon Musk and Tesla, the importance of creating a holistic solution to personal mobility and revolutionising the commuter space. Solo’s 17.3-kW-hr lithium-ion battery pack has a 100-mile range and a three-hour, 220-volt J1772 recharging time.
