Solo Electric Car by Electra Meccanica

Electra Meccanica Solo electric car
The Solo is a three wheeled, single seat electric car with a top speed of 137 mph (limited to 82 mph). The vehicle is built in British Columbia, Canada, where Electra Meccanica is based.

0-60 mph takes 8 seconds, which is phenomenal considering it weighs 1,380 lbs. The chassis is a lightweight aerospace composite, but the lithium-ion batteries that line the sides of the car probably make a large contribution to the weight. Some forethought in design allows these batteries to be replaceable as technology continues to improve.

Charging time is about 6 hours on 110 volts via standard J1772 charging systems. With a 100 mile range, the Solo is more than adequate for in-city movement.

While this electric car itself is quite small, it still offers 285 liters of trunk space in the front and rear. To top it all off, there is a 2 year unlimited mileage warranty as well as a 5 year battery warranty.

The cost? US$15,500.
