The new companies, which were going to engage in the production of electric vehicles, was a huge number. Most of them died, and without showing a single product. Tesla remained alive, but not only she. The Canadian company Electra Meccanica began operations in 2015, and recently it began selling its Solo car for $ 15,000.
Why is a three-wheeled car called Solo? He has three wheels, but only one seat – a place for the driver. This makes the car very compact. It’s even smaller than Smart. In this case, you can not help but notice that it looks like the most ordinary car, which sawed off the back half. In addition, it is very low. Its length is 3 meters, and the height is only 1.2 meters.
Electra Meccanica Solo is equipped with an electric motor with a power of 82 horsepower, which is powered by a battery of 17 kilowatt-hours. The car can be charged in three hours. From a regular wall outlet it will be charged for six hours. One charge can travel 160 kilometers.
The car looks great from the front and looks very unusual from behind. It is equipped with disc brakes and two doors, despite the fact that the seat is only one. The instrument panel shows the speed and charge of the battery, and there is also a Kenwood radio. Otherwise, it looks quite simple and empty. This is not Tesla for you. Of course, there are janitors and a stove.
To accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour the car is capable for 8 seconds. The result is not very impressive in numbers, but it will impress if you are behind the wheel of this small and low three-wheeled vehicle. In addition, you are guaranteed to attract the attention of both car enthusiasts and pedestrians.
