I think the Solo's looks and aerodynamics are better thought out than earlier competitors.

They have higher aspirations too.

Electra Meccanica Tofino promises electric twist on the classic roadster

There's never any guarantee these small startups will be able to deliver on their promises, but Electra Meccanica has successfully brought the Solo to market – albeit a year behind schedule. At the moment there's no reason to assume the Tofino won't be the same, although building an expensive sports car is a different game to building three-wheeled commuters.

Electra Meccanica Solo, Canadian 3-Wheeled Car, Could Be Game-Changer

Quote:
The Solo is classified as a car in Canada and as an autocycle in 41 U.S. states, company spokesperson Jeff Holland told the media. That makes the car exempt, in the U.S., from airbag requirements.
Autocycle?
