And I bet 100 miles is epa right?

Unfortunately the driven single rear wheel makes it useless for me on snowy highways where there is always a track of slush or ice down the middle of the lane. The Electramechanica Solo requires a motorcycle license and a helmet in NY. Similar to the CanAm spider or Polaris Slingshot.

I'll tell ya what...if it comes in blue, and if I don't need a special license, and if they have cheap financing like all the other new cars, I'll buy one.

Then again, if it gets classified as a motorcycle, insurance should be cheaper...might be willing to get a license just for that.

I have a picture of the chassis/running gear from a tech museum a few years back...about the size of a full sized cruiser motorcycle. A bit wider, a bit lower.

I'd love one of those. Tandem seats would be both aerodynamic and ad a lot of versatility to it.

The handle bar steering results in a 'cab-forward' design that makes the 2nd seat a freebie. And that folds down for a delivery van option, the Deliverator.

I'll [probably] get a blue one and take off the plastic and replace it with hammered aluminum. Motorcycle fenders, a nose piece for a cyclopean DRL, and a 2ft boat tail. Either planished or painted camo green.
