America finally gets a 1-passenger commute

The Canadian, Electra Mechanica' SOLO is on the market in California.
An enclosed,3-wheel,100-mile range, EV,for a little over $15,000.
It has a Cd 0.24 body,a little better than Ford and VWs offerings as concepts in the 1980s,but SOLO is 'real',unlike Aptera,Edison VLC-2,and others.
California allows SOLO to use the H.O.V. lanes.It has a full roll-cage.
I'll have mine with a full-tadpole trailer,thank you very much!:thumbup:

As dumb as it may seem half my trips (especially longer ones) have a passenger

I had hoped an elio like 2 inline seater would have come out

Ah well too bad so sad but an interesting single passenger.

If I had lots of room to have a heard of cars I might add one for fun

Too bad the tax credit is only $1500

Seats half as many people as my motorcycle and costs 1.5x more. Then there’s the fact that a person could buy a used Spark EV for $9k and a Leaf for even less.

Maybe they’ll sell 100.

You’ve gotta admire its efficiency though

But you always want more, different strokes for different folks

My sister got a 2015 Spark EV with 6000 miles for just over $10K. Heck of a deal compared to anything else comparable.

Wait a few years and you'll be able to buy one of these for $5k used. Apples and oranges comparing anything used to the price of something new.

I don't buy new.

Just the vehicle for TrigglyPuff.

Are they classified as a motorcycle or as a passenger vehicle down there in cali? Fingers crossed they dont classify them as motorcycles up here...whats the point of a commuter car for the masses if the masses need to go get a motorcycle license to drive one?
