The Electra Meccanica Solo EV is an electric vehicle, but it only seats one. It has 82 horsepower and a fairly decent range of 100 miles, and it can go 0–60mph in eight seconds, but it will take three hours to charge on a Level 2 charger. Transportation reporter Sean O'Kane got to test drive the tiny vehicle.

Ovo dio : 20k are you kidding Me... for what

Abdulkadir Vlogs : Don't let Mr Bean catch you driving this

Techozu2 : More like half a car

OPEN MIND : 20k is much too expencive. If it had 2 seats I would consider it for 10k.

Gustel : no just no for 20K i can almost buy a tesla model 3 wtf

G Smith : 20k? LOL! What about that 7k three wheel gas powered car? EDIT: ELIO! 7k brand new...

Max : It is like a monster has eat out of the back of the car

Altamash Parwaiz : Cars like this take down the name of electric cars

signetring : No thanks

Damien Wilson : 20K... smh... They must be crazy.

Prashant Shenoy : Haven't they heard about rickshaw vehicle from India?

craig2web : If it were half the price, it would have a halfway decent niche market and do ok. But for around $20k, you can get a decent hybrid for now, and before much longer, probably a full EV for around the same price.

Issac Sven : Look like a safe motorcycle

SDG Danny : Whoa, that's a strange looking car. Wouldn't mind if it becomes way more affordable than an old gasoline

el shaddai : Looks Dumb

SkeleCrafter : If it were cheaper it would work well in developing countries like Thailand. It may also work in Europe with narrow roads.

kertone : 20K??? ahah NO

Roshan Sundram : Even the three wheel car in Mr Bean is way more practical than this lmao

Neth Dharmasiriwardena : It better come with a girlfriend for 20k too cuz you know you're not getting one driving that.

Takahashi Daichi : they really wanna drive alone

Rasik Narula : front wheels fine ! rear wheels .. ,where are they?

Hector G. : Solo EV: I was born a tricycle, but I feel like a car.

Landon Thomas : It doesn't have airbags. It doesn't have DC fast-charging. It's costs 20 thousand dollars US and it's a death trap. There are cars on the market for 15 grand loaded with airbags. Gasoline cars, yeah. But still much safer.

Richard Anthony Rios I : Yuck

Francisco Gutiérrez : Toyota i-road looks more fun.

Ovo dio : Looks like a catfish

Erick Rodríguez : What about a motorcycle?

CAPTAIN PAUL : *_YOU CAN GO TO MC DONALD WITH THAT 😂😂😂😂_*

VoltGe : I would spend 5k. Nowhere near 20k. LOL

dat boi : Wtf 20k?!! What is this? this guy is ugly.. only got 3 tire and barely make any top speed

Marshall Grimmett : This guy is wrong it costs 15k Edit: 15k usd and 20k cad

TR BLITZ : $20,000 Looks like it costs $2000

Dev Bali : This needs a 2019 update. They released a new model that costs 15k and the preorders have increased the stock quite a bit.

Rocksta : So costly so ugly. No thanks.

AREM : 20k?? Not even for 2k wtf ?!

Daniel Souza : Please put a guy less ignorant about efficiency and that can actually understand what's he's reviewing. Everyone can agree that the price is high though. 82hp but it's probably around 300kg which makes the weight to power ratio really really good comparable to a sports car. It also has a electric motor so probably the torque is better than most gasoline cars. So it probably accelerates faster than a gasoline car as well. Then this guy seems like he is trying to bash the car in any way he can just because he personally doesn't like the concept. That's bad journalism. A review should highlight pros and cons, what's the market, and if he can't do that, ask the makers, because they probably understand that since they make it.

New Boss Media : Cool Idea but needs to be more affordable. It should compete with premium EV scooters rather than Teslas and such.

3 1 5 7 3 : One passed by yesterday. Does it have trunk space?

angel paredes : Single seater is just a huge drawback, especially at that price point.

Oliver MJ : It's ugly AF

Zeus : 20k? A new sports bike for 7k with money to spend A car for 10k pre owned. Used Mercedes And possibly in the future some used teslas for about 17-19k

CAPTAIN PAUL : *_I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THAT 😄❤❤❤_*

awilda2790 : I would consider buying some stocks in this company...Lol

censport : Nice to see somebody found a use for those undelivered Elios. (What, you didn't see the resemblance?)

Fairunknown : $19,888 CAD. $15,500 USD. Great car for Canada Eh!? ;)

PATRICK MCKOWEN : Elio looks better to me -- they should have did electric.... they should bring out bring out both .... hopefully they bring out something. Hope EMec does well. Cheers

あきら : Another tragedy of electronic version of Reliant Robin😂

humbughumbughumbug : Oh how people forgot the Corbin Sparrow so quickly.

Abdulla Alblooshi : For 20k, you can buy a nice 1000cc motorcycle, and a track bike
