Electra Meccanica SOLO is the result of the creation of a longtime car builder named Henry Reisner and Jerry Kroll. The idea to make this car is inspired by the Corbin Sparrow which was made in 1999.

As quoted from Autoblog on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, the rear mounted electric motor that move the car is capable of generating power up to 82 horsepower and torque of 140 lb.ft, so it can make the car run with a top speed of 75 mph (120 km/h), and in a single battery full charged can cover a distance of 125 miles (201 km). The SOLO is expected to take a full charge on its 8.64 kW/h Lithium Ion battery in about 3 hours (on a 220V connection).

And while the car can only seat one person, the company's owners argue that about 90 percent of light-duty vehicle travel is done alone, so it's a smart purchase.
SOLO has a length of 120 inches (3.04 m), or about a foot longer than the Smart Fortwo, a German-made mini car. Its wheelbase is 80.5 inches (2,04 m)and height of 50.5 inches (1.28 m). The SOLO three-wheeler will sold at around US. $15,300 which is likely to be launched next July and is available in four color choices. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ELECTRA MECCANICA | AUTOBLOG]
