About Electra Meccanica: Over 80% of people commute by themselves in large, fossil fuel cars. Everyone complains about traffic congestion and global warming, yet they continue to do the same thing and expect the situation to change by itself. This is the essence of Electra Meccanica, and why we believe that all those one person commuters will switch to the small footprint and zero emissions of the EMV Solo. We all have so much to gain by doing so, and it’s really a fantastic car when you get behind the wheel. With the current public demand for electric cars, and smaller cars that can easily navigate our crowded urban streets, the EMV Solo is probably one of the most anticipated new cars today.
