    Just came across this ad for the Electra Meccanica Solo.
    Apply Your Receipt - Electra Meccanica
    It's a single passenger three wheel car with a range of about 100 miles. Company seems to be in British Columbia. Cost about $20,000.
    Interesting in that they seem to be targeting Model 3 reservation holders with an "Apply your receipt" as a deposit. (Delivery in early 2018.

    More likely targeting Elio reservation holders. No way a single occupant trike with 100 mile range competes with a 5-seater sedan with 200+ mile range.

    Must be a Norwegian joke? I asked my wife, but she didn't get the reference either. But, then again, she's only half Norwegian. :)

    The Buddy was a Norwegian EV.

    Ah, okay, thanks! What about the "scabies" part? Just a general put-down of the car or did it have some specific issue such as blistery paint that resembled that affliction? :)
