    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? :)

    Maker of single-passenger electric car files for $10 million public offering

    Electra Meccanica, a Canadian company gearing up production of a single-seat car that looks like it's missing its back half, is about to go public.

    The company announced Wednesday that it will list a $10 million public offering on the NASDAQ. Shares will be sold starting Thursday under the tickers "SOLO" (for common shares) and "SOLOW" (for warrants). The ticker symbols are a reference to the vehicle it produces -- the "Solo."

    I spotted a Solo plugged in at a local ChargePoint station a couple weeks ago. I've walked by Electra Meccanica's office in Vancouver and seen their car there before, but this is the first one I've seen in the wild:

    We will be reading about fatalities soon, just like on the MB Smart forums.

    Every vehicle brand on earth has fatalities.
