It is a first for Squamish. Matt Blackman is currently driving around town in a SOLO. The electric car from Electra Meccanica is certified for sale in B.C. Blackman does consulting work for the company so was given one to try out. It can go a top speed of 130 kph and runs on a 17.3 kWh Lithium-Ion battery. The one-seat car has a 160 KM range. It has an 82 hp DC Electric motor. Blackman said it cost him less than $2 in electricity to travel from Squamish to Vancouver and back. *Please note, an earlier version of this post said the car was not certified for sale here. It is.
