“The Solo feels like a complete and finished vehicle.
I would have bought the pre-production version on the spot if I could have.
Solo is incredibly easy to drive. It feels solid. No squeaks or rattles. The steering is precise and the brakes work well. The suspension is firm, but not jarring. The car is quick, but doesn’t feel out-of-control. No odd handling or twitchiness. It’s comfortable and easy to see out of. When you look in the right mirror, you see the right lane and the car behind you. When you look in the left mirror, you see the left lane and that same car. Yes, there’s some whine. Yes, it’s noticeable, but not obtrusive. In fact, it’s all there is to remind you you’re driving an electric car. Well, that and the absence of a roaring engine.”
See I thought I liked the Solo. Then I took a test drive.I’ve only seen one report of a test-drive where a guy reported he didn’t like the Solo EV. He was out to lunch. This thing handles precisely, accelerates well, has great visibility and costs about half what the larger EVs cost. It’s perfect for me and I want mine now!
UPDATE When the reviewer finished his tale, I added the bit after the … above-right. It’s about what I thought, nearly the perfect car for what I want, tootling around free of a lot of maintenance and cost in a very efficient vehicle. Last but not least, Canadian certification is a done deal, and Greens and Beans received their Solo. So, the jinx is broken. Solos are about to flood the land, slowly at first and then a wave of adoption.
