    Yep, just another writer waking up to the context that this vehicle type fits into.

    Same chicken and egg problem as always. Enough people need to buy in (literally) to put the effort on the map, so that enough people buy in to make it commercially viable. ie low enough to attract attention of a large population.
    This is only one article, not enough to trigger anything, so.... yawn...

    On the other hand, if Bill Gates read it and 'got it'.... Anyone know Bill Gates... personally?

    There is one point that might be new and interesting, about bus use....

    I had an early SOLO reservation up until I decided I’d have old geezer ingress/egress and driver comfort issues because it is SOLOW. The key point, there is a retail production vehicle ready to test public acceptance in the USA market demographics. Better chances as a 2 seater in the USA. With a Chinese motorcycle manufacturing partner, Electrameccanica might be able to sell enough SOLOs in the China or and worldwide markets to achieve long term success. Exciting times for those with SOLO reservations. Yawn = talk and SOLO is well beyond the talk stages as they get closer to an official retail production date.

    The price of the SOLO keeps going up. The last number I saw was $18,500. That's way to expensive for this type of vehicle.
