VANCOUVER — Electra Meccanica, which is building the Solo single-seat three-wheel commuter EV, says it wants to build a racy two-seat electric roadster.
The Vancouver-based company showed a computer rendering of the Tofino at the recent Vancouver International Auto Show. The car’s Porsche-like lines recall affiliate company Intermeccanica’s Roadster, itself based on the classic 356 Porsche Speedster.
The Tofino – named for a popular resort village on Vancouver Island – will have a battery-electric powertrain capable of hitting 100 km/h in under seven seconds, a top speed of 200 km/h and 400-km range.
The asking price for the Tofino will be $50,000, compared with about $20,000 for the Solo, with deliveries to begin in 2019, the company said.
