The "New Model Reveal" counter at the top of the site page is now negative (-56 mins at this point) ...

Maybe it is time to remove it?

Electra Meccanica announces new all-electric roadster: 250 miles range and ~$37,000 starting price

At the Vancouver Auto Show today, Electra Meccanica, the electric division of the formerly Italian (now based in Canada) automaker InterMeccanica, has announced today a new all-electric roadster called Tofino.

The company claims that the vehicle will have a range of up to 400 km (250 miles) on a single charge and a starting price of $50,000 Canadian (~$37,000 USD).

It does look like an attempt to create the “Mazda Miata of electric vehicles”, which is not necessarily a bad approach.

Electra Meccanica is best known for the SOLO, a ~$15,500 all-electric 3-wheeler with 100 miles range, but InterMeccanica is best known for its trademark roadsters and the Tofino is presented as an evolution of that heritage.

The company describes the vehicle in a press release:

“The Tofino is equipped with a high-performance, all-electric motor with a top speed of 200 kph (125 mph) and a 0-100 kph (0-60 mph) in under 7 Seconds. The chassis and body are made of a lightweight aerospace-grade composite and the car is capable of up to 400 km (250 Miles) of range on a full charge. The roadster will be available in five stunning colors including Titanium Silver, Electric Red, Raven Black, Arctic White, and Bionic Bronze with a suggested retail price starting at $50,000* (~$37,000 USD). Estimated deliveries will begin by 2019 and interested individuals can make a $1,000* reservation for the Tofino at the show or on the website.”

They only shared a rendering of the vehicle.

Electra Meccanica also unveiled a performance version of the SOLO called SOLO R at the show.

Mark West, President of Electra Meccanica, said about the announcements:

“We are very proud to showcase our company, along with a couple of extremely exciting new vehicles at our hometown show. The passion behind these cars is a massive step-forward for our brand and they represent the best of what we can achieve from a performance standpoint. Vancouver Auto Show attendees and others around the world will not be disappointed.”

While we will have to wait at least two years to see the Tofino make it to market, the company claims that the first deliveries of the SOLO will start in May – or about a year late. The single-seater is not for everyone, but it is configured in a way that it could take advantage of EV incentives in certain regions and be priced reasonably.

For example, if it ends up getting the full credit in Ontario, it could cost only $6,000, but it’s unconfirmed at the moment.

Yeah, I'm not getting anything either ram. 6:21PST now.
I messaged them at the FB page and emailed.
With everyone at the car show...
I don't expect a response. Sad

All I can say is stuff happens.

I was on a business video conference call with my team today...
And the mic on my webcam was the only one not working.
Tried everything. As soon as the conference was over...
I tried it on my FCC program, and it worked fine.

I find it rather amusing that they are announcing TWO new vehicles before they have shipped a single one of the (much delayed and much changed) SOLO. EMV seems to be learning from Elio motors ...

I am liking the Tofino and at 37K minues 9500 tax credits, brings the cost to 27500, which is less than most Harleys and BMW motorcycles..
I am sure it will have air bags, abs and regeneration.
$1000 refundable deposit may be worth a chance, especially if the Solo does not meet my expectations..

The more I look at this rendering of the Tofino, the more I think it looks like a Qvale Mangusta... Eerily similar
