Electra Meccanica releases teaser video of new all-electric roadster
In a recently released video, Electra Meccanica has teased a new all-electric roadster -- the eRoadster -- which will be based on the Porsche 356.
Electra Meccanica is the electric unit of InterMeccanica, which was previously an Italian automaker but is now based in Canada. The teaser video of the new all-electric roadster released by Electra Meccanica hints at the automaker’s forthcoming venture in the electric-vehicle market, after the unveiling of Tofino in 2017.
Electra Meccanica’s is best known for its SOLO all-electric 3-wheeler, which has been in production for years. The company claims that SOLO will have a range of 100 miles, and has been priced at ~$15,500.
When Electra Meccanica unveiled Tofino last year, some reports had said that the vehicle apparently hints at the automaker’s attempt to produce “Mazda Miata of electric vehicles.” The vehicle will supposedly have a 400 km (250 miles) range; and its top speed would be 200 km/h (125 mph). It would take barely 7 seconds to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph).
With Electra Meccanica having now released the teaser video for its all-electric roadster, it is evident that the company has plans underway for a new electric vehicle. However, the teaser video did not accompany any details about Electra Meccanica’s commercialization plans for the new vehicle.
