On Wednesday, ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. began commercial delivery of its highly anticipated flagship Solo EV. The single-seat, three-wheeled vehicle promises to be smarter and more cost-effective than its EV competitors, with an MSRP of $18,500 and 110-V standard outlet charging.
ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp., which is headquartered in Vancouver, is now in the process of delivering the Solo EV to early consumer reservation holders and the first fleet customers, which includes Sketchers USA Inc., Faction Technology, Cyber Yogurt and Ruby’s Diner franchisee. The Solo EV has also just been announced as the exclusive vehicle for a celebrity race taking place on July 1st next year, at the inaugural Canadian E-Fest in Vancouver, BC.
The commercial release of the Solo EV marks the beginning of an exciting production period for the Canadian automaker, which is set to complete its new U.S. assembly and engineering technical centre in Mesa, Ariz., in the summer of 2022. With this new facility, ElectraMeccanica hopes to ramp up production to 20,000 vehicles a year.
Speaking to the production and distribution of the SOLO EV, Kevin Pavlov, CEO of ElectraMeccanica, says, “The initial customer deliveries of our flagship SOLO EV marks a transformational milestone not only for ElectraMeccanica, but for the future of the electric vehicle industry. As the first production Solos hit the road, I was reminded that bringing a revolutionary, production-ready EV to market is no small feat, particularly one as unique and differentiated as our three-wheeled, single-seat Solo. As we look ahead, we will continue to ramp production to meet the ever-growing demands for right-sized EVs with a practical everyday use and helping to create sustainable value for our customers and shareholders alike.”
