ElectraMeccanica, a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles, announced an official start date of August 26th for the commencement of production for its flagship SOLO EV.
The SOLO is a purpose-built, all-electric, three-wheeled vehicle for the modern urban environment. Engineered for a single occupant, it offers an option for the environmentally conscious consumer.
The SOLO has a range of over 160 km and a top speed of 130 kmph. The vehicle features front and rear crumple zones, triple-side impact protection, roll bar, torque-limiting control and many comfort features.
ElectraMeccanica will be working in close partnership with its contract manufacturing partner and strategic investor, Zongshen Industrial Group in Chongqing, China on the initial production vehicles.
The company has targeted late November/early December for initial deliveries to select members on its pre-order list before ramping production to meet growing demand.
Additional deliveries will be made to key markets along the West Coast as the Company continues to expand.
“August 26 will be a momentous occasion for our business, and I could not be prouder of all the efforts from our collective team to make our SOLO dream a reality,” said ElectraMeccanica CEO Paul Rivera. “We will be working continuously with our manufacturing partners throughout the next several months to ship fully-assembled vehicles and put them into the hands of our early adopters. Going forward, we are making every effort to ensure that the driver experience and customer care are fully supported. We are thoughtfully considering every detail to ensure that the ‘Drive SOLO’ experience is truly exceptional.”
