VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ:SOLO) ("ElectraMeccanica" or the "Company"), a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles, today released the first photos and video footage of a behind-the-scenes look at current SOLO EV production vehicles on the assembly line. Completed vehicles are expected to hit U.S. market this fall.
Last month ElectraMeccanica announced the commencement of production of the SOLO EV through its manufacturing partner and strategic investor, Zongshen Industrial Group ("Zongshen"). The Company has targeted late November/early December for initial deliveries to those on its pre-order list before ramping production to meet increasing demand. The first deliveries will be to early adopters/reservation holders in the Western U.S. where the Company has an existing and expanding retail footprint.
"We're excited to share these first images from our assembly line as we continue to ramp production to meet the increasing demand for our vehicles," said ElectraMeccanica CEO Paul Rivera. "Going forward, as always, we are making every effort to ensure that customer care for our future drivers will be fully supported and that the ‘Drive SOLO' experience is second to none."
ElectraMeccanica currently maintains SOLO EV retail locations in the Los Angeles, CA area as well as in Scottsdale, AZ and in a residential suburb near Portland, OR. In the coming months the Company has yet-to-be-announced plans for additional retail locations throughout other West Coast locations.
