SOLO Fleet Which Wich
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ: SOLO) (“ElectraMeccanica” or the "Company"), a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles revolutionizing the urban driving experience, today announced the Company has delivered a total of 20 SOLO EVs to 15 fleet and commercial customers since deliveries began in October 2021. Year-to-date for 2022, the Company has delivered a total of 20 SOLO EVs to reservation and fleet holders as of January 31, 2022.
Kevin Pavlov, CEO of ElectraMeccanica commented, “We continue to focus on deliveries to our fleet and commercial customers, representing a broad spectrum of industries and organizations looking for a right-sized sustainable solution. As of February 6, we have delivered 20 SOLO EV vehicles to commercial fleet customers, with more in the queue. Early reservation customers who are current vehicle operators are reporting on the advantages and benefits of utilizing SOLO EVs in their operations, including Skechers USA, Faction Technology, Cyber Yogurt and Ruby’s Diner.
“Recent deliveries to Which Wich, UC Berkeley, the City of Mesa, Ross Painting, Maria Villareal Real Estate, Medcenta Pharmacy and Vortex Mental Health are validating how the SOLO EV can optimize and right-size fleets for today’s urban environment. With the upcoming roll-out of the SOLO Cargo model featuring an expanded cargo box, we expect commercial interest from an even broader audience and for sales to continue to ramp – particularly in urban delivery applications,” Pavlov concluded.
Michael Fujita, Fleet Supervisor for UC Berkely Facilities Services said, “UC Berkeley Facilities Services is excited to utilize our newest fleet purchase of 3 SOLO vehicles. The ability to use these to go to and from campus will help greatly with our Carbon Neutrality Plan to reduce Cal's carbon footprint. Using the SOLO instead of a full-size pickup truck will not only be more "Green" but also easier to navigate throughout the campus. We look forward to a productive future with ElectraMeccanica!”
On the delivery of their SOLO EV, Nancy Hormann, President & Executive Director of the Downtown Mesa Association, City of Mesa, stated, “Having the very first SOLO in Arizona delivered to Downtown Mesa has been a great experience. Using the car as our Parking Compliance vehicle has been met with great enthusiasm. The compact design of the car is great for helping our compliance officer navigate tight spaces in the garages as well as cutting patrol time in half. The curiosity demonstrated by our Downtown patrons has made the car a great conversation starter. The technology we were able to easily install in the SOLO is the perfect complement to our “Smart City” designation.”
