ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corporation (NASDAQ:SOLO) on Wednesday said it has been invited to showcase its flagship, single-seat SOLO electric vehicle at the prestigious Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. 

The museum is holding its upcoming “Alternating Currents: The Fall and Rise of Electric Vehicles” exhibition, which will open to the public on November 20 and run through October 2020. 

The exhibit recognizes innovation in the electric vehicle automotive industry stretching back to its infancy in the mid-19th century.

“It’s a distinct honor to receive this invitation from one of the world’s preeminent automotive institutions,” said CEO Paul Rivera in a statement.

“The history of the EV goes back to the dawn of the auto industry itself, but it wasn’t until recent advancements in battery technology that it’s become possible to create a safe, reliable, enjoyable and affordable EV. The SOLO single-seat EV will stand proudly alongside other EV innovators.”

The 11-month exhibit will explore the history and development of electric cars for use on the road, trail and track. The exhibition will celebrate why the market for them is now so strong that manufacturers who do not offer an EV are more the exception than the rule.

With the limits of internal combustion engineering becoming ever more apparent, the Vancouver-based company said new interest in EVs is changing the face of the global automotive industry.

The SOLO EV is a single-seat electric vehicle and features a 100-mile range, cruises comfortably at highway speeds and can charge on a regular household (110 V) current, as well as public charge stations, in under 10 hours. The SOLO is an efficient, economical and fun alternative to the daily commute, last-mile delivery or micro-shared mobility.

The vehicle was included in a recent Forbes list of the “coolest new cars” for 2020, amongst names like Aston Martin, Cadillac and Tesla.
