The Canadian electric vehicle maker said the app will be available with the launch of the SOLO EV production vehicle and both Apple iOS and Android versions will provide owners with a connected vehicle experience, enabling remote monitoring of the vehicle status.
Features in the app will incorporate the capability to determine whether the vehicle is plugged in and connected, the battery state of charge, and length of time to completion of charge. Other features will include GPS guidance to the nearest charging stations, one-touch contact to ElectraMeccanica service personnel and various convenience reminders.
In a statement, Paul Rivera, chief executive of ElectraMeccanica, said: “Smartphone integration has become a key requirement for modern connected vehicles, and we are excited to offer an innovative, customized solution for proud SOLO owners. The launch version of the app will include the functionalities we believe are most important to our customers, with new updates and features to come in later releases.”
The ElectraMeccanica app will be available for download from the www.electrameccanica.com website, on Google Play Store for Android and Apple App Store for iOS.
ElectraMeccanica’s flagship vehicle is the purpose-built, three-wheel single-seat SOLO EV.
The company said the vehicle will revolutionize the urban driving experience, including commuting, delivery and shared mobility, as well as providing a driving experience that is unique, trendy, fun, affordable and environmentally friendly.
