“Our ongoing retail expansion campaign aligns with our long-term strategic growth initiative to establish direct-to-consumer outlets that showcase the SOLO to eco-conscious consumers,” said CEO Paul Rivera in a statement.
“With the opening of these additional locations, we aim to create a personalized shopping experience, garner increased awareness of the SOLO brand and extend our geographic footprint into areas that are well-suited for a multi-use, urban ecosystem for personal, commercial, utility and fleet applications.”
The company said its retail expansion program is designed to create a personalized, smart and frictionless shopping experience, offering customers the opportunity to explore the ins and outs of the vehicle and place reservations for the SOLO EV, both online and in person.
ElectraMeccanica added that its sales experts are standing by at each location to assist prospective customers and deliver the “Drive SOLO” experience to all interested parties.
The SOLO is a purpose-built, three-wheeled, all-electric solution for the urban environment. Engineered for a single occupant, it offers a unique driving experience for the environmentally-conscious consumer.
The SOLO has a range of 100 miles and a top speed of 80 mph, making it safe for highways. The SOLO features front and rear crumple zones, side-impact protection, roll bar, torque-limiting control, as well as power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, and a Bluetooth entertainment system. It blends a modern look with safety features at an accessible price point of $18,500.
