ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp.

ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ: SOLO), a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles, today announced the accelerated expansion of the Company’s retail footprint for its flagship SOLO EV with new locations planned for Arizona and Oregon.

In recent weeks, individual states and counties have begun the process of re-opening storefronts and businesses at varying rates and times. In recognition of this evolving situation, ElectraMeccanica has responded with an updated retail awareness strategy focused on dynamically entering select, new markets where interest and consumer demand is greatest.

“As we emerge from the pandemic, the public is looking for transportation alternatives that allow for personal independence in a safe, secure and self-contained driving environment—a solution that our flagship SOLO EV fully embodies,” said Paul Rivera, Chief Executive Officer of ElectraMeccanica. “To continue to build awareness and meet consumer demand, we are pleased to announce that we are accelerating our expansion into key markets – Arizona and Oregon – by bringing our SOLO EV to Macerich’s upscale Scottsdale Fashion Square and next, Portland. Our updated plan to open new direct-to-consumer retail locations at high-traffic retail centers in EV-friendly cities provides a unique opportunity for potential customers to learn more about ElectraMeccanica and the SOLO.”

The Company also currently maintains a SOLO EV storefront at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles with a second location under contract at Westfield Fashion Square, a premier shopping center in Sherman Oaks, CA.

Rivera continued, “We remain committed to California with the significant market opportunity it presents. As the state begins to reopen, we will pursue our planned rollout throughout the Southern and Northern regions in accordance with proper health and safety regulations. Going forward, production for existing orders remains on target, and we expect to begin deliveries of the SOLO to U.S. customers starting this fall.”
