Electra Meccanica has designed and built the Solo as part of its plan to emerge as a major participant in the fast-growing electric vehicles market. Plans for the Solo's U.S. rollout include a new dealership in the Los Angeles market with additional dealerships scheduled in 2019 in California and the Pacific Northwest. Electra Meccanica enjoys a sixty-year lineage as part of Italian race and sports cars maker, Intermeccanica, founded in Turin, Italy in 1959, and management is looking forward to expanding operations into the U.S. market.

"We're very excited that the Solo will be featured as the AltCar Expo's showcase EV introduction this year, following a tradition of EV debuts that have included the Chevy Volt, the Nissan Leaf and many more," stated Jerry Kroll, Chairman and CEO of Electra Meccanica. "The Solo is a beautiful, easy-to-drive vehicle that'll make commuting to work or short trips a fun, enjoyable experience. Electra Meccanica is committed to providing an affordable vehicle that is utilitarian and meets the demands of the California commuter. We're very excited to be featured at this year's Expo and are confident attendees will see something that's a unique departure from traditional automotive engineering."

"AltCar provides the premier venue to bring together the policy makers in California, the industry and the public in order to take the next steps towards a transportation system that does not involve petroleum," commented Terry Tamminen, President and CEO of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. "For the past decade, AltCar has been a key part in the shift occurring with alternative technology vehicles and infrastructure, alternatives to vehicles and alternative energy. Soon, alt cars will not be alternative but rather the norm!"

The Solo was previewed at this year's CES show in Las Vegas where it received the electronic convention's coveted Automotive Innovation Award for 2018. The Solo is priced at $15,888.
