Safe Harbor Statements

*  The customer may at any time, for any reason, cancel their order and have their deposit returned.  Electra Meccanica does not consider any order as being secured until the vehicle has been delivered and full receipt of the remaining balance of the vehicle purchase price has been received.

**  The order value figures assume that the Company will have the manufacturing capability of producing the required number of SOLOs and Tofinos to satisfy such order numbers which, if Electra Meccanica is not able to guarantee, such future manufacturing capability and actual results may differ materially from those anticipated.  It is also presently expected that any large scale production of either the SOLO or the Tofino will be the result of a long-term joint venture or similar relationship which the Company continues to work on formally establishing.

Early production of SOLOs from our New Westminster, B.C. factory continues to spool up, and we’ve had the pleasure of delivering another two customer cars since my June update: Cars #0010 and #0011. The first SOLOs will be delivered in the general Vancouver area, and Vancouver Island, to keep them within a few hours of our shop in case we need to perform any work on them. I felt like Santa Claus delivering the last one in Victoria, as the bright red SOLO had the neighbourhood buzzing while Mark West went over the manual with the new owner. Seriously, if you are not getting enough attention with your Lamborghini, you can always step up to a SOLO!  We parked it at the big Empress Hotel for a while, and had a constant ten to twenty people around it. And the SOLOs are performing as advertised. Just a beautiful ride. You can book your SOLO test drive experience, currently at our HQ, by just sending us an email to info@electrameccanica.com.

We just had the gentleman known as “The Soup Nazi” from the Seinfeld Show drop in to our HQ for a test drive. If he can make it here, so can you! He’s a very charming man, and was in town to do a fundraiser for people harmed by the recent forest fires. He gets climate destruction, and knows we need to do more! If you don’t understand this, “No SOLO for YOU!!” Better yet, take up Fandango’s offer of a free ticket to An Inconvenient Sequel (use promo code “CLIMATEEDU”). It’s a must-see!

We also had four SOLOs on display at an electric car expo in July, and had almost 300 people do quick test drives over the one day. Lots of great feedback, and people have a lot more patience than I would, standing in line for half an hour for a 5-minute spin around a small test track. Everyone seemed happy though, and we got another whack of SOLO orders out of it. We are close to having our entire 2018 production sold out.

On the Tofino front, our first prototype is now being built up in the Braid shop and should be on the road in a few weeks. We plan to unveil it at the September 9th Vancouver Supercar show, as well as our Braid Street Open House on September 8th. RSVP at events@electrameccanica.com if you’d like to attend. This is a good time to come over and see the SOLOs coming together, as well as the first two prototype Tofinos, for yourself. I always feel more comfortable when people see things for themselves, to eliminate any miscommunication from any of my updates. Come see, feel and smile. It’s all real, and real cool! Please come out and have a coffee with myself and our production and development team. I promise you’ll be impressed. To my knowledge, no other car company does this as openly as Electra Meccanica does!  We are very proud of what we’re doing!

On the financial side of things, our public market filing of our EMV stock continues to cruise along. It’s now shown as ECCTF on the OTCQB venture exchange (US markets) and I’m told that our shareholders certificates are all being digitized and should begin actual trading soon. I’m beyond pleased at the public market support for Tesla stock, and having met the two founders Marc and Martin back in 2007, it is a dream come true for EV supporters. I hope we are as fortunate with EMV, so we can deploy all the SOLOs, Tofinos and other products that we have in our pipeline. It seems that sustainable business, and clean tech energy in particular is getting the lion’s share of investor attention. Our timing could not have been any better!

The next couple of months will include a lot of travel for myself and the EMV team, as we set up business around the world. Connect with our Facebook page and stay up to date with all the adventures. I have an SCCA open wheel competition at Laguna Seca on September 1-3, so come by and say “Hi” if you’re in the Monterey, California area during that time. Admission is free, and you can have a photo sitting in my Formula car!

September 14th is our EMV Annual General Meeting, and this year we will be holding it at the beautiful Science World facility, one block away from our HQ in Vancouver. It will be a live theatre presentation, and will include introductions to our entire team and some special guests! Bring your questions on our business, products and plans, and let’s get excited about Electra Meccanica!  Official notices will go out to all shareholders soon, but please accept this as an invitation to attend as my guest, and RSVP to events@electrameccanica.com. We really are doing special things, and I love sharing it with everyone who is interested!

All the best to everyone for a happy summer, and looking forward to catching up again with the next EMV CEO update!

Sincerely,

Jerry Kroll, CEO

Several major boxes have been checked so far this month.  Our Canadian production facility has completed and delivered our first customer car, with the next 4 (chassis 10-14) all lined up in various stages of completion.  We should deliver the next SOLO the first week of July, and then between 2 and 10 per month from then on.  As our C.O.O. Henry Reisner said, “This sounds like it’s an easy thing to do, just build a SOLO and deliver to customers, but it’s the culmination of years of effort by some of the most talented people in the world, and millions of dollars of resources to get the job done.  The result is spectacular.  You cannot buy a vehicle for this price anywhere in the world, ever, and get this level of happiness.  Not even close!  I’m not even aware of any product you can acquire for that amount of money that could do what SOLO does.”

The final proof, of course, will be in the comments coming from our customers, initially in British Columbia, who will be experiencing the SOLO in the real world using it as they commute, deliver, shop, cruise…whatever.

I’m so proud of our entire team!

Also, ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. has just been granted our trading symbol “ECCTF” and will be listed on the OTCQB venture stock exchange in the United States; you can look it up online at www.otcmarkets.com. As I’m writing this CEO Update, they have not yet populated the filings and financials, and I’m told this will be done over the next 30-60 days.  Put the ticker symbol into your stock watcher, and join me in this exciting adventure.  Congratulations to our public company listing team, and the dozens of early investors who stepped up to make this dream come true.   Further information on our public company activity can be found on the “Investors” section of our website, or by emailing Sam Woolf in our Investor Relations department at IR@electrameccanica.com.

Our current SOLO reservation list now stand at 536 (not including industrial orders) and the Tofino is at 96.  New SOLO reservations can expect their deliveries in 2018 and the Tofinos in 2019.  Our President Mark West has initiated an ongoing SOLO Test Drive program at our Vancouver Headquarters, which you can book by emailing testdrive@electrameccanica.com.  There is a big electric car show here in Vancouver on July 15th, called “Electra Fest” where we’ll have hundreds of people completing test drives.  If you’re available, you can get more information at https://electrameccanica.com/event/electrafest-2017/.

I’d like to see our reservations top the 1,000 mark before the end of this year, and we’ve opened a special offer for those people who have made a reservation on ANY other kind of car, to email us an image of that reservation and we’ll honour it for a place in line for a SOLO, up to $1,000.00 Cdn.  How can you beat that??   Even if you put in a reservation for a DeLorean, and it never showed up, just email me a copy of that reservation and we’ll send you a matching one for a SOLO! reservation@electrameccanica.com.

As the US and Canadian federal compliance work for the SOLO continues along, and I expect to see it completed later this year. Once that happens, we’ll begin US deliveries, as well as opening SOLO stores in the US.  San Francisco and New York are very big targets for us, and we are planning some amazing events in the months to come.  Stay tuned for more information on my future updates.

Our next EMV Broadcast will be at 6pm PST on Monday July 3rd.  You can view via our Facebook page and submit your questions to me — no questions are off limits!  As always we’ll be giving away a beautiful “Mangia la Mia Polvere” t-shirt to the best question that day.

See you on the road!

Electra Meccanica Delivers First Solo Vehicle

New Westminster, Canada, June 22, 2017 –(PR.com)– Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corporation delivered the first 2017 SOLO all-electric vehicle to proud new owners Leona and Matthew Green of New Westminster, British Columbia. The Greens plan to use their innovative and unique new SOLO for both daily commuting and for their successful local restaurant and catering delivery business. They own the popular Greens and Beans Deli Cafe and ordered the SOLO in British Racing Green to match with their name and the business. Watch the video of the delivery at the following link: https://vimeo.com/222425784.

“We love our new SOLO,” states Leona Green, Proprietor of Greens and Beans Cafe. “We park it in front of our business and you should see how much attention it gets.”

“We are thrilled to be able to deliver our very first SOLO to a family right here in the Vancouver area,” said Mark West, President of Electra Meccanica. “We think it fits perfectly with their local healthy food business as an attention-getting, environmentally-friendly vehicle with enough storage for all of their daily needs.”

The SOLO, an innovative all-electric commuter vehicle, made its world debut at Vancouver’s Luxury and Supercar Weekend in 2016 and is being produced at their Braid Factory in New Westminster, British Columbia. The SOLO’s unique design is powered by a 16.1 kWhs lithium ion battery and the drive system is tuned for both speed and mobility. With a range of 160kms (100 miles), and a top speed of 130kms/h (80 mph), the SOLO delivers superior performance and spirited driving.

Electra Meccanica CEO Update – May

Finally, after years and years of planning, designing, building, organizing, and all the other things that go into an automotive launch, we will begin our first Vancouver area deliveries of our Electra Meccanica (EMV) SOLO!

We believe it is best to have the first group of cars close to our operations center so we can keep tabs on the vehicles and assure that our customer experience is everything it should be.  Our social media squad will also be kept busy with sightings and reactions to the various SOLO cars free-ranging in their natural habitat amongst traffic. Our SOLO reservation holders have been wonderfully supportive and patient as Henry Reisner and the team craft a car that will redefine how the world describes the word “automobile”. It’s a big job, and one that has been challenging and rewarding at the same time. We will keep everyone updated on the specific delivery dates, and customers will be contacted approximately 30 days prior to your delivery date.

For those who have yet to experience the SOLO, we are planning on having two “pre-production” SOLO cars available for a test drive experience close to our Vancouver-based production facility. This will be a good chance for our reservation holders who can make it in to have their first taste of actually driving the SOLO. My sales and marketing team will provide an exciting time for everyone (including the media guests) prior to taking the show on the road later this year. We’ll share photos and video on our website and social channels and we’ll also post an event schedule for the test drive road show, so stay tuned!

Our new Braid Street assembly facility open house in April was a big success, with guests joining us from all across North America. We should be able to produce up to ten SOLOs per month from this assembly line, and then replicate and scale up for the proper volumes we need to deliver the 500+ orders that we have on the books. I anticipate many, many more reservations coming from people who will be seeing our early adopters, advocates and owners — our SOLO pilots — enjoying your new rides. Our company’s success will ultimately be determined by our overall production volume within the next 12 months so I assure you we are working on some world-class plans for our current and future facilities!

This year’s Vancouver Auto Show was a big success for us with the media in attendance reporting that EMV “stole the show” with our exciting SOLO and SOLO R. On day 1 of the event, we also introduced our new all-electric convertible coupe called the Tofino. In less than a month after the reveal, we have almost 100 orders for this gorgeous and innovative sports car. The vehicle’s design and engineering team are progressing nicely and I hope to have something new to show you all by this September’s Vancouver Luxury and Supercar show, where we introduced the SOLO last year.

We have been running a path to complete our federal certification for the United States and Canada. The SOLO is scheduled to complete the required certification and compliance testing for US by the end of May. Following an additional 4 to 6 weeks of final compliance approval, we expect the vehicle to be certified for use nationwide. From there, we can begin expansion into U.S. markets with delivery of production-quality SOLOs. We can also begin with the implementation of SOLO intro stores in the US similar to those already established in the Vancouver area.

I hope you and your families are enjoying a pleasant spring, and getting ready to make the most of summer 2017. I’ll provide a further update again next month and don’t forget, we also have our regular live online updates at 6:00 PM PT on the first Monday of each month on our Facebook page. Details of that will continue to be emailed out to everyone as a reminder.

All the best,

Electra Meccanica Reveals Two New Vehicles at 2017 Vancouver Auto Show

Company shows off images of the Tofino all-electric roadster and displays the race-prepped SOLO R performance vehicle

(VANCOUVER, B.C.) – March 28, 2017 – Vancouver’s Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corporation (EMV) revealed two new vehicles at the Vancouver Auto Show today. The first is a vehicle called the “Tofino.” The Tofino is an all-electric, two-seat roadster representing an evolution of the classic Intermeccanica Roadster, an example of which can be seen in the EMV show stand. The other reveal vehicle on display is called the SOLO R which is a high-performance version of the SOLO electric car which debuted in September. Visitors to the show, which is being held at the Vancouver Convention Center from March 28 through April 2, can also see and experience the ground-breaking 2017 SOLO all-electric commuter vehicle.

“We are very proud to showcase our company, along with a couple extremely exciting new vehicles at our hometown show,” states Mark West, President of Electra Meccanica. “The passion behind these cars are a massive step-forward for our brand and they represent the best of what we can achieve from a performance standpoint. Vancouver auto show attendees and others around the world will not be disappointed.”

Designed by a world-class coach-building team from Intermeccanica with an all-electric drivetrain, the Tofino will provide a spirited and powerful driving experience. The vehicle will be hand-crafted with an evolutionary design nod to the popular Intermeccanica Roadster. In short, the Tofino will give you a classic car look with the technology from today. The electric custom coach sports car will be made with advanced components and its long-range electric motor will take you anywhere you want to go in exceptional comfort and style. The Tofino has remarkably good looks with the lightweight retractable hard top up or down — and it will have enough storage space for a weekend getaway or an adventurous cruise along the highways and backroads.

 

The Tofino is equipped with a high-performance, all-electric motor with a top speed of 200 kph (125 mph) and a 0-100 kph (0-60 mph) in under 7 Seconds. The chassis and body are made of a lightweight aerospace-grade composite and the car is capable of up to 400 km (250 Miles) of range on a full charge. The roadster will be available in five stunning colors including Titanium Silver, Electric Red, Raven Black, Arctic White, and Bionic Bronze with a suggested retail price starting at $50,000*. Estimated deliveries will begin by 2019 and interested individuals can make a $1,000* reservation for the Tofino at the show or by logging on to https://electrameccanica.com.

The SOLO R is a race-prepped performance variant of the innovative all-electric SOLO commuter vehicle, which made its world debut at Vancouver’s Luxury and Supercar Weekend in September. The SOLO R has a high-performance battery system mated to performance brakes, oversized wheels and racing slicks. All of the updates come courtesy of Electra Meccanica’s Advanced Performance team making the SOLO R a spec racer to be reckoned with on the road and on the track. More information on the EMV race program can be found at http://EMVRacing.com. Both the SOLO and SOLO R are being exhibited at the Vancouver Auto Show for the first time. Electra Meccanica is currently offering dealer opportunities and accepting fully-refundable $250* deposits for the SOLO which can be made at the show or placed online at https://electrameccanica.com.

*Plus taxes, subject to finalization upon delivery. Prices shown do not include any applicable taxes. All prices are in Canadian dollars. Financing available OAC. All specifications subject to change without notice

Electra Meccanica CEO Update

March is a special month for Electra Meccanica, as it is the time for the famous Vancouver International Auto Show. Years ago, I had just got my drivers license, the day after my birthday on December 26th, 1976, and drove to the Pacific National Exhibition where the early editions of the Vancouver Auto Show were held during the holiday season. It was magical to drive the old 68 Beetle to the show all by myself, pay my three dollars to see the show and walk in like an adult and collect all the printed car brochures. I loved the new Bertone Fiat X-19, I was enchanted by someone who had made a recreation of the dark green Jaguar D Type with the vertical fin and leather strap over the bonnet, but I was mostly transfixed by an amazing orange Lamborghini Countach LP400 with white interior, on a raised eye level platform. I stood there with my mouth open in disbelief. Behind me stood a couple of older people, and one said to the other “Only an idiot would want a car like that”. I didn’t say a thing, but I’m certain that everyone reading this knows what I thought of THAT opinion!

Its that type of automotive magic that I’m reminded of each time we exhibit at the Vancouver Auto Show, and I wonder how many young people will walk down the aisle this year and see our exciting new 2017 Solo for the first time in real life, and become inspired in the same way that I was all those years ago! And we will have an inspiring display!

For the first time ever we will have the 2017 Electra Meccanica Solo on full Autoshow display for people to see, touch, sit in and order! First Solo deliveries are now planned for May, and with over 500 orders already on our books I expect new orders placed will deliver around July 2018 when we have our production lines ramped up. I can’t decide if we should display an Electric Red, Arctic White, Raven Black or Titanium Silver one. Send in your vote for your favourite!

As a special treat to everyone, we will also have our amazing bright green Solo R racing vehicle on display, with acclaimed race driver Scott Hargrove making autograph appearances throughout the show. You will see some amazing video of Scott putting the Solo R through its paces, to demonstrate the performance capabilities of the Solo as well as to develop technologies for the future of the car.

As if THAT was not enough!! I’m excited to say that we will have a VERY exciting announcement about our next EMV car, Code named “TOFINO”. You will have to wait until opening day of the Autoshow to find out what it is, but I’m here to tell you that our development team has created a true dream machine. When you see it, you will understand!

If you’re in the Vancouver area during the show, please come visit the team March 28th to April 2. Our social media team will be excited to see your posts and pictures at our booth. Best photo will win a legendary EMV “Mangia la Mia Polvere” t-shirt, autographed by Henry and myself! A keeper!!

For those of you not able to be in Vancouver during the show, because you live in Europe, Australia, China, Japan or some other far away place, I want you to know that our President Mark West is working hard to open new Solo stores in all areas. The first store opened in Vancouver three weeks ago, the next store in Richmond BC will open in April, with 23 more slated still for this year! Could a Solo store open in your town? Let’s see!!

Next month will bring more details on our pending public company stock listing, which will be an indicator of how well our cars and business plan are being received by investors around the world. I believe that Solo is the car that Tesla WISHES it would have built, as the amazing electric car that everyone can afford, like a Beetle for the 21st Century. We will soon find out if I’m right or wrong!

Until next month, I’ll see you in the HOV lane!

Sincerely,

Jerry Kroll, CEO

Jerry Kroll, founder and CEO of Electra Meccanica explains, “Our stores will lay the groundwork for the distribution of the SOLO and serve as an introduction to the public of this unique, new clean energy vehicle.

Developed by Electra Meccanica, the SOLO is the first all-electric, single-seat vehicle designed to reduce traffic congestion, air pollution and vehicle operating costs.

It can comfortably achieve highway speeds and has a 160 km/100 mile range on a full charge, making it the ideal supplementary vehicle that is also fun to drive. Available in four stunning colors: Titanium Silver, Electric Red, Raven Black and Arctic White, the SOLO retails at CAD$19,888 (approx. USD$15,500) and with various incentives and rebates, it is the most affordable EV in the market.
