We are pleased to reach out and share our most recent developments in this latest newsletter! In the last several months, our company has continued on its inexorable march to finalizing the design of and starting to build our exciting all-new Solo, our game-changing single user electric car built here in BC’s Lower Mainland.
March, in particular has been a hotbed of activity for us. Several key milestones have been met this month, including the completion of our first aerospace-grade composite chassis. We successfully built out this chassis and featured it at the 2016 Vancouver International Auto Show alongside one our prototypes which was highlighted by CBC news as one of the “jaw-dropping” cars of the show.
At the show, our booth generated amazing interest from consumers and we were able to sign up 170 new car enthusiasts for test drives and take an additional 8 deposits for our 2017 Solo . I am very pleased to say that we already have almost 50% of our first year’s production pre-sold to a very enthusiastic community of consumers eager to get into their Solos and enjoy the experience of driving this innovative vehicle which is really like nothing on the road today.
Moving forward, our plan over the next few months is to build out several completed Solos for testing and tuning. After this phase, we will alert our reservation holders and all of our 500+ strong list of consumers that requested test drives to scheduled opportunities to test drive an all new Solo, finalize their purchases or take new orders from consumers that have not yet purchased one. We are targeting June 2016 to begin building our production cars and begin delivery of those vehicles in the months that follow.
We are taking fully-refundable $250 deposits both online and in person at our showroom. This deposit secures you one of our 120 limited edition Alpha Series Solos. Right now we are booked until November 2016, so if you have your eye on one and want to get one this year, you should act fast and reserve it by putting down a deposit!
