Electra Meccanica received over 64,000 pre-orders for its EVs

Electra Meccanica, a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles based in British Columbia, received 64,154 pre-orders for its two models, the SOLO and the Tofino.

Last week the Canadian company reviewed its year and the different milestones it crossed in 2018. It was in 2016 that the unveiled the SOLO, a single-seater electric vehicle, two years later, production of the model began.

In 2018, Electra Meccanica built and delivered, from its Vancouver plant, the 40 hand-produced units. A factory in China has also started manufacturing the model, which should be able to deliver about 50 SOLO EVs by the end of the first quarter of 2019.

With a target MSRP of $15,500 this car received 23,030 pre-orders, this figure climbs to 41,124 for the second model of the brand, the Tofino.

The Electra Meccanica Tofino is a roadster and is, for the moment, a simple 3D render since no prototype or concrete model has been presented by the manufacturer. Despite this, nothing prevented more than 40,000 $1,000 deposits for the convertible sports car. According to the company, the sporty two-seater should see the light of day in 2019 with a target MSRP of $50,000.

“I am very pleased with our team’s progress to date,” said Electra Meccanica COO, Henry Reisner. “Having driven the 2019 SOLO myself, I’m convinced we have a winning car on our hands. Now we get to the business of final calibration, initiation of production and delivering them in significant numbers in 2019 and beyond.”
