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.

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.”
