ElectraMeccanica now at home in North America

Canadian EV designer and manufacturer Electra Meccanica held a commissioning ceremony for its nearly-completed manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona in the USA. The company says its new plant represents a major step and will serve as the company’s new headquarters.

ElectraMeccanica says it will ultimately have the capacity to produce up to 20,000 vehicles per year in its 235,000-square-foot facility in Mesa. The area will also be the home to the company’s first US-based engineering technical centre.

“Arizona is a driving force of innovation, and today’s ribbon cutting for ElectraMeccanica is further proof of that,” said Governor Ducey. “We are proud of these one-of-a-kind vehicles that will be made in Mesa, bolstering Arizona’s robust manufacturing industry. Thank you to the entire ElectraMeccanica team, Sandra Watson and her team at the Arizona Commerce Authority, Mayor Giles and the City of Mesa, and local leaders for your support on this important project.”

The company is currently licensed to sell its flagship three-wheeled, one-seater, electric vehicle, the Solo and Solo Cargo, in California and Arizona. The Canadian company began manufacturing the Solo in China in 2020 and made deliveries of the small urban electric vehicle last year. The Canadian company says that its new manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona, represents its commitment to officially establish the company as an American OEM by the end of this year.

“We are thrilled to bring production of our vehicles onshore and introduce an enhanced, U.S.-built 2023 model year SOLO EV to market,” remarked Susan Docherty, CEO of ElectraMeccanica. “It takes a village to do what we are doing. Bringing our manufacturing facility and vision for our company to life only works if there is a true partnership between local and state government leaders who are committed to economic development, along with solid business partners who share a vision to create products that consumers crave.”
