VANCOUVER, May 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Electra Meccanica (OTCQB: ECCTF), a cutting-edge designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles, today announced the first U.S. nationally certified SOLO has been shipped to its new owner and its new home in Los Angeles, California.


Ex-IndyCar driver Dominic Dobson - who is also the Washington and Oregon State representative for the SOLO - was on hand to greet the car on its way to California.

"This achievement is indicative of our commitment to excellent quality and safety," said Jerry Kroll, CEO of Electra Meccanica.
