ElectraMeccanica’s SOLO Cargo EV to Debut at Chicago’s National Restaurant Association Show, May 21-24, 2022
Super-Efficient and Nimble EV Priced Under $25K (MSRP) and Designed for Urban/Suburban Food-Fleet Delivery Available for Test Drives and On Display in Booth 8516
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ: SOLO) (“ElectraMeccanica” or the "Company"), a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles uniquely designed for city and suburban delivery as well as commuter needs, announced today the Company will showcase its SOLO Cargo EV for the first time at the National Restaurant Association Show taking place at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL from May 21-24.
The SOLO Cargo EV is one of the only delivery-ready, commercially-viable electric vehicles designed around the premise that most restaurant and food-delivery activities do not need - and are often disadvantaged by – the use of full-size cars, vans, or trucks. The SOLO Cargo vehicle also offers safety, weather and temperature-protection advantages over two-wheeled options such as scooters, motorcycles and bikes. The all-electric, three-wheeled solution – which is available for order now for business customers – offers restaurant owners, chains and franchises a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional third-party delivery options. The SOLO Cargo EV also provides customers with an option for branded wrapping that promotes their businesses, all while ensuring the quality of their product stays within their control. The SOLO Cargo EV boasts a lower total cost of ownership compared to traditional ICE vehicles, and is supported by delivery of completed, ready-to-go fleets along with wrapping, upfitting and telematics.
“Delivery has never been a bigger part of the to-go food business, which is exactly why every restaurant needs a smaller, electric, enclosed-delivery-vehicle option,” said Kevin Pavlov, CEO of ElectraMeccanica. “SOLO Cargo is really the only name in that game that’s ready to meet the needs of businesses and their customers right now. We can’t wait to introduce our SOLO Cargo to the biggest restaurant chains in the nation, who can get outsized operating and marketing value from shrinking carbon footprints and lower transport costs.”
The SOLO Cargo EV is now available for order by phone or email – all at an accessible MSRP of $24,500. First deliveries are planned for June 2022.
