The Vancouver based firm won the Automotive Innovation Award at CES.

The Innovation Awards at ShowStoppers took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the event Electra Meccanica presented the SOLO, an all-electric commuter vehicle designed and built in Vancouver, Canada. With a 100-mile range, the single-seater SOLO addresses the needs of the nearly 80 percent of Americans commuting to work alone in their personal vehicle.

“It is an honour to receive the Automotive Innovation Award from IHS Markit for our all-electric SOLO, the de facto electric car for daily commuters and the environmentally conscious,” said Jerry Kroll, CEO of Electra Meccanica. “We are grateful for the recognition and welcome others to join us in our vision for a cleaner planet.”

The SOLO retails at $15,500 USD.

Intermeccanica has successfully been building high-end specialty cars for 58 years. More information can be found at
