ElectraMeccanica breaks ground on new U.S. assembly and engineering plant in Mesa, AZ

ElectraMeccanica, known for its single passenger, three-wheeled electric vehicle SOLO, has chosen Mesa, Arizona, as the location for its U.S. assembly and engineering plant.

The Canadian company, based in Vancouver, B.C., says the new facility will create up to 500 new jobs and potentially produce 20,000 of its flagship SOLO electric vehicle each year. ElectraMeccanica calls the SOLO EV an “all-electric solution for the urban environment,” with a range of 100 miles and a top speed of 80 miles per hour, making it safe for highway use. SOLO retails for $18,500 and is available for pre-order on its website.

ElectraMeccanica picked Mesa, just east of Phoenix, after a more than year-long site search.

InterMeccanica, a subsidiary of ElectraMeccanica, has been building high-end specialty cars for more than 60 years.
