VANCOUVER — ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp., a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles, announced on Feb. 2 the specifications of its SOLO Cargo EV as well as the timeline for the commencement of deliveries, expected to begin in the second quarter of 2022. The SOLO Cargo EV was reportedly developed based on direct input from prospective customers, having been modified with an expanded cargo box to accommodate a wide variety of applications for fleet and commercial customers with functionally and utility in mind.

The SOLO Cargo EV has a range of 100 miles and a top speed of 80 mph. It also features front and rear crumple zones, side impact protection, a Kevlar reinforced safety hoop, torque-limiting control as well as power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and a configurable entertainment system.

SOLO Cargo EV dimensions have been expanded to include cargo space for a total of 11.8 cubic feet of storage space – as compared to 5 cubic feet of storage in the standard SOLO EV.

“The SOLO Cargo EV is purpose-built for light commercial fleets seeking a cost effective and sustainable approach to delivery with space for a single driver and enough cargo room to support an efficient delivery operation,” said Kevin Pavlov, CEO of ElectraMeccanica. “Early prototype SOLO Cargo vehicles have been deployed in several exciting applications throughout California and Arizona, receiving positive feedback from customers. Through these efforts, we have garnered significant indications of interest from our fleet industry outreach. We are excited to begin offering this new version and expanding our addressable market into the highly promising commercial and fleet space.”
