Canadian auto manufacturer Electra Meccanica was awarded the Automotive Innovation Award for its SOLO electric vehicle by IHS Markit at the CES Show 2018. The CES Show was held Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas.
At the ShowStoppers event during the CES Show, 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, according to the company.
"It is an honor 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."
A publically held company, Electra Meccanica began trading on the OTCQB exchange in September of this year, and announced its application filing for NASDAQ Capital Markets listing last October.
