“February 15, 2017 â€“ Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corp., (EMV), a Canadian-based designer and manufacturer of the SOLO, an all-electric single passenger vehicle developed to revolutionize the way people commute, opened its first retail Intro Store today in downtown Vancouver. Located in Bentall Centre, the Intro Store welcomes interested customers to learn more about the SOLO, talk with EMV representatives and place their reservations.”
See ELECTRA MECCANICA OPENS FIRST SOLO INTRO STORE IN DOWNTOWN VANCOUVERPutting a demonstrator out in public in a high traffic area is another sign that sales to the public are about to happen. Commercial production is expected next month as ten test-vehicles go through their paces. I’ve already planned my turn by turn route to drive my unit back from Calgary in 2018. My biggest issues so far are not with the design of the vehicle but the design of some highways near cities in Saskatchewan. Yes, even though Peavey Mart and its charging station are right beside the highway you have to drive a mile upstream to get back onto the highway… They even fool Google into thinking one can do U-turns to get to where you want to go. Nope. There are fences between the streams of traffic. There are multiple routes possible on Google but only one is reasonable… Anyway, there are enough charging stations along the way that I should never run out of juice.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
