“We are thrilled to be able to deliver our very first SOLO to a family right here in the Vancouver area,â€ said Mark West, President of Electra Meccanica. â€œWe think it fits perfectly with their local healthy food business as an attention-getting, environmentally-friendly vehicle with enough storage for all of their daily needs.”
See Electra MeccanicaIt was a long time coming but the first buyer received their Solo last week and here’s the video of the sweet day. It’s not every day you get to watch the first of a great product delivered so this is historic. No matter what the evolution of EMV will be, this is a milestone many start-ups don’t reach no matter how good their concept is. Solo is a great concept, a reliable minimal car for commuting and errands using mature technology all held together by a bit of motivation and innovation. My delivery will not be so historic but I will make my own video on the day. I’ve already picked out the videographer…

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.
