ElectraMeccanica Updates Voluntary Recall of SOLO G3 and G2, Announces Buyback Remedy

April 14, 2023

MESA, AZ – (BUSINESSWIRE) April 14, 2023 – Today, ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. (NASDAQ: SOLO) (“ElectraMeccanica” or the “Company”), a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles revolutionizing the urban driving experience, provided an update on its previously announced safety recall for the SOLO (G3/G2), model years 2019, 2021-2023. Approximately 429 vehicles are involved in this recall.

While driving, the vehicle may experience a loss of propulsion. An instrument cluster warning light illuminates, and the driver will experience a loss of power as the vehicle decelerates as if removing their foot from the accelerator pedal. Steering, braking, and lighting systems are not impacted. The vehicle can be restarted after a short period of time. In the event of sudden loss of propulsion, the vehicle maintains all other critical functionality including power steering, braking, and lighting, and in most instances allows the driver to pull over. However, due to the unexpected loss of propulsion, there may be an increased risk of crash.

The recall remedy available is vehicle repurchase (buyback), for the full price paid including taxes, fees and shipping. ElectraMeccanica will work directly with customers to complete the vehicle repurchase process, free of charge. Reservation holders will be issued a refund.
