Canadian electric vehicle designer and manufacturer ElectraMeccanica named Tennessee as one of two finalists for the location of its SOLO EV United States assembly facility Tuesday.
The proposed plant includes an engineering technical center with facilities for electronic vehicle testing and an assembly facility for the brand’s single-occupant, three-wheeled SOLO electric vehicles, which are under production and have yet to launch commercially.
The Nashville region and the Phoenix metro area are the final contenders for the site. The company is working alongside consulting firm BDO USA to review both sites and proposals. ElectraMeccanica narrowed the search to Nashville and Phoenix from seven initial candidates, and will announce its final decision by the end of November, according
