ElectraMeccanica Celebrates Commissioning of New Mesa HQ and Manufacturing Facility

ElectraMeccanica Opens New Mesa HQ & Mfg. Facility 

ElectraMeccanica is the fifth electric vehicle manufacturing facility to open in Arizona since 2016, and Arizona ranks seventh nationally for electric vehicle adoption.

ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp., a designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles revolutionizing the urban driving experience, together with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Mesa Mayor John Giles, the City of Mesa, the Arizona Commerce Authority, local officials and community leaders held a commissioning ceremony this week for ElectraMeccanica’s nearly completed manufacturing facility in Mesa, Arizona. The new plant represents a major step for ElectraMeccanica as a business, delivering on its commitment to officially establish the company as an American OEM by the end of 2022 and will serve as the company’s new headquarters.

ElectraMeccanica will ultimately have the capacity to produce up to 20,000 vehicles per year in its 235,000-square-foot facility located near the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport at 8127 E. Ray Road, Mesa, Arizona. The campus also will be the home to the company’s first U.S.-based engineering technical center, including 22,000-square-feet of office space and 19,000-square-feet of lab space. The company has already activated certain functions, and with this commissioning, it has completed several of the necessary steps to begin ramping up full production. In the medium term, the company says it expects to create 200-500 jobs in manufacturing, engineering, technology, and more. Currently, the company is licensed to sell its flagship three-wheeled, one-seater, all-electric vehicle, the SOLO and SOLO Cargo, in California and Arizona.

ElectraMeccanica is the fifth electric vehicle manufacturing facility to open in Arizona since 2016, and Arizona ranks seventh nationally for electric vehicle adoption, with four electric vehicles registered in the state for every 1,000 Arizona residents. In addition to building their own vehicles, ElectraMeccanica’s new facility will be able to host other companies within the facility as a contract manufacturing partner.
