ElectraMeccanica Partners With Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee

ElectraMeccanica Teams Up With AZ Super Bowl Host Committee

Vehicles were presented to the committee at a kick-off media event.

ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. has announced its partnership with the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee (SBHC) during an official vehicle hand-off event at the Phoenix Convention Center.

As just one part of its partnership, ElectraMeccanica presented the SBHC with ten custom-wrapped, all-electric, SOLOs for the Committee to use as courtesy vehicles during the Super Bowl during January and February.

The vehicles will help SBHC employees and volunteers to easily navigate crowded city streets and limited parking options. The vehicles will also save on fuel costs and minimize environmental impact, all of which helps the SBHC to ensure its goal of leading the greenest Super Bowl ever.

ElectraMeccanica will also support the SBHC by participating in various events throughout Arizona during the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, including an interactive display at the Super Bowl Experience presented by Lowe’s at Hance Park, 100 Yards of Education: A STEM Playbook for Youth education event at State Farm Stadium with an anticipated attendance of more than one thousand students, and other events the week leading up to Super Bowl LVII.

“We have made a significant commitment to Arizona by recently moving our corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility to Mesa,” said Susan Docherty, CEO of ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp. “It is important for us to support our home state, and by so doing, to help the SBHC deliver the greenest Super Bowl ever. We want to set an example for other such events throughout America, and hopefully, around the world. Moreover, we believe it’s important for business leaders and elected officials, as well as the general public, to understand that the average person drives alone 80% of the time, in a vehicle that seats more than 4 people, which leads to a lot of unoccupied seats, and a lot of wasted energy. That’s something we are committed to help change through the design and sales of our vehicles and through the support of organizations like the SBHC.”
