Novo-Solar-Solutions-Electric-Car-Solo1 FV June 24th, 2016

Electric cars are going mainstream and our team at Novo Solar are excited to announce we are adding a Vancouver, BC designed and built electric car to our vehicle fleet!

Novo Solar Solutions has ordered The Solo, “The Smartest Commuter Car on the Planet”. Made by Electra Meccanica, the Solo is an all electric, single passenger, three-wheeled commuter vehicle.

With only 120 being made in the first production, Novo Solar decided that the time was right to purchase an electric vehicle.

Designed for commuting, this Solo electric car has a range of approximately 160km between charges which is perfect for Novo Solar as we travel to client homes to provide quotes for solar panel installations and shading solutions such a retractable awnings and exterior sunshades.
