ElectraMeccanica Vehicles Corp., a Vancouver, British Columbia-based electric vehicle maker, is debuting its Solo vehicle and making it available for test drives.

Test drives are now available for customers who have preordered vehicles or put down deposits, and will soon be offered to prospective customers at ElectraMeccanica retail locations.

ElectraMeccanica CEO Paul Rivera said the company has made a decision on where it will build its U.S. manufacturing plant, but he declined to reveal the location during an interview on Friday.
