VANCOUVER, July 16, 2018 /CNW/ - Electra Meccanica Vehicles Corp., a cutting-edge designer and manufacturer of electric vehicles, today announced a partnership with Harbour Air Seaplanes, North America's largest seaplane operator and first Carbon Neutral airline, to make their all-electric SOLO commuter cars available in a carshare program at the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre.
"In addition to being proudly pro-environment, Electra Meccanica is—and always has been—proudly Canadian," said Jerry Kroll, Chairman and CEO of Electra Meccanica. "So a partnership with Harbour Air, based in Vancouver and carbon neutral for over ten years now, makes perfect sense for our company while exemplifying cooperation and mutual respect across industry lines. What's more, it's a fantastic opportunity to change both land and air travel for the better and offer an environmentally responsible travel option to countless travelers."
Based in Canada, Harbour Air is North America's largest seaplane operator, with locations in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, Whistler, Comox, Richmond, Pitt Meadows, Salt Spring Island, Sechelt, Tofino and Seattle.
