International registration
#1
.... not just US, but EU and other owners would likely appreciate any news as to whether the Solo conforms to common international registration criteria.

I've gotten a reply from ElecM.

"We are talking to US dealership people across the US. Europe, Africa, Japan etc are engaged as well.
We are trying to set up as much dealerships as possible, so best case you pick up your SOLO right from a major city close by you and drive the SOLO home.
Otherwise, we will work something out regards to shipping closer to delivery date."

Sounds good to me.
In time all will be revealed Wink

EM Canada 'seems' to be getting it done and covering all of the details, while asking the fan base for a simple $250 refundable reservation deposit........to show support, like the Arcimoto business model.  I hope for a successful reveal on the 9th.  I'm over the top optimistic about the Signature Series Solo delivery schedule.
SOLO #166 reservation refunded 12/14/2017.   OVER & OUT!

The EU directives promise to be liberal and supportive in registering new (and foreign) evs, so I´m hopeful that I´ll get mine registerted without too much bother. But I´d like a bit more information up front.

All is Solo quiet on the International, Canadian, and USA owners threads.  Patiently waiting on compliance news.  Doesn't seem like the process should take this long.  I wonder who will register the first Solo in the USA?

According to Tanom Motors, it took them three years.
Even though I don't think it will take EMV anywhere even close to that long, I'm just sayin'

When Reissner announced that the Solo had successfully been certified, I contacted my friends at the National German Automobile Association (ADAC), and after some time they informed me that they had been unable to confirm that an internationally valid registration certificate had been filed. They therefore assume Reissner could only mean that a national certificate had been issued, enabling the Solo to be sold within Canada´s national borders.

Some time back, I received a `phone call from a representative of Intermeccanica who was touring Europe to recruit sales agents. A prospective agent in Switzerland was mentioned. Nothing more was heard of this European sales network. I was advised that it would be highly unlikely that the expense of attaining local Swiss registration would be worthwhile, due to the relative size of the Swiss market. Whereas international and/or EU registration would be recognised in EU and non-EU countries.

The Solo, with its steering wheel, two headlights and fully enclosing doors would not fit the international classification of a "motor cycle" and could only be certified when classed as a "car". This would entail an expensive series of tests.

It is hard to believe that Kroll has signed a contract with a Chinese manufacturer to mass produce the Solo without having first procured internationally valid certification.  If such certification does exist, it would be of interest for details to be published. If it doesn´t, investment in the Company would seem to be highly risky.
