In the business for over 40 years, jmpr has worked with leading names in the car business such as INFINITI, Airstream and Galpin Motors.

The agency has also worked with major consumer brands like PepsiCo, Dickies, Pfizer and the National Football League.

Electra Meccanica will use jmpr’s services for event planning and media relations, as well as implementing a new digital marketing and brand building campaign.

The engagement between Electra Meccanica and jmpr comes at a time when the car company is in the process of ramping up towards mass production of SOLO, which boasts a top range of 100 miles and speeds of 82 miles per hour on a 17.3 kilowatt hour battery pack.

The vehicle was included in a recent Forbes list of the “coolest new cars” for 2020, amongst names like Aston Martin, Cadillac and Tesla.

Electra Meccanica is expecting to begin SOLO deliveries by the end of 2020.
