According to this August 16th,

Unknown if Jerry will be on the 1st episode, though.

I saw a snippet here: http://www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/m/blog/season-12-trailer

It shows Jerry offering 25% of EMV for $25million about 26s in...

Share price of ECCTF has reached as high as $8. That would make that offer a great deal. Who knows? Jerry knows but he's not saying.

I'm not sure DD folks are rich enough for that offer. They often make a counter-offer. Suppose they counter with 10% for $10 million. That's about the amount Jerry was seeking last year. It's probably enough to ramp up production in Canada, assuming safety certification happens. I'd bet that would be acceptable. The share could be an issue. Jerry and friends have put in ~$10million so far, so giving up 10% or even 15% share for assurance of take-off would be good for them. I think Jerry and friends might resist shares of 25% or more.

Then, of course, we will see whether or not Buying Canadian, Three-Wheeled Vehicle, EV, lithium ion batteries in winter and single-seater appeal to a broader range of  people. Wise investors would want a market-survey to reassure them on these points. I'm not sure that's been done by EMV. All I've heard are statistics on single-passenger commuting and EVs in general. There is a market for Solo but I don't think anyone knows for sure how large it is and how rapidly it will be flooded by competitors if Solo succeeds. I think EMV will have a monopoly for at least a year and possibly two years, plenty of time to break even in a big way. I think success eventually means Solo will be available on Amazon with delivery in a few weeks... rather than a raft of dealerships. The whole selling model will be different with kiosks all over for test-drives and a few servicing points rather than the way auto-makers do things. The low parts-count and high reliability of Solo probably means selling and service don't need to be closely tied. The most-needed parts can be sold on Amazon and the electrical service, rarely needed, can be done at a few places in major cities.

Jerry gave us this photo a few days ago and just the words, "Details Soon".

This is purely speculation on my part, but:
  • The Dragons are very careful people,
  • they would not buy a share of EMV without certainty about certification, so
  • I predict the news will be that certification has been accomplished and Solo will show on air real soon now.
If this is an influx of capital due to certification, there's nothing holding Solo back from mass-production in Canada. Even if there is no corresponding influx of capital EMV can now maximize production at the existing facility and make money to expand production at a new facility. 2018 is unfolding as it should.

“This is purely speculation on my part, but” ? I hope you see actual things unfold in 2018 as you predict.  I can hardly wait to see the first SOLO driving my hometown streets from behind the handlebars of my FUV. Smile 2018 likely will be the year of  the three wheeler.
SOLO #166 reservation refunded 12/14/2017.   OVER & OUT!

I´ve never been impressed by Dragon´s Den on BBC. In this case, there´s only one solution within the solar system: http://www.tiltingvehicle.com/directory/contactus.html
It´s an astonishing fact that an elderly man on Australia´s Eastern Coast has put Mecedes Benz, BMW (and most of the other major manufactuters) to shame with a simple, viable solution. So it´s going to be a while before a general understanding of two wheel technology can truly change the way we tackle urban traffic congestion. Until then, we´re stuck with the pathetic products that motor car engineers are only able to come up with. I wish I´d held on to my old Messerschnitt 600cc bubble car. T´was better´n anything available today!

Update! In the February 7th edition of the CEO live update, Jerry said EMV's DD appearance will air on March 8th @ 8pm (Pacific?) on CBC.
