soloowners.net/pogson update: There's been a discussion of the charging times and Jerry did answer a question about that in the last CEO update. At 120V 6h charging definitely will not go from 0-100% charge but it will almost certainly top up a battery for the typical commuter. At 240V 3h charging is possible but it depends on the circuitry in Solo. Nissan charges extra for 3h charges in Leaf even for 240V. We asked what the charging current/power for Solo was and did not receive an answer. Some owner or test-driver may have to supply us that data. Leona, the first owner, finds she's always at 100% charge when she sets out after as little as 2h charging.

Special mention soloowners.net/pogson update: Missing are specs about winter driving. Nissan, for instance, recommends against use/storage below -15C/ 5 deg F. I guess a heated garage or even a tarp and heater would do wonders as long as trips could be kept short. It may be that some commuters for January/February might have to use an ICE. That would be sad but Jerry or someone did say they are looking at heating/cooling the battery to take care of this albeit at reduced range as the energy to heat the battery comes from the battery once Solo is off the charger. I wish EMV had an operator's manual and put it on line so potential buyers could see what it's like to be an owner. Most of us know the horrors of ICEd vehicles. I'm sure a couple of points about care and feeding of batteries would not scare people off. It's just that we should know the details before buying the car.

Our letter of intent from September 18th, 2017 shows all reservations combined. We have several reservation systems. Corporate reservation, individual reservation and so on. 

Your reservation is registered in the individual reservation system. It shows that you have the SOLO car# **5. This number doesn't reflect your position in line. It's just an indication for the company that SOLO #**5 is reserved for you Your Name. Your Order# C-**9 is for the books. So, if I bring up your name to our financing department they will know you Your Name under C-**9. If I speak to our production team they will know you under Order# **5.

Jerry has stated from the very start that EMV specified SOLO parts would be sourced from around the world. The quality of those parts and the quality of any contracted build specs are set and controlled by EMV.

Reservations made as 11/08/2017 will be delivered Mid 2019.

Everybody here does realize that they had their massive announcement over a YEAR ago their "final", shipping product (which they have continually revised since) and have only sold how many to paying customers since Sep 2016? Two? Three?

I *really* want them to succeed, but ...

I would *love* to buy the published (specs) vehicle, but at this point (since I am not "in the queue") will wait until several hundred have been shipped before plunking down money.

No risk refundable deposit to be in the queue.   EMV is already successful.  IMO

Lynn D, thank you for the work you put into compiling all of this up-to-date information.
I've put the direct link to it at the very top of the list in our resource library.
I've moved the actual post/page here so we can discuss the info in a thread.
Seriously, thank you. Love it. We need more of it.
