This will help offset some of the the impact of the price rise of the vehicle that surely must happen given the other news. Trump is reinstating the 25% tariff on Chinese made goods Funny how Jerry has never mentioned the tariff before. On the last Facebook live webcast, someone asked him how the trade war between Canada and China was impacting Electrameccanica. He gave a really quizzical look and said he didnt know there was one. Then muttered along about how these things change everyday etc... At the time I didnt make much of it. But I think he was reacting to having dodged a bullet on a question on the USA/China trade dispute. The market for the Solo is California. So with Trump slapping 25% tariffs on cars from China, this will probably absorb any profit that they have on their cars, based on their stated margins. Unless they can raise the price to offset the tariff. I can't imagine the Democrats will be in a hurry to remove tariffs on cars that are stealing jobs from good Americans.
