Exhibit 99.1


December 06, 2023


Dear Shareholders:


I hope by now that many of you have had the chance to review my October update regarding general next steps for ElectraMeccanica. That letter will serve as helpful background for today’s update.


I also hope that you saw our press release last week announcing the resolution of all litigation activity in connection with the electric medium-duty truck manufacturer Tevva Motors Limited.


With the prior effort to combine with Tevva in the rear-view mirror - it’s time to look forward.


I’m pleased to report the following:


1.The ElectraMeccanica team and Board - despite the obvious distractions - never slowed down on post-Tevva efforts to identify new promising candidates for our still-valid merger strategy. We’ve remained laser focused on taking every step possible to protect shareholder value in the short term and create it over the long term.


2.There remains a great deal of interest across the larger electrification sector in ElectraMeccanica. High interest rates and a conservative commercial lending environment continue to make our cash and strong balance sheet valuable and attractive to potential merger candidates.


3.Since the second week in October, 2023, we’ve engaged in methodical talks with over 20 different companies. These comprise both public and private entities across a diverse range of product sets - i.e., we’re evaluating various companies across the broader electrification spectrum. While we share stockholders’ sense of urgency around effecting a transaction, we also are mindful of the importance of careful and thorough due diligence.


4.We’ve recently narrowed the focus of these efforts to just a handful of electric businesses. We’re conducting detailed, data- and performance-driven evaluations of these candidates right now, including site visits. Others continue to come in, giving us a backup pool of candidates, should we need it.


5.Additionally, we are taking steps to further reduce our cash burn to even lower levels by year-end.


6.To positively impact our balance sheet, we are also actively exploring a wider variety of ways to leverage our state-of-the-art, 235,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Mesa, AZ.


I look forward to providing another update within the next month. Nothing is higher priority than getting ElectraMeccanica back into a viable position with the right merger partner to maximize revenue and profit as we advance electrification. In the meantime, please reach out to our shareholder relations team at: ir@emvauto.com with any questions.




Susan Docherty, ElectraMeccanica CEO and Board Member

These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management. Any other statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as “expects” or “does not expect,” “is expected,” “anticipates” or “does not anticipate,” “plans,” “estimates” or “intends,” or stating that certain actions, events or results “may,” “could,” “would,” “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved) are not statements of historical fact and should be viewed as forward-looking statements.
