Treffen 2019 – Registration Open

Dear Intermeccanica friends: 

2019 is a special year for Intermeccanica:  it has been 60 years since the founding of our company back in 1959 in Turin, Italy.  We want to take the opportunity to celebrate this occasion with you, our customers and friends who have made Intermeccanica the company it is today.

We are holding our Intermeccanica 60th Anniversary Tour this year based out of beautiful Oliver, BC in the middle of BC’s wine country.  This year we have moved our date in an effort to avoid the wild fire problems that have scuttled plans for the last couple of years.  Tour dates are Friday June 21st – Sunday June 23rd.    

For Intermeccanica friends who can’t make the Tour or for Tour participants who don’t want it to end, we will be holding a 60th Anniversary Party in the afternoon of Monday June 24th in Vancouver close to the old shop.  I hope you save the date as I would love to see as many of you as possible to join us on the Tour and at the 60th Anniversary Party!

For further on the Intermeccanica 60th Tour and 60th Anniversary Party information please email Robert in our office intermeccanica@telus.com with “60th Tour” in the subject line.  On behalf of the Intermeccanica & Meccanica staff and Reisner family I want to thank you for your ongoing support and friendship.  I look forward to seeing all of you in June!

 

Henry Reisner

 

Please note: we will initially be releasing only 25 spots on the Treffen for 2019, so please sign up quickly to secure your place!

 

Newsletter 2017 – What a Year at Intermeccanica


 

WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS & ALL THE BEST FOR 2017

Intermeccanica Winter 2017 Newsletter.

 
 
 
 

What a Year

2017 has been a very exciting year for me and for Intermeccanica. This past fall I completed the merger of Intermeccanica with my partner, Jerry Kroll’s, and my new venture, Electrameccanica. The new company is committed to taking the Intermeccanica history and tradition into the new millennium, opening opportunities not only on the new electric drive front, but also keeping the classic Intermeccanica products developing far into the future.

 
 
 

This new chapter opens horizons for me personally and provides Intermeccanica access to world class engineering, marketing and financial resources. The first joint IM/EMV product, our E-Roadster, made its debut at this year’s Vancouver Luxury and Supercar Show. This Roadster is powered by a 71 hp AC motor with 120 ft-lbs of torque and has a range of 200 kilometers with a lithium ion battery pack. I cannot tell you what an amazing feeling it is to be behind the wheel of this unique Intermeccanica, so smooth and effortlessly quiet! – Teaser Video click here

 
 
 

Our next EV project will hit the road by February of next year and will be powered by a new motor transaxle combination. Single speed EV transaxle with a 180 hp/235 ft-lb (peak) power! And 35 kwh of Li Ion battery projected to give us six second 0-100 kph times, can’t wait to drive this one!

 
 
 

I have a number of E-Roadster projects in my production schedule for 2018 and more inquiries each week. Goes to show that there are endless ways to enjoy an open sports car! Contact me if you are interested in learning more.

A little further down the road the engineering, marketing and finance team and I are working on our next ground-up design (to follow up our successful Electrameccanica Solo commuter EV): our Tofino two passenger convertible sportscar! The Tofino will be the natural evolution of the current Intermeccanica products, brought into the modern age with the classic “less is more” sportscar philosophy. Expect strong performance, solid construction, classic lines, quality materials and build standards. The first true sportscar of the Electric Age! We are well on our way with chassis design and expect to be driving our first chassis by the end of this coming March, with a full prototype planned for the end of 2018. See here for more info and to sign up for a newsletter.

This past year or so has seen a number of great Intermeccanica projects come through the shop. From a “forty year vision” brought to life

 
 
 

to a right hand drive Roadster for a UK customer, to three beautiful and unique air cooled six cylinder powered Intermeccanicas

 
 
 

still a personal favourite. Classic air cooled four cylinder cars ranged from traditional to a truly visionary “outlaw” inspired “S”

 
 
 

for a Vancouver area friend and customer. The ever popular Subaru liquid cooled drive option continues to grow as a percentage of my sales. This last year these included a classic looking Roadster and a racing inspired “S” with numerous detail touches.

 
 
  Looking towards 2018, my production schedule includes a pair of “super wide” “S’s”. This look has once again captured the imagination with its strong visual statement and familiar voluptuous curves.

These will pack a punch: both Subaru powered, one with a turbo motor!

I have a pair of six cylinder air cooled projects on the go. Later in the spring we will be starting production on our new E-Roadster/E-S offering. (More specs to follow soon on this new variant). As well as a pair of modern “hot rod” inspired liquid cooled “S” models. Like I said, the future looks amazing! If you are thinking about placing an order for delivery of Summer 2018, better give me a call. I would love to custom build an Intermeccanica for you!

On the Electrameccanica side of the business, our Solo is really taking off with reservations both individual and corporate coming in daily. We are in the tooling stage with our contract manufacturers and expect to see Solos coming from them later in 2018 as we ramp up local manufacturing now to fill this gap. We expect to deliver 75,000 Solos over the next three years!

Earlier this year Electrameccanica’s shares were listed on the OTCQB Exchange (ECCTF) and we are currently going through the process of uplisting onto the Nasdaq Exchange to help build on the $20 million plus equity already secured through private investment. To anchor this move we have enlisted the help of a New York based Investment Bank. It is on this strength that we will build a great new car company for a modern world.

Despite the fact that I was busy on both the IM and EMV side of the business in 2017, I did have a chance to take in numerous early Saturday morning Car & Coffee events with my eldest Ivy who worked with me this past year – which was simply amazing!

 
 
 

We had a great customer showing at the 26th Annual Great Canadian VW Show. And we were honoured to be invited to display at the Vancouver Luxury and Supercar Show in September.

 
 
  In October, I was invited by the Intermeccanica Club of Japan to join their 25th Anniversary meeting in Nagano, Japan. A huge thank you to Kenji Ikegame, the club president, and to the entire club. 25 years! These guys are like my family on the other side of the globe. If you have not been there, you need to go.

 
 
 

It was very disappointing for Holly and I to have to cancel the Intermeccanica Treffen this past summer. With all the fires and tens of thousands of our fellow British Columbians out of their homes and worse, I could not imagine driving all of you through the smoke to have a good time as others suffered. The great news is that we have a date for the 2018 Intermeccanica Treffen: August 24 – 26 with a return to the Okanagan Valley planned with great roads, food and of course, Intermeccanica people! (And maybe a winery or two as well…)

If you have time please come and visit Intermeccanica / Electrameccanica at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas January 9-12, 2018 or the Vancouver Auto Show March 28 – April 1, 2018.

In closing, I want to wish all of you and your families the very best for Christmas and for a fun and good-health filled 2018, from the Reisner family and the now expanded Intermeccanica and Electrameccanica family too!

WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS & ALL THE BEST FOR 2015

Intermeccanica Treffen XIt is hard for me to believe that this past August 2224th was our 10th Anniversary Tour. Seems like only yesterday that I was barbequing salmon with my staff at our first ever event!

The 2014 Tour took us back by popular request to the southern Okanagan Valley of beautiful British Columbia. We based our tour out of the town of Osoyoos and the Spirit Ridge Resort and Spa. We had perfect weather and I was thrilled to see a capacity group made up of many returning friends and a great number of first time participants. It is great to see this group reconnect so quickly after a full year apart. Friday night’s welcome dinner was preceded by a private tour of Tin Horn Creek Vineyards Winery with proprietor and wine maker Sandra Oldfield touring us through their vines and explaining to us about the unique micro climate of the southern Okanagan Valley. This was followed by a private tasting with canapés. Dinner took place at Miradoro Restaurant next door to the winery, where Manny and his staff made this a memorable event with an incredible table set on their beautiful patio, giving us an uninterrupted view of the valley to our south as the sun set. The meal was exquisite and everybody enjoyed themselves.

Saturday was Tour Day. We started with gourmet breakfasts in our room, catered by Holly’s sister, Penny Bees of Bees Catering. After a quick drivers’ meeting, the group of 24 cars divided themselves (with a bit of help) into faster & slower groups and we went off into the fresh morning air through some of the most fun and twisty roads I know.

Our first stop was about one hour north for coffee. When those of us in the slower group arrived, the faster guys had taken all the tables in the sun at our selected coffee shop: this is the reward for being in the lead!

After a bit of relaxation and even some time to take in a local craft market, we went off again for our longest leg of the Tour: up the steep and twisty valley slopes and through beautiful forests and meadows, eventually crossing over a pass on what must be 15 kilometres of the most fun you can ever have in a car between the Okanagan Valley and the Similkameen Valley. If you are ever in this area, just remember “Green Mountain Road”.

We lunched at the Grist Mill in Keremeos, an historic British Columbia destination where the manager Kim English gave us an introduction to the Mill and its importance to the local valley and the gold rush in the Yukon. Lunch under the trees with fresh lavender lemonade followed. Everybody had time to relax and check out the Mill if they wanted to, or just sit and chat.

Our last stop on the Tour was at Forbidden Fruits Winery along the shores of the Similkameen River where proprietors Steve Venables and Kim Brind’Amour provided beautiful fruit baskets from this organic orchard for our group to enjoy as Steve explained and poured tastings of their many delicious award winning fruit wines.The group returned to our host hotel in time to have a rest or take a swim before our dinner was served on the hotel’s patio overlooking Lake Osoyoos.

This was a fun filled day with laughs and yacking going into the early hours of Sunday! Sunday morning we brought the group together for a cars & coffee event on the crush pad of the NK’MIP (pronounced In-ka-meep) Cellars Winery at our host hotel, giving everybody another chance to look at cars and compare notes! This event was followed by our last official Tour event: a wine tasting at Road 13 Winery a few kilometres north of our host hotel. Nice selection of wines and an amazing view of storm clouds heading over the hills, but not traveling fast enough to cause any tops to be put up!

All together another great event and only possible with the support and participation of such amazing Intermeccanica customers& friends. I also must recognize the hard work of Robert Ruskey who makes this event happen every year! Also my wife Holly and daughter Ivy who, with me, was responsible for the Tour Route Book. It was also great to have Robert and Lana, Kevin and Karen, and Ali and Mashid from my staff there. I hope you give some thought to joining us in

2015 for our 11th Tour to be held Next September 18th20th.
