Kizzee ran away and when deputies caught up to him, he punched one of them in the face while dropping a bundle of clothing he was carrying, authorities said.

This Single-Seat Electric Vehicle Is Positioning Itself as the Perfect Pandemic Ride Los Angeles Magazine

The makers of a single-seat, all-electric vehicle are doubling down on the concept that driving alone may be the ultimate in social distancing. At a moment when companies are tightening marketing campaigns and fleeing places like shopping malls, the Canadian makers of the Solo are veering straight into malls and investing big in billboards. They’ve already set up at Westfield Century City in an effort to lure in mall shoppers.

They’re hoping people will embrace this latest eco-friendly mode of transportation, both during and after the pandemic. “It just so happens that it’s a perfect vehicle for COVID even though it wasn’t designed for that purpose,” explains Paul Riviera, CEO of Electra Meccanica, the company that manufactures the microcars. “Most people drive alone. Look in the majority of cars and you’ll see three to four free seats.”

Despite looking something like a motorcycle hybrid, the three-wheeled electric vehicle drives like

I really love this place. I’ve always felt welcomed and cared for. I’ve been here multiple times for smog checks with a previous car and after getting to know everyone… Avo is AMAZING… I decided to use them to replace the breaks on my new Porche Macan and to take care of my oil change. The new breaks started squeaking a bit a day or two after driving it and Avo fit me in immediately to fix the issue. He kept in touch with me through the whole process to keep me aware of when they would be finished so I could come pick up the car. I’ve only had positive experiences at Omag’s. Completely recommend!


I was referred to Omag’s by a friend of mine . Avo was amazing and super friendly , great customer service
