Since its introduction in 1997, more than 4,000 of the original Solo's have entered service in the UK, including exports to the USA, Western Europe and beyond.
The Solo SR was launched in 2007 as a premium model with an entirely new exterior appearance and has grown significantly in popularity. All Solo SR models will be available with either Mercedes-Benz or Cummins drivelines allied to Allison transmissions.
