EUGENE, Ore., March 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of rightsized, outrageously fun, ultra-efficient electric vehicles for moving people and stuff, today announced that it has entered into a joint pilot program with Virginia Clean Cities to test the Fun Utility Vehicle, Deliverator, and Flatbed across the state.

Over the course of the pilot program beginning on April 15, Arcimoto vehicles will be tested across the state by a variety of state and municipal organizations.

“Virginia Clean Cities has been leading the charge for sustainability in Virginia for years now, and we are perfectly aligned with their mission, which is critical for Virginia and the world,” said Arcimoto Founder and CEO, Mark Frohnmayer. “The Arcimoto platform offers meaningful advantages over gas-powered fleets, including daily utility, total cost of ownership, and energy efficiency. We’re proud to work with Virginia Clean Cities to help them meet the state’s sustainability goals, which are substantial.”

Virginia Clean Cities advances air quality improvement, economic opportunity, and energy security through deployment of alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure, education programs, and other petroleum reduction activities. The Virginia Clean Cities program is sponsored by the Department of Energy in accordance with the Energy Policy Act of 1992. This legislation’s express intent is to ensure national energy security by reducing dependence on imported petroleum products. The Clean Cities program was chartered to help achieve this objective by promoting alternative fuel use in the transportation sector.

“We are steadfast in our commitment to reducing carbon emissions and petroleum dependence in Virginia, and are thrilled to help individuals, municipalities and vehicle fleets test Arcimoto’s innovative family of rightsized EVs that have the potential to not only improve public health but our state economy as well,” said Alleyn Harned, Executive Director of Virginia Clean Cities. “We hope this pilot will serve as a meaningful step in making electric transportation more efficient, accessible, affordable, and fun.”
