EUGENE, Ore., April 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of rightsized, outrageously fun, ultra-efficient electric vehicles for moving people and stuff, today announced that drivers of Arcimoto Fun Utility Vehicles in Alabama will no longer need to have a motorcycle endorsement or wear a helmet under legislation signed by Governor Kay Ivey. The bill, HB 37, sponsored by Representative Charlotte Meadows, brings Alabama in line with other states that do not require a motorcycle license or helmet to operate an autocycle such as those built by Arcimoto.

“From time to time we find statutes and regulations that need to be changed because they are no longer appropriate for new, innovative products,” said Representative Meadows. “With the necessary changes provided in HB 37, I am happy to welcome another new company to Alabama!”

“We’d like to personally thank Representative Meadows and Governor Ivey for moving this legislation forward and giving drivers in Alabama access to clean, sustainable transportation options,” said Mark Frohnmayer, CEO and Founder of Arcimoto. “We can’t wait for locals and tourists alike to explore the great state of Alabama in a pure-electric FUV.”

Arcimoto vehicles are currently available in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. As soon as sales are ready to begin in Alabama, Arcimoto will reach out to preorder customers there to complete their vehicle reservations. You can save your spot in line by placing a $100 refundable preorder at Arcimoto.com/order.
