2023 vehicle deliveries to start in March with new features and improvements
Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of rightsized, ultra-efficient electric vehicles, announced that it will start 2023 vehicle production on FUV and Deliverator with plans for first deliveries beginning in March. Headlining the model year 2023 product update is the new steering system that will deliver improved handling and maneuverability at all speeds while reducing steering effort by more than 40% from prior models. “During our internal testing, and pilot rollout the feedback from drivers was resoundingly positive in terms of feel and responsiveness,” said Dwayne Lum, Arcimoto Chief Product Officer. “Additionally, this is not restricted to 2023 models. Our team committed to creating a post-production version that prior model year FUV owners could elect to deploy for a small fee through our service organization,” added Mr. Lum. Arcimoto ended Q4 2022 with the most successful quarter yet delivering 89 vehicles. In 2022, Arcimoto delivered 228 customer vehicles, which increased the total number of Arcimoto vehicles on the road to more than 500.
“As we begin first deliveries in 2023, we continue to focus on improving vehicle drive quality, manufacturing cost down efforts and increasing our brand reach to grow both our consumer and commercial sales volume,” said Jesse Fittipaldi, Arcimoto Interim CEO. “Our efforts will be directed at driving sales of FUV and Deliverator and lowering manufacturing costs on these products this year.”
