Since 2007, Arcimoto has been refining generations of prototypes, culminating in the FUV, the most innovative, efficient, sustainable, and fun three-wheel, dual-passenger electric vehicle on the road. In 2018, we plan to build and deliver four discrete series of vehicles and open our first in-market Arcimoto Experience Centers.
More than half the world’s population lives in urban centers and that number is projected to grow to 68 percent by 2050. Arcimoto is poised for this sea change: With its light footprint, nimble navigation, space economy, and cost dynamics, the FUV is the perfect solution to city congestion everywhere.
Looking forward, Arcimoto is ideally positioned to be a key player in the shift to self-driving fleets and the 85 percent of rideshare trips that carry a single passenger.
In September 2017, Arcimoto went public on the Nasdaq – a hugely successful IPO – which allowed the company to move into the Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant in Eugene, Oregon, and purchase the equipment necessary to fabricate in-house all of the FUV’s metal parts.
The world is taking notice: Arcimoto currently has 2,900 pre-orders and counting. We will be opening our first “rentail” customer experience centers this year, first in Eugene and then in San Diego County. The franchise-able rentail model and the ultra-efficient manufacturing facility build-out and business model provide opportunities for partners from around the globe to participate in the story of Arcimoto, the story of transforming transportation.
