Arcimoto introduces pure-electric utility vehicle
Arcimoto announced that it has begun retail production of the Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV), which it states is “an affordable, practical, and joyful pure-electric vehicle for everyday commuters and fleets,” and is now delivering to customers in California, Oregon, and Washington.
“The FUV represents a significant step toward a sustainable transportation future in which vehicles are fully electric and right-sized for the needs of everyday drivers,” said Mark Frohnmayer, Arcimoto Founder and President. “This is a truly significant moment for Arcimoto as we launch retail production and delivery of the Fun Utility Vehicle for the first time in the company’s history.”
Built in the Pacific Northwest at the Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant (AMP), the FUV has a top speed of 75 mph (120 km/h), an EPA-rated city-driving range of 102.5 miles (165 km) per charge, 173.7 MPGe city driving fuel economy, and comes pre-loaded with heated seats, heated grips, Bluetooth speakers, removable half doors, lockable rear storage, HOV Lane access, and a Level 1 charging cable. Customers will have their choice of base and accent colors. Rockstar parking comes standard.
With an MSRP of $19,900 before gas savings, available tax credits, and rebates, the Evergreen Edition FUV is the first in a family of electric vehicles built on the Arcimoto Platform, which includes the Deliverator, built for local and last-mile delivery, and the Rapid Responder, designed for emergency medical services and campus security.
