Arcimoto’s 3-wheeled electric fun-mobile is headed for mass production, residential delivery

Eugene, Oregon-based Arcimoto’s three-wheeled electric Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV) is marching towards an annual production rate of 50,000 vehicles in two years. And to get all of those FUVs to their new owners, Arcimoto has just announced a partnership with DHL.

The Arcimoto FUV is a street-legal electric vehicle designed in a tadpole trike setup with a single rear wheel. That offers increased stability, which is important for the fast and fun 75 mph (120 km/h) EV.

Arcimoto’s just-announced DHL partnership is designed to provide nationwide home delivery of the electric three-wheelers, beginning with the 48 contiguous states…

The new delivery solution will be an important part of achieving Arcimoto’s stated goal of reaching an annual production rate of 50,000 vehicles in the next 24 months.

While producing vehicles is one hurdle, getting them to customers is an entirely separate problem to be solved. Just ask Tesla.
