  90 Mile Ramge? (Correction: 100!)
Posted by: Kepesk - 01-16-2019, 05:17 PM - Forum: General FUV Discussion - Replies (38)

Check it out - looks like the Arcimoto website has been changed to specify a single 90 mile range option rather than the 70/130 mile options.

This falls in line with my experience renting a Beta. I didn't run the battery dry, but my math showed that if I had, I would have gotten almost 90 miles.

Shouldn't be a problem for me; a busy day has me going about 80 miles. But I imagine others were hoping for that 130 number.

  One Pedal Drive
Posted by: davstewa - 01-14-2019, 01:49 AM - Forum: Technical Discussion - Replies (8)

Greetings! I'm a new member and I have reservation #744, living in Texas.

How does the accelerator work when decelerating? Does it have an "engine brake" feel or does it brake pretty hard when you let all the way off of it?

I'm not a fan of the "one pedal drive" concept. It's not the dynamic I'm used to with traditional cars or motorcycles. As a veteran motorcycle rider, I want my accelerator to accelerate and give me an engine brake feel when rolling off the accelerator, and I want to use brakes for any further deceleration. I'm guessing that regenerative braking can be used for that engine brake feel - up to a point - before the brake takes the regenerative braking further and adds mechanical brakes when needed.

All you FUV test riders, please tell me how the deceleration/braking works in reality.

Dave

I thought this was interesting because Galio presents his view on the bear, base and bull scenarios for Arcimoto.  He doesn't have them getting out of the woods until 2022, although at this point it is anybody's guess.

His timeline and numbers are a little off, but it's an interesting video anyway.

  How many miles a week?
Posted by: jimball - 01-06-2019, 08:58 PM - Forum: General FUV Discussion - Replies (16)

How many miles a week do you expect to drive your FUV?  I'll probably be on the low end of things.  I already get a discount from my insurance carrier for low mileage driving - less than 100 miles per week.  I own a 2002 Ford Explorer with only 130000 miles on the odometer.  A tank of gas lasts me a month, and it has a thirsty V8 engine.  I've had my Honda trike for 8 years and am averaging only 1000 miles per year on it.

Good evening!

As some may have noticed, the website has gone down a couple of times today.  This is due to a situation beyond my control, and may continue for two or three days.  I will eneavor to monitor the website and restore it right away when and if it goes down again.

Apologies for any inconvenience!

  Hello from Coachella!

Reservation #685.

Drove an early prototype at the Issaquah, WA Electric Vehicle Show in spring 2016, having deposited a few months earlier.

Visited the factory for a tour and drove a much updated version last October  Heart

Retired and living in Indio, CA (Coachella Valley/Palm Springs area). Just moved here in the past few months after living in the Seattle area most of my life.  It's a perfect place for an FUV!

Feeling a lot like a kid waiting for Santa...
