Just a short one this time, but they're teasing us with big news later in the week! Here it is:


We’ll have a major FUV reveal later this week, but first, if you’re interested in free money, saving the planet, and you live in the state of Oregon, do we have a story for you.

Thanks to the intrepid and forward-thinking lawmakers of the Oregon Legislative Assembly, three-wheeled battery electric vehicles now qualify for the Oregon Electric Vehicle Program.

That means that all Oregonians now qualify for $2,500 off the purchase of an FUV. In a word, score!

But wait... There’s more!

If you’re a low or moderate income Oregonian, you can take an additional $2,500 off with the Charge Ahead rebate, for a total of $5,000 off in rebates. Throw in estimated gas savings and that’s an absolute steal.

To see if you quality, check out the Income Calculator here.

We’re working with state legislators around the country to add even more tax incentives for the FUV, and to remove any requirements for helmets or motorcycle endorsements. We’ll keep you abreast as we continue to make progress.

Until next time, this has been the Arcimoto newsletter, your semi-regular guide to EV legislation and human progress.

Onward,
Arcimoto

  Server Migration
Posted by: Kepesk - 02-03-2019, 12:37 AM - Forum: Site News and Updates - Replies (1)

To correct a couple bugs and increase website reliability, I will be migrating the forum to a new server in the next few days.  I don't anticipate any significant downtime, but if you try to access the forum and can't, just wait a little while and try again.

If the news we're all anticipating comes out of Arcimoto, I'll put the migration on hold so we can discuss.

See you on the other side!

Just a funny little video while we wait.




It was posted by HULA but it's clearly Goldie and #00 in the video.  maybe an old one?

I just updated my car insurance and for a joke, wanted to see if I could get a quote for an "Acrimoto" (see screenshot). I already have 2 cars and a very good record. It would cost $184 a year without comprehensive or collision. Just a basic coverage. I guessed at the engine size (800?), model (FUV?), and is it really a trike? Also I didn't claim to have any experience in riding a motorcycle and did not take any classes (because we don't have to in Oregon, I believe).

  Single 100 mile battery option
Posted by: davstewa - 01-19-2019, 03:16 PM - Forum: Upgrades and Options - Replies (16)

The battery range wasn't as good as predicted for both battery options, so they will only be offering the large battery for now, and the range estimate has been reduced from 130 miles to 100 miles. The good news is that the larger battery and the 100 mile range will be included in the base price. I think this is a big win for most future owners. They still have plans for an extended range battery that fits in the same space, but it's not something I would bet on. 100 mile range is great for me, and much better than the 70 mile range of the previous standard battery option. I'm very happy with this development, speaking for myself. I do know that some people need the 130 mile range or even more if it becomes available. I hope you have that option in the future and that it's field upgradable.

Another topic on the SRK/FUV Facebook page was future charging options beyond the 120VAC and 240VAC. Someone also suggested that the FUV could serve as an (emergency) power source, if they design that in. If they provide a way to do that, an FUV could be used to power up another FUV or even provide temporary 120VAC power for home or camper or work site use. Does anyone know if Arcimoto is considering any of these options?

  90 Mile Ramge? (Correction: 100!)
Posted by: Kepesk - 01-16-2019, 05:17 PM - Forum: General FUV Discussion - Replies (40)

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

  HyperChange on Arcimoto
Posted by: Tom - 01-08-2019, 05:36 PM - Forum: In the News - Replies (2)

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.
