“Uber is thrilled to showcase Arcimoto’s affordable, ultra-efficient, three-wheeled electric vehicle, made here in Oregon,” said Jon Isaacs, Uber Public Affairs Manager for Oregon. “In addition to making personal transportation more convenient, we are committed to reducing the environmental impact and cost of trips for Uber drivers. The Arcimoto platform points the way to a dramatic reduction in emissions for everyday vehicle travel.”
“We have always envisioned the Arcimoto platform as an ideal solution for ridesharing and delivery applications like Uber and UberEATS,” said Arcimoto Founder and President Mark Frohnmayer. “We are honored to be able to share the Arcimoto experience with Uber’s riders and driver-partners, and demonstrate that lighter-footprint vehicles can make travel through the city more convenient and more fun.”
Uber’s mission is to make transportation as reliable as running water—everywhere, for everyone. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get a ride at the touch of a button? Six years and over two billion trips later, we’ve started tackling an even greater challenge: reducing congestion and pollution in our cities by getting more people into fewer cars.
