Arcimoto was founded in 2007 to catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. The name Arcimoto means “Future I Drive,” and it is the company’s aspiration to devise new technologies and patterns of mobility that raise the bar for environmental efficiency, footprint and affordability. Arcimoto plans to achieve its mission by replacing the global urban and suburban use of 4,000 lb. internal combustion engine vehicles for regular daily trips with the Arcimoto SRK®, a pure electric solution that is a quarter of the weight, a third the purchase cost, and ten times as efficient as the U.S. average passenger car.
The Arcimoto SRK defines the Fun Utility Vehicle category. The SRK delivers a thrilling ride experience, exceptional maneuverability, full comfort for two passengers with gear, optimal urban parking flexibility, and estimated 230 MPGe ultra-efficient operation — all at an affordable target base model price of $11,900. As we shift to a self-driving future, the Arcimoto SRK platform will provide the low cost, ultra-efficient foundation for urban fleet autonomy as well.
The Generation 8 alpha vehicle(s) will be on display in the expo hall.
All admissions dollars will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank. For more information about NEDME, please visit www.nedme.com.
