“The problem -- and opportunity -- we face is massive: to transform a transportation system bogged down by oversized, expensive, polluting vehicles that take up too much space, are difficult to park, contribute to congestion, and, for the vast majority of journeys, carry only one or two people and a relatively small amount of stuff,” said Mark Frohnmayer, Founder and President of Arcimoto. “At Arcimoto, we’re creating better tools for the job of everyday driving, purpose-built for the vast majority of vehicle trips at a fraction of the overall cost and environmental footprint of today’s cars. With our first retail customer deliveries planned for this June, we are encouraged by the continued support of institutional investors who share in our vision.”
The shares of common stock described above are being offered by Arcimoto pursuant to a shelf registration statement previously filed on October 3, 2018, and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on October 17, 2018.
