SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arcimoto, Inc.®, (NASDAQ: FUV) makers of the Fun Utility Vehicle® (FUV®), Rapid Responder™, and Deliverator™ — affordable, practical, and joyful pure electric vehicles for everyday commuters and fleets — announced today that it has delivered the first of a planned 40 FUVs to GoCar Tours, which will be used for GPS-Guided tours of San Francisco.
With GoCar’s patented GoCar Network technology, users can explore the City by the Bay on their own schedule and at their own pace. The GoCar’s mobile tour guide, the world’s first GPS-guided tour, will give directions, crack jokes, recommend restaurants, and tell the legendary stories that bring San Francisco to life.
“We’re thrilled to deliver GoCar’s first FUV, and help them take the next step in the mission to electrify tourism,” said Mark Frohnmayer, Founder and President of Arcimoto. “San Francisco is both the technology capital of the world and one of the country’s premiere tourist destinations, with more than 25 million tourist visits annually. Having FUVs available for both locals and visitors to experience will both be a great way to get potential customers in the driver’s seat, as well as elevate global awareness of the brand.”
Nathan Withrington, founder of GoCar Tours, said, “When we founded GoCar Tours in 2004, we knew even then we wanted a pure-electric fleet, but the vehicles on the market didn’t yet support our vision. Today, Arcimoto has made our dream a reality.”
