Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Sometimes covering tech is just plain fun. Not always…but sometimes. I got a chance not long ago to drive around the Arcimoto FUV…through the streets of the company’s home base in Eugene, Oregon. It is a three wheeled electric vehicle…about a hundred miles on a charge…two seats…and plenty of pick up. No wonder Arcimoto calls it a fun utility vehicle. CEO Mark Frohnmeyer and his team have a wall of inspiration near the entrance where students and other visitors have been using a Sharpie to write messages of encouragement ..
“It’s something that when we go through challenging times..and an electric vehicle company, a start up…is a challenging ride…this is one of the things that keeps us going.”
Frohnmeyer hopes to bring the price down to the 10 thousand dollar range and eventually create self driving versions.
