Arcimoto is now producing an EV that most everyone can afford and dispels the myth that electric vehicles are expensive. The new EV was “officially” launched at a “Plug-in Party” October, 20, 2015 at Arcimoto’s new showroom located at 544 Blair Blvd. in Eugene, Oregon.
Arcimoto’s SRK EV has arrived.
It has been a long wait for the 8th incarnation of Arcimoto’s EV to be ready for purchase, but it is finally here. The 2-seat 3-wheel EV gets an estimated 230 MPGe and retails for $11,900 USD, without Federal or State incentives—which is only a fraction of the cost of a new EV from Nissan, BMW or Tesla etc.
What makes the Arcimoto SRK EV different besides the 3-wheel reverse trike architecture and that it is only a 1/4 of the weight and 1/2 the width of most vehicles on the road today—is that huge 230 MPGe figure!
That number along with the low cost means that the majority of drivers should be able to save enough on annual fuel costs alone to pay for the new purchase cost of the SRK within approximately five years!
I would like to see anyone try that trick with any fossil fuel burning car or truck!
