Thanks to Uli for letting me know about this one. I am in a constant dilemma should I take the motorbike or Ford when I have to commute, This is the best of both worlds and its electric. I to will be after one of these when available in Asia.
Arcimoto was founded in 2007 with the mission to build products that catalyze the shift to a sustainable transportation system. The Arcimoto name means “Future I Drive” and it is our aspiration: to devise new technologies and patterns of mobility that together raise the bar for environmental efficiency, footprint and affordability.
With an estimated 230 MPGe, Arcimoto’s SRK sips power, but you’d never know that when you hit the throttle: 0-60 in 7.5 seconds and an 80 MPH top speed means a thrilling ride and the comfort of knowing you can maneuver well in a pinch. At a target $11,900 before incentives, the SRK from Arcimoto is the daily electric vehicle for the rest of us. When you factor in the $10,000 saved on gas over five to seven years, the SRK practically pays for itself.
The base model range of 70 miles is plenty for most urban areas, but you’ll also be able to choose a 130 mile extended range option for those longer commutes. And the battery recharges in just a few hours.
Although you’re always fully enclosed in the SRK’s space frame, you can stay fully engaged with the world around you. When the rain comes, you’ll know it’s just a few minutes to reattach the optional side cover and the one-of-a-kind Eagle Wing Door.
The SRK includes a series of safety features including a space frame enclosure to protect from rollover, impact energy absorption zones in the front and back, and cross-frame side impact buffers at passengers H (hip) points. Each passenger is also protected by a 3+2 harness system that includes a standard 3-point safety belt and an additional 2 point belt over the opposing shoulder.
We anticipate that the battery system in the base model of the SRK will last at least 6 years and expect that the replacement cost will be under $2500.Actual prices for options and service items for the SRK will be disclosed as we get closer to final production.
