Arcimoto’s Electric 3 Wheel Vehicle

 

Priced under $20,000. the three-wheeled Pulse is Arcimoto’s car that charge 50 miles in 6 hours and does not release emissions because it charges from a standard household outlet.

Ultra-Efficient Arcimoto’s goal is to build the most efficient vehicle possible that still meets the needs of everyday driving. Cars today are inefficient by design: they are over capacity for the typical driver’s needs. We no longer live in a world where oil is dirt cheap and the environmental consequences of just torching all that energy can be ignored. The Arcimoto SRK achieves ultra-efficiency through its pure electric drive, aerodynamic tandem seating, a lightweight footprint, and three wheels for reduced road drag.

Pure Electric The pure electric drive is simple, efficient, quiet, has instantly available torque, and can be powered by renewable sources of energy. The Arcimoto SRK drive train is battery agnostic. It will have multiple options for charging as well. Plug it into your 110-volt household outlet at home, or use a 220-volt appliance outlet or J1772 charging station outlet for faster charging.

Enclosed Frame Arcimoto’s safety frame is engineered to protect occupants in a vehicle roll over and has crumple zones to provide added safety in the event of front and rear collisions. Racing seats and four-point harnesses are included for both passengers to further increase occupant safety. The enclosed frame base model can be augmented with clear polycarbonate panels to provide full protection from the elements yet preserve the unprecedented visibility.

Tandem Tandem seating provides a unique driving and riding experience. Driving in the center of a narrow vehicle allows you to truly “own the lane”. The rear seat is fully comfortable as well, so you don’t have to sacrifice usability for the best-in-class environmental efficiency offered by a narrow vehicle fuselage. This provides optimal occupant balance on the center line of Arcimoto’s three-wheeled platform.

Three-Wheeled Motorcycle The Federal Motor Vehicle code defines a motorcycle as “a motor vehicle … designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with ground” (49 CFR 571.3). Despite the SRK’s motorcycle designation, states including California allow the operation of three-wheeled motorcycles and motorcycles with sidecars with a standard driver’s license (CVC 12804.9). Most states allow motorcycles to be driven alone in carpool/HOV lanes.

The Arcimoto SRK features standard automotive controls: a steering wheel, accelerator pedal, and brake pedal. You don’t have to change the way you drive. Just do it more efficiently. With a low center of gravity for optimal balance, racing-inspired suspension and clean, smooth, quiet acceleration the drive experience is pure joy, guilt free. Check out Arcimoto vehicles!
