That's the platform that Arcimoto abandoned for handlebar steering. It saved hundreds of pounds and inches of wheelbase.

Quote:
This design change was a eureka moment for Arcimoto founder Mark Frohnmayer that created a chain reaction of upgrades to the design. The transition from a steering wheel to handlebars significantly reduced the weight (by 700 lbs.) and product complexity, while improving battery performance, ease of entering and exiting the vehicle, and ride quality, ultimately giving it a sportier feel.
