...but I'm not letting my feelings about that experience get in the way of the cold facts...
Cold facts are hard?

It's a provable fact that I was posting about a replacement for the Messerschmitt KR-200 in 2013.

That's back in the SRK era when they were selling for $41,000.

...especially in a world where bending metal into vehicles isn't as valuable as Big Data, AI, or proprietary technology.
To get to the $10K price point they will have to ditch the tubular upper frame for aluminum castings. The computer gaming roots of Arcimoto [IMHO] give it an advantage over your established players. Arcimoto is autonomous ready for when the time is right.

The market is evolving -- the gig economy and hyper-efficiency.
