Arcimoto San Diego Premiere Event: We are just about ready to open the doors to our upcoming San Diego rental facility. Before we do, we’ll be hosting friends, family, and supporters for a happy hour with Mark on Friday, May 7, from 4 to 7 p.m. On Saturday May 8 and Sunday May 9, we will also be giving free test drives in our new rental fleet, starting at 11 a.m. each day. Stop on by Arcimoto San Diego at 630 Tenth Ave, San Diego, CA 92101.

Eugene Rental Shop: More good news! We’ll be opening our rental shop in Eugene in June. There’s no better way to see the beautiful Willamette Valley than from the cockpit of an FUV. Stay tuned for all the details.
There were some events (5th St Market, One Moto 2021) already past.

I was watching a YouTube video where a Turo business (a car sharing program) showed their 3 wheel reverse trike, a Vanderhall, was their best renting car. Better than their C8 Corvette. Now the Vanderhall does cost twice an Arcimoto and it is a bit of a work of art style wise, but I see no reason a Arcimoto wouldn't rent for $150-$200 for 1/2 day in a big city. The key would be to get them recharged and back out for 2, 8 hour rentals every weekend, and then a few all day rentals during the week. Seems like $500/week or more would be pretty possible.

They experimented with a rental location once before. It was $80 a day with a promise of $40 half days.

I waited for the half-day rate (I wanted to do a speed run up College Hill) but it faded away when they moved into the AMP.

Archie tours for places that are just too spread out for Segway tours?

If you have an iPhone, we could do a photogrammetry capture. I wish they'd issue an official 3D model.

At 15:09 they discuss Platform 2. This will be more affordable than the FUV.

Like the Can-Am Ryker versus the Spyder?

Will they actually sell it for $12k?

Platform 1 includes the FUV, Rapid Responder, Deliverator, Roadster, and "Future Versions," specifically the Cameo, which has a rear-facing passenger seat, for filming applications.

That will make the way for a pickup.

Platform 2 will be closer in size to a bike, with a target price of $2,000, suitable for 1-2 people to get coffee.

So, $3,000?

That is how much I pay for one car to rule them all!
