That would be quite interesting to say the least.

Is that RevoPower Wheel?

I remember checking on that, but they were not able to make it work.

People seem to like XKCD.

I sat with someone from the Whitaker on the bus and I asked him what the word on the street was. He thought they were folding because the shop on Blair Street is gone and he knew someone who worked there four months and predicts a warranty work will bring them down. (Quit? Fired? In corporate speak that is 'not a good fit')

He didn't know about the new assembly plant that's expanding across 2nd Street. He thought the Achilles heel is the motors, but Arcimoto is moving to a new motors supplier.

A single data point but I found it interesting.

I would hope motors are somewhat interchangeable. The gearbox is custom.

They've changed out the motor[s] and batteries at least once.

They dumped a transaxle supplier in Culver City C but I can't find mention. There used to be a video on Youtube about the shouty 'roided-out guy that made noisy ones.

Allegedly GoCar Tours will be buying 40 Arcimoto vehicles for their tour fleet to replace the two-seat scooter-based trikes that have trouble getting up some of the San Francisco hills.

Fleet sales could be a big deal going forward.

Yep. And it could be an avenue for finding mechanics to do warranty work.
