I stopped by All-Pro Steel for some pipe and two people asked about my Arcimoto hat. They both knew people there.

Shoulda guessed! I thought it was some new platform I hadn't heard of yet.

Should have guessed because Freebeard was talking.

We do not have any Bing or... there still are other search engines of which one could conceivably be a fan, right?

Oh, right! Publisher's Clearinghouse has a search function! I do not know what powers it. I always search for:

Knibb High Football Rules!

There is a chance that I am occasionally slightly less mature than I want to believe.

just joined the forum, so i haven't read the 48 pages, but this reminds me a lot of the renault twizy

only two seats so not a viable vehicle for me, but you can pick these up pretty cheap now in the uk, like 5-6k

The difference for me is that I'm not moved at all by the Twizy. I think it's the loft line, or profile. The Twizy body is symmetrical front to back. The Arcimoto respects the aerodynamic Template we're so fond of in the Aerodynamics sub-forum.

A closer comparison is the [gas-powered] Elio. A better comparison is the Edison2, which is still headed toward production. Their plan is a four-wheel four-passenger electric at a $12K price point.

No startup is going to sell a road legal car for $12k. How many times are startups going to sell the same fantasy before people stop believing it?

Arcmoto cant even sell their motorcycle for $12k
