Does Arcimoto have any rivals?
Tesla? It's not the same market segment, but they're the only other one on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

I just got back from the event at the factory. I can't find my camera so no pix, but there is a live stream (currently experiencing some difficulties):



The first one goes into Mark Frohnmayer's driveway. He chose Crystal Claret Red. It's noice.

edit:
I talked with Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield from Transport Evolved. I planted the thought that the eClassics VW floorpan will necessarily need a new VIN. That will bring a lot of old sheetmetal out of old barns. My 1958 Baja is untitled, for example.

There was a similar project in Brazil, the Pompéo, but it had a side-by-side seating arrangement instead of tandem.

T-Rex, Aptera, Sidewinder. Not many electric tandems.

It looks like the [not]live stream works now.

Solo. I've seen one around my house and I saw one in Victoria, BC last week.

Maybe Paul Elio will buy you an Arcimoto. That would be awesome.

Good to see you both in that video. Surprised you're accepting of such a high profile online.

Now I think freebeard has been compromised and an operative has assumed his online identity.

Either that, or he's off/on his meds :P
