I try to tell myself that I've got the algorithm to show me what I want to see; then I remember it never recommends Suspicous 0bservers.

I saw the rock 'n roll back seat in person. They haven't shown much interest in it since. Of course, they left the Eagle door behind as well. I think I could make that work by having the door slide back and then lift.

Well, Youtube finally let me know about this. Three days old.

Arcimoto has a fourth model. A camera car. They needed one and there's a niche market. Flatbed truck to follow.

Here's the whole clip:



There's a quick shot of a new door hinge assembly.

Strikes me you need the flatbed truck, but like search engines I won't do Suspicious Observers.

5th wheel... Maybe they'll call it 4th wheel?

I'd like to see a four wheel four motor Arcimoto. Similar to the VW XL Sport concept.

Then you might not know that the search for Dark Matter is winding down after a fruitless 10-year search. It was electrified dust the whole time

Well, unlike the Piaggio Ape which could haul some actual load without a trailer, this might be the best approach with an Arcimoto. Unless a 4-wheeled model gets certified, yet I wouldn't hold my breath for that.
