...with vehicles like the Arcimoto, taller than they are wide...
Bad example then? Can you suggest any other?

Other 3-wheelers with exposed wheels? If that be the case, none would qualify.
Low drag requires integration of the wheels into the body, and an aerodynamic singularity.
The ARCIMOTO, Edison-2, Peraves Monotracer, Aptera, etc., are all in a separate category from coupe / sedan, notchbacks, fastbacks, and squarebacks.
Like the difference between a lakester and a streamliner.

Fully panted wheels become a three-body problem.

Perfect being the enemy of good enough, your the singularity suffers in the 40%-offset front end collision.

If we're still talking about the 'template', fully-panted, exposed-wheel vehicles are outside the discussion.
