Arcimoto — makers of the Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV) — a pure electric vehicle for everyday drivers and fleets, announced today that the grand opening of Arcimoto’s first ever customer experience and rental location, will take place Saturday in Eugene, Ore.
The facility, located at 543 Blair Boulevard in the historic Whiteaker neighborhood, will serve as showroom, service center, and a rental center for FUVs in Arcimoto’s hometown of Eugene.
“Providing an efficient and friendly means for people to try out new products is a key challenge for every next-generation vehicle developer," said Mark Frohnmayer, Arcimoto president and founder. "We believe our FUV hubs will afford prospective Arcimoto customers the opportunity to experience the joy of this entirely new kind of vehicle, without the pressures typical of the traditional sales process. We plan to let customers rent by the hour, half day, or full day, to experience an Arcimoto as if it were their own. We believe this will be a real advantage for our existing preorder customers and folks new to the brand alike.”
Arcimoto has accumulated 3,102 preorder deposits for its retail series FUV, representing approximately $46.5 million in anticipated revenue.
