The Arcimoto Deliverator Is a Three-Wheeled EV Designed for Local Deliveries
With society's every-growing dependancy on the delivery of goods,the Deliverator aims to fill a void currently found in delivery vehicles.
Urban deliveries oftentimes involve items too large for a scooter or motorcycle,but too small to justify a car or van.Oregon-basedArcimotobelieves it has the perfect solution: a three-wheeled electric vehicle called the Deliverator.
Splitting the difference between two-wheeled and four-wheeled vehicles,the Deliverator has a cargo capacity of 350 pounds with over 20 cubic feet of cargo space.The covered storage compartment gives the Deliverator an advantage over scooters and motorcycles,with one quarter the footprint of a car or van.The company said it is aiming for a range of 100 miles in city driving,with a top speed of 75 miles per hour.
The Deliverator is based on the same basic platform as Arcimoto's passenger vehicle,dubbed "FUV" for "Fun Utility Vehicle." The first FUVsbegan beta testing last year.Arcimoto also designed a version called the Rapid Responder,aimed at emergency services.
Arcimoto is currently takingpre-ordersfor the Deliverator,with production scheduled to start in 2020.The base price is $19,900;Arcimoto said full pricing,options,and specs will be announced "in the coming months." The Deliverator will be built at Arcimoto's factory in Eugene,Oregon.
Several other companiesalready sellor areplanning to sellthree-wheeled vehicles.These are usually marketed as alternatives to passenger cars or motorcycles,but Arcimoto is taking things in a different direction by pursuing delivery services as customers.The rise of app-based services like UberEats,Postmates,and DoorDashhas led to an uptick in urban deliveries.But these services tend to rely on freelance drivers,who likely want vehicles that can double as year-round,everyday transportation.
We will see how things shape up as we get closer to 2020.
