Arcimoto and City of Orlando Launch Joint Municipal Pilot Program to Test Ultra-efficient Electric Vehicles in City Fleets
Arcimoto, Inc. (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of affordable, practical, and joyful pure electric vehicles for everyday commuters and fleets, today announced that it has entered into its first municipal fleet pilot program, with the City of Orlando. Together, the City will test Arcimoto vehicles across six city departments, continuing Mayor Buddy Dyer’s efforts to transform Orlando into one of the most environmentally-friendly, economically and socially vibrant communities in the nation.
“We are thrilled to work with Mayor Dyer and the City of Orlando, one of the most forward-looking cities in the country when it comes to increasing sustainability and tackling the climate crisis,” said Arcimoto Founder and President, Mark Frohnmayer. “We believe Orlando’s use of our practical, ultra-efficient, small-footprint vehicles will serve as a model for other cities across the country that aim to aggressively electrify their fleets.”
Over the course of the 90-day pilot program, Arcimoto vehicles are expected to be tested by Orlando Fire Department, Police Department, Code Enforcement Division, Permitting Services, Venues, and Parking Enforcement. This is the latest milestone of the City’s Office of Sustainability and Resiliency, which has recently worked to convert hundreds of fleet vehicles to electric, hybrid, or compressed natural gas; is working to enable more than 500 Level 2 charging stations citywide; and launched sharing programs for cars, scooters, and bikes.
“Our goal today is to be the most sustainable city in the Southeast,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “To achieve this vision, we must continue to seek out smart solutions that are more environmentally-friendly, efficient, and cost effective. We are hopeful that Arcimoto vehicles will be able to support the needs of many departments across our organization. We look forward to putting these innovative EVs to the test.”
