“If I were to summarize the current state of Arcimoto today in one word, it would be ‘acceleration’,” said Mark Frohnmayer, Arcimoto Founder and CEO. “On every front critical to the company’s growth and achievement of its mission, we are stepping up the pace. This includes the opening of our new production facility, the RAMP, the onboarding of key team members to drive the growth of critical parts of the business, major strides forward on the development of next-generation products, the opening of new market territories, expansion of our rental model to drive customer awareness and adoption, and engagement of fleet partners and relationships to drive the commercial side of the business. I am incredibly excited about the road ahead.”
