Arcimoto,
Inc.
® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of the world’s first Fun
Utility Vehicle™ (FUV) — an affordable and practical pure electric
vehicle for everyday commuters and fleets, today announced highlights
from the “Press Start” celebratory grand opening of the Company’s newly
renovated Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant (AMP) located in West Eugene,
which took place Saturday, November 11. More than 700 friends and
supporters of Arcimoto took part in the festivities, including company
executives, staff, investors, media, and government dignitaries. The
event marked another key milestone for the Company, having recently
surpassed 2,000 pre-orders for the Arcimoto FUV, representing a total of
more than $30 million in anticipated revenue.



The evening’s events featured tours of the new 30,000 square foot plant,
food and refreshments, live music, and more. The plant tours included a
first look at Arcimoto’s newly delivered, state-of-art
fabrication equipment
which can scale to produce an estimated 28,000
FUV chassis and frames annually. In addition to commemorating the plant
opening, everyone on-hand helped celebrate the completion of the
first-ever Signature Series FUV production vehicle.

“The grand opening celebration of our new plant was truly a
once-in-a-lifetime experience for the team, and we were delighted to
share the evening with so many friends and supporters,” said Mark
Frohnmayer, President and Founder of Arcimoto. “It’s been a decade-long
journey to get from a napkin sketch to showcasing our first-ever
customer Arcimoto FUV, and we’re now beginning the ramp to production in
volume. I would like to personally express my appreciation to everyone
who celebrated with us, and to everyone else out there who has supported
Arcimoto throughout our quest to help catalyze the shift to a
sustainable transportation system.”



The Company also announced that Frohnmayer will provide the keynote
address for the Venture Community III conference on November 14 in

company’s original institutional funding for Arcimoto as a result of
pitching the Portland-based Venture Community I, will share his advice,
progress updates and the company’s journey from inception to IPO.
