Arcimoto SRK Is One Of The Most Affordable Electric Vehicle On The Market

Arcimoto SRK is one of the most affordable electric vehicle on the market today.

Arcimoto SRK is an all-electric electric vehicle that uses three wheels instead of four, and is sold today at a very affordable price.

Mark Frohnmayer, founder and CEO of the Arcimoto company (headquartered in Eugene, Oregon) says about their green vehicle that they have planned to build an electric vehicle that is much closer to a motorcycle because only this way they were able to get the efficiency and the fun factor specific to motorcycles.

However, the vehicle has an enclosed cabin, is very stable, and can carry groceries much easier than a motorcycle.

I remember that back in January 2016, one of my colleagues (Danny) wrote an article about Arcimoto Generation 8 SRK, which was considered at that time, an electric vehicle that could shake the electric car market.

The breakthrough moment for Frohnmayer has arrived when he decided to replace the steering wheel specific to cars with a motorcycle handlebar.

By switching to handlebar steering, the passengers of the vehicle have been moved to a more upright sitting position (something similar to the position on a scooter), and the vehicle has lost almost two feet from its length, and the weight dropped by almost 600 pounds.

The weight loss generated a price drop, and this way the three-wheeled electric vehicle has become an affordable one.

Arcimoto Generation 8 SRK has a starting price of $11,900 (10,100 euros), doe 0 to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 80 mph (128 km/h).

The range of the vehicle starts at 70 miles (for the cheapest model) and goes up to 130 miles, which makes it perfect for your daily commute.

The company has already taken 1,500 reservations for the vehicle (this is just the beginning says Frohnmayer), and hopes that their green vehicles could do something in the fight against global warming and climate change.

By using the Arcimoto Generation 8 SRK for the daily commute, your daily travel to the workplace will become a sustainable and eco-friendly one.

    Volkswagen GTI Mk5 is fairly unique among today’s engines because produces huge amounts of torque at a relatively low number of RPMs.
    Arcimoto SRK has only three wheels, but VW GTI is available in two versions of petrol and diesel and is sold at a very reasonable price.
