The Deliverator is the aptly-named future of urban package delivery. At least, it is if Arcimoto has anything to say about it. The latest permutation of its Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV), aims directly a market niche with a lot of possibilities. Just looking at it, one can easily imagine its 20 cubic foot cargo box emblazoned with any number of brands — from Uber Eats to your local pizza place.
This latest version of its electric three-wheeler is the third that the Oregon outfit has rolled out this year. We’ve previously seen the Evergreen Edition, the high-spec trim level of its passenger vehicle, as well as the Rapid Responder — an all-electric trike geared toward serving the security and first responder community. They all speak to the flexibility of the Arcimoto platform.
The Deliverator is said to boast over 20-plus cubic feet of cargo space. The company says it targeting a 75-mph top speed, along with a 350-pound carrying capacity. The initial price tag reads $19,900, but complete pricing, options, and specifications will be made available in the near future. The Deliverator could be ready to be delivered to customers sometime next year.
Arcimoto Announces The Deliverator, Three-Wheel Pure Electric Local Delivery Vehicle
Built for small businesses and fleets, the Deliverator will reduce last-mile-delivery costs compared to traditional delivery vehicles.
EUGENE, Ore., March 19, 2019 – Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV) is proud to announce that the Deliverator, a three-wheel, pure electric local delivery vehicle, is now in development at the Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant in Eugene, Ore.
Designed to quickly, safely, and affordably get the goods where they need to go, the Deliverator will target 100 city miles of range, 75-mph top speed, 350-pound carrying capacity, and 20+ cubic feet of cargo space. The Deliverator will be more efficient by an order of magnitude than traditional delivery vans and trucks – with one quarter of the footprint. The Deliverator Cargo Cube can be customized to carry a wide array of products including, parcels, pizza, perishable groceries, pharmaceuticals, drycleaning, and more pizza.
Starting at $19,900, the Deliverator is available for pre-order now. Deliverator production is expected to begin in 2020. Full pricing, options, and specs will be announced in the coming months.
“With the Deliverator, we set out to create a vehicle that would solve the problem of local and last-mile delivery, which has traditionally been dominated by big, expensive, polluting delivery trucks and vans that often block traffic and increase congestion in urban environments,” said Mark Frohnmayer, President and Founder of Arcimoto. “The Deliverator’s nimble, small footprint can improve fulfillment and delivery times by allowing the operator to more easily move through traffic and find parking compared to a full-sized automobile. With reduced fuel and maintenance costs, we believe the Deliverator will offer significant per-mile savings. For small business owners and corporate fleets alike, the Deliverator delivers.”
The Deliverator is the third vehicle built on the ultra-efficient Arcimoto Platform, following the Fun Utility Vehicle, designed for everyday drivers, and the Rapid Responder, developed to serve emergency, security and law enforcement needs, at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact of traditional EMS vehicles.
