The company will offer test drives of its ultra-efficient electric vehicles alongside Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) leader TESIAC, and in cooperation with “Best in Class” EV charging platforms Beam and JuiceBar, to demonstrate future-proof, smart city, shared mobility options for public and private sectors.
EUGENE, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of fun, affordable, and ultra-efficient electric vehicles for everyday drivers and fleets, today announced that it will showcase the Fun Utility Vehicle and Deliverator during the 2021 Electric Mobility Symposium being held at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego on June 24.
Alongside Beam, creators of the world’s fastest deployed solar EV Arc chargers; JuiceBar, makers of the most powerful Level 2 EV chargers on the market; and TESIAC, a Managed Services Platform that delivers Infrastructure-as-a-Service to public and private entities, Arcimoto will demonstrate the potential for shared fleets of ultra-efficient EVs to be deployed on military bases, in smart cities, and beyond.
“One of the greatest challenges to EV adoption today and the development of self-driving shared fleets of tomorrow is the lack of advanced, future-proofed charging and management infrastructure, which will enable us to get from A to B as efficiently and affordably as possible, while benefiting from zero emissions, optimum utilization, and plenty of charge left in every vehicle,” said Jesse Fittipaldi, Arcimoto Chief Strategy Officer. “We’re proud to collaborate with the leaders in mobility infrastructure TESIAC, Beam, and JuiceBar to create an EV technology ecosystem that will power the sustainable, shared, self-driving fleets for both public and private sectors, especially for underserved communities who would benefit from these advancements the most.”
“Private-Public Partnerships have the power to make tremendous strides in solving large, complex challenges. Working with the U.S. Marines, Arcimoto, JuiceBar, TESIAC, and other partners at EMS, we are demonstrating the promise of truly clean mobility,” said Beam Global CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “Listed on the GSA contract, the EV ARC solar-powered charging system generates and stores its own electricity to power JuiceBar and other brand chargers and charge an array of military and civilian EVs. We’re thrilled to be a part of this vision of connectivity and clean mobility.”
“The future for fleets is contactless, shared, and electric – providing a seamless experience to customers while reducing overall fleet costs,” said Paul Vosper, CEO JuiceBar. “JuiceBar’s flagship Gen 3 chargers are designed to accommodate the demands of fleet owners with a unique open protocol smart network and the fastest Level 2 EV chargers on the market, providing a cost-effective charging solution. Working with TESIAC, Arcimoto, and Beam provides customers with powerful, customized turnkey solutions that bring sophisticated technologies to address power needs and installation issues, offering reliable and flexible infrastructure for fleet operators.”
“At TESIAC, we focus on scalable and integrated infrastructure that efficiently and effectively addresses the mobility, technology, energy, and capital challenges faced by government agencies and commercial industries to meet their sustainability goals and/or mandates. We believe affordable, ultra-efficient EVs such as the Arcimoto FUV will be pivotal in that effort,” said Karen Morgan, a Managing Partner at TESIAC. “In combination with innovative charging technologies provided by Beam and JuiceBar, we have the opportunity to create an EV technology cluster which could be rapidly deployed on military bases or within communities at large, granting access to highly affordable electric transportation to travel not only across military bases, but nearby cities, campuses, shopping areas, or wherever you need to be.”
The 2021 Electric Mobility Symposium begins at 9:00 a.m. PDT at MCAS Miramar, and will feature key government leaders discussing changing policies and plans for electric mobility. The latest technologies with industry-leading organizations will showcase the latest in what is possible for use on and off base, both now and in the near future. MCAS Miramar is a leader in infrastructure electrification and mobility, with 5G-enabled networks, microgrids with multiple renewable energy sources, and autonomous vehicle proving grounds.
