  Torrot thre-wheeler
Posted by: paravil - 02-07-2018, 04:31 PM - Forum: Similar Vehicles - Replies (10)


Torrot already makes electric scooters in Spain. Their three-wheeler narrow EV is supposed to be on the market in the next few months. I wrote and asked for details but have (as yet) not received an answer - especially as to it´s `leaning´ mechanism (it´s much too narrow NOT to lean into a curve). Specs and price would seem to be OK.

Looks a bit like the Arcimoto!

  Italian Zero Cars
Posted by: paravil - 02-03-2018, 10:33 AM - Forum: Similar Vehicles - No Replies

This is probably the most advanced European manufacturer making four-wheeled EVs in the following categories:-

ZERO EM2 SPACE is a M1 car

ZERO CITY is a L7e heavy quadricycle

ZERO JUNIOR is a L6e light quadricycle

  Just got off the phone with Arcimoto!

I took some of my charging questions to the source, and asked a couple of other questions and made a couple of suggestions.

Kyle was my contact person and very helpful.

1>  I will need a portable charging station to utilize the NEMA 14-50 RV outlets.

2> For home charging, the FUV comes with a 110v cable, but will have an adapter plug that allows it to plug into a home 220v outlet. He said they are looking at several ways to go about this.  Kyle thought this would provide "near Level 2 charging, but asked me to email him so he could verify with the electrical engineers.

3>  The doors should be revealed around the end of Q1/beginning of Q2 this spring! Cool

4> The trailer hitch I asked about last year is definitely going to be there, but they are waiting for the start of production to add it.  Kyle says it is a simple thing for them to do, so they are putting it off while they deal with everything else.

5> I asked if the handlebars would lock for security & safety like all other motorcycles.  I could hear the light bulb over his head firing up! Tongue   That feature had never occurred to them, but he realized that it would be a very valuable addition.

6>  I suggested they consider placing attachment points for one of the major motorcycle luggage companies saddlebag mounting hardware such as Givi.  Again, I heard the light bulb. Wink   All Arcimoto needs to do is make certain that there is a place to attach the hardware, or add it as an option.  They do not need to provide the actual mount or consider making their own luggage/saddlebags.

Kyle said he was going to bring up my suggestions at their next meeting.  I asked about delivery if I place a deposit when the sides are revealed in a couple of months.  Kyle said probably Q2, 2019, but hinted that maybe as soon as Q1, 2019.  I think I'm going to give myself a Valentines present and reserve mine this month.

  e-Go Life .... now in full production

.... doesn´t look as bad as I thought it would be. The specs are strill in German, but easy to understand:-

Price (with state subsidy) is acceptable.

But not my cup of tea!

  Public charging stations.
Posted by: jimball - 01-31-2018, 12:19 AM - Forum: General FUV Discussion - Replies (21)

I was looking through the plugshare map of public charging stations  and was surprised at the number of charging stations in my part of the country.  (I had no idea!)  On closer examination, I see that there is no industry standard plug.  Sad  The EV plug is common, but not ubiquitous.  I could theoretically take my Archimoto just about anywhere I wanted, knowing there would be a charging station available to get me home, but it looks like I would need a trunk load of charging adaptors - not to mention that Tesla Supercharger stations are incompatible.

What was particularly annoying was reading comments from some users about finding EV station parking spots taken by ice vehicles. Angry
