Oregon drives electric

July 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Here’s something new, albeit with limited appeal: the Arcimoto Pulse. It’s a bike-like electric three-wheeler going on sale later this year. Initial versions will have lead-acid batteries giving a range of only 40 miles, but lithium-ion models with 80- and 160-mile ranges will follow.

The Eugene-based company, exhibiting with the Drive Oregon collective at the Plug-In 2010 show in San Jose, California this week,  says it’s already taken 25 $500 deposits (Autoblog Green). Also at the Plug-In show: a wireless EV charging device; not entirely convincing as yet, but something that could solve the problems of recharging on-street or in places without a convenient socket.
