Arcimoto To Exhibit Pure Electric Rapid Responder at the Wall Street Journal Future of Everything Festival

EUGENE, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The third vehicle built on the Arcimoto platform, the Rapid Responder will provide specialized emergency, security and law enforcement services at a fraction of the economical and ecological cost of traditional EMS vehicles.

Arcimoto, Inc.® (FUV) — makers of the Fun Utility Vehicle® (FUV®), Rapid Responder™, and Deliverator™ — affordable, practical, and joyful pure electric vehicles for everyday commuters and fleets, today announced that it will attend the Wall Street Journal Future of Everything Festival to exhibit the Rapid Responder emergency medical services prototype vehicle.

Festival attendees will be able to sit in the Rapid Responder and experience an immersive virtual reality EV drive through the Oregon countryside, filmed with the Vuze XR Camera from HumanEyes Technologies.

Hosted by top Journal editors, the Future of Everything Festival will take place May 20-23, 2019, in New York City, bringing together more than 90 leaders from across the fields of entertainment, business, and technology for a definitive look ahead at the groundbreaking innovations and ideas that are transforming the world.

“We believe smaller, faster, ultra-efficient electric vehicles are the future of emergency medical services, and we thank the Wall Street Journal for the opportunity to introduce our Rapid Responder to the leaders of tomorrow,” said Arcimoto Founder and President Mark Frohnmayer. “In congested cities around the world, ambulances and police are in a constant struggle to cut through traffic to arrive at emergency scenes as quickly as possible, and those precious minutes are all too often the difference between life and death. The Rapid Responder’s extraordinary efficiency will also help fleets meet their long term emissions goals, and reduce the maintenance and operations costs associated with more expensive, polluting, diesel-powered vans and trucks.”
