Arcimoto has partnered with HyreCar platform, the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and delivery, to lease its three-wheeled Deliverator, ultra-efficient, electric vehicle designed for local and last-mile delivery. Already this summer, the opportunity to rent a Deliverator through HyreCar will be available to consumers in Los Angeles.
Arcimoto’s Deliverator electric tricycle is offered as a delivery van with a range of 102 miles (164 km) in urban conditions, a maximum speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) and the ability to charge from a city power outlet. It features a cargo box to the rear that has a carrying capacity of 20 cubic feet. Besides, its right-sized footprint allows three vehicles to be parked in a single space.
“Last month, roughly one-third of Americans ordered groceries online for the first time, and the need for both gig drivers and sustainable delivery vehicles is at an all-time high,” said Joe Furnari, HyreCar Chief Executive Officer. “We’re happy to work with Arcimoto to begin providing access to Deliverator on our platform. This will give the growing number of delivery gig drivers access to the lowest per-mile-cost-to-operate delivery vehicle on the road, and it will enable fleet operators tied to the retail industry and small business owners the ability to leverage the Deliverator to profit from Mobility as a Service while reducing their carbon footprint.”
Mark Frohnmayer, President and Founder of Arcimoto, in the future, car rental platforms will dominate and save consumers from having their own car, which will be ideal in the parking lot. The rental platforms for different types of cars will provide any driver with access to vehicles if necessary, thereby reducing traffic and emissions, as well as freeing up space on the road. In addition, this will save drivers from operating costs, and small enterprises will have the opportunity to rent out their vehicles when not in use.
