Arcimoto Begins Operations In New RAMP Manufacturing Facility

U.S. Congressman Peter Defazio, Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis, and Arcimoto Founder Mark Frohnmayer officially cut the ribbon on the RAMP, which has a target production capacity of 50,000 vehicles per year in 2025.

EUGENE, Ore., Feb. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of rightsized, outrageously fun, ultra-efficient electric vehicles for moving people and stuff, today cut the ribbon on the RAMP, a facility encompassing approximately 250,000 square feet under roof on more than 10 acres in Eugene, Oregon. More than five times as large as Arcimoto’s current manufacturing facilities, the RAMP will be instrumental in achieving mass production of Arcimoto’s ultra-efficient electric vehicles.

“We are driven to address the most pressing challenge facing all life on this pale blue dot we call home, and that extreme urgency impels the rapidly accelerating pace of innovation on full display today,” said Mark Frohnmayer, Arcimoto Founder and CEO. “That includes this new factory, as well as the introduction of leading core EV technology developments, product family enhancements, and the mandate to deliver true micro-mobility sustainable solutions to the world. Once at full capacity, the RAMP is expected to be capable of producing 50,000 vehicles per year, and further, provide a replicable template for global expansion.”

All vehicles built on the Arcimoto Platform, including the FUV, Deliverator, Roadster, Flatbed, and Rapid Responder, will be built on the same production line, which will yield a meaningful improvement in build throughput, the key goal of Phase 1 of the RAMP Expansion. Looking forward to Phase 2, Arcimoto intends to develop a new onsite logistics hub, construct the automated assembly line currently in development with Munro and Associates, and tool-up of key parts of the chassis and body that will enable maximum unit throughput in 2025, which will include working on the production of a robo-valet mass market commuter vehicle designed to be the most efficient driverless EV on the road.

“Today’s opening of Arcimoto’s new RAMP mass production facility heralds a new era in defossilized transportation right here in Eugene,” said Congressman Peter Defazio. “While the recently passed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide the first major investment in a national EV charging network to reduce carbon pollution in the transportation sector, Arcimoto’s mass-produced FUVs can help reduce individual carbon footprints right here, right now. Tackling the climate crisis will involve many different strategies. Arcimoto vehicles just happen to be the most fun.”
