Regarding the FUVs R&D initial target $11,900 compared to the $19,900 production rollout. Lower pricing can only be accomplished with production scale efforts.............and having all of your parts suppliers on board.
The Kitefin concept from Acrimoto might have been interesting.
But from the comments with it, not a low cost vehicle. It is possibly a vaporware idea, conceived with cliche points such as autonomous driving and half-space parking. So, not very fine for me personally, as my interest is in cheap distance commuting, so more power, more range and bigger wheel base than this is required. But I like the style and packaging.
On Pillissippi campus today. Electric car demonstration. Was a nice turnout. Offered small test drives. Telsa, chevrolet bolt, volt, . Fisker, nissan leaf, electric bikes, motorcycles. Polestar 2 . Asked last week if Elio was invited, that drew up a long conversation, seveal of them
I knew most of what was being shown. It was educational, to actually put hands on and see the vehicles. The swincar is right sized to fit in my camper's toy hauling section. Max speed is 40 mph. The acrimoto has handle bars for steering, The instructor said helmets are required in Tennessee. I asked her to double check that statement
