Founded in 2007 to catalyze the shift to more sustainable transportation system, Arcimoto, Inc., Has devised new technologies and patterns of mobility that together raise the bar for environmental efficiency, footprint size, and price affordability in electric vehicle design. The word means future I drive, and the company has broken new ground in the transportation industry by establishing the Fun Utility Vehicle category for electric vehicles, following the introduction of Arcimotos first electric three-wheel FUV, which is currently available for preorder with a target purchase price of 11 900. Over the past decade, Arcimoto has focused R & D efforts at its Eugene, Ore., Headquarters and manufacturing facility on creating the most affordable and performance-pack electric vehicle suitable for daily driver. Early concept development was done by hand in a low-tech shop, and with limited design software. However, it was soon evident that competitive, mass producible product would require use of advanced engineering tools for design and analysis, say Mechanical Engineer / PDM Administrator Diana Standish. The Company operate without an official CAD system until 2011, Standish explains. While that effort certainly advanced early-generation concepts, it was difficult and time-consuming to work that way, especially as the design team grow. We need a CAD system to support visualization and simulation in lieu of heavy prototyping, and to help the US streamline development process ahead of manufacturing our first products. Although Arcimoto initially tried to design products using Rhino surfacing package, company soon realized that it needed a 3D solid modeling system with integrated Mechanical design, Electrical design, and engineering solutions. Arcimoto chose the SOLIDWORKS design platform because it is easy to use, includes robust sheet metal and weldment design capabilities, and provides access to a complete set of integrated solutions, such as analysis, product data management, and electrical design tools, Standish say. Following SOLIDWORKS Professional implemention, Autodesk offers Arcimoto its Inventor 3D design and Vault PDM systems free of charge for a limited period of time. After trying Autodesk tools for a few months, our engineers were virtually unanimous in wanting to remain with SOLIDWORKS because of progress we made using SOLIDWORKS, Standish recalls. We have since added SOLIDWORKS Premium design and analysis software, as well as SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematics Professional Electrical design, SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D Electrical design, and SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard product data management software. More than 98 percent of our first first products were designed with SOLIDWORKS.

Arcimoto is currently producing multiple products based on the same vehicle platform. All product variants offer 102 mixed-use miles of range from battery electric powertrain. The platform is divided into FUV for personal use, Rapid Responder for emergency services, and Deliverator for last-mile and local delivery. Future variations of platform have been announce, such as Cameo and flat-bed truck variants, but public information is still limit. Since the introduction of horseless carriages, cars have had four wheels, ability to hold multiple people, and carry multiple suitcases worth of cargo. Since then, the typical car has grown in size and ability while the needs of the average driver have largely the same. After 100 years of vehicle development and use, Arcimoto takes a step back to reassess what is needed from average driver in the 20th century. Their three-wheel platform is the answer to aWhat is the most effective ground-base transportation platform to build based on the most common use cases? FUV currently weighs in at 1 300 pounds but the team is working towards a goal of 1 100 pounds. While working with various experts including Munro & Associates, they have already reduced weight by roughly 50 pounds with generative manufacturing applied to steering knuckles, accelerator pedal, and control arms. All of these advancements reduce production and logistics complexity, thereby reducing cost. This is one of the advancements that will enable low cost FUV for consumers. Cool seats are on the drawing board and will act as the primary cooling system for occupants. All Arcimotos use switch reluctance internal permanent magnet machine motors which are purchased off the shelf. Motor controllers and battery cells are also purchased off the shelf. However, two stage reduction gearbox is being designed and manufactured in house. The vehicle also sports two single speed parallel gear trains on the same gearbox chassis with 7: 1 gear reduction. Arcimoto Manufacturing Plant is Arcimotoas sole production facility in 2020. The company begin leasing building on October 1 2017. Arcimoto held a grand opening ceremony on November 29 2017 where Mark reflected on progress made over eight generations of their vehicle platform. Upon building out interior with equipment capable of producing up to 5 000 units per year, they begin production on September 19 2019. As companies refine their manufacturing processes and product platform, AMP will act as a template for future AMPs. Subsequent AMPs will support 50 000 to 100 000 units per year. Except for east coast AMP in the US, new AMPs will be built as joint ventures. The company plans to have local production capacity in Europe, Southeast Asia, and another, undetermined location. Currently, Arcimoto is utilizing Farasis Energy, Chinese-base battery cell supplier. Farasis will add additional production capacity in the United States and Europe. 25 this will enable lower costs for Arcimoto, reduce lead time, and decrease the likelihood of logistical delays concerning physical distance and political climate between US and China.

SHEDDING WEIGHT, REDUCING PROTOTYPING

Arcimotos decision to redesign its vehicle chassis using multibody sheet-metal parts, and its designers ' use of SOLIDWORKS sheet metal modeling capabililties to thoroughly redesign the chassis, allow company to reduce the weight of its design by roughly 40 percent compared to early generations of design. Reducing weight is the overarching objective, and SOLIDWORKS tools have helped the US reduce the weight of earlier vehicle generations from 1 800 pounds to 1 100 pounds, Standish say. With the addition of SOLIDWORKS Premium software, Arcimoto is hoping to leverage simulation tools during design to minimize prototyping cycles for future models while simultaneously improving performance.
