Arcimoto PulseEnlarge Photo
On Sep. 23, 2009, Arcimoto, of Eugene, Oregon, debuted a 3 wheel electric vehicle called Pulse. The Pulse seats two, has a range of 50 - 100 miles and a top speed of 55 mph and an estimated price below $20,000. For $500, you can reserve your place to order one of three hundred vehicles to be built in the first year's production, with deliveries commencing in early 2011. At the time of this posting, 10 are already reserved.
While the vehicle does resemble the Aptera 2e's configuration, at a starting price of $25,000, the Aptera 2e provides a range of 120 miles and a top speed of over 85 pmh. These vehicles may provide a great comparison for the true cost of range and speed in EV's.
