    Chargers Make Unexpected Kicking Change

    Arcimoto Inc., which produces three-wheeled electric vehicles capable of carrying two people, said it plans to open a rental location, showroom and charging station at 630 10th Avenue in downtown San Diego.

    Oregon-based Arcimoto said it will join with San Diego-based HULA Holdings Inc. to open the facility in the coming months.

    Arcimoto calls its three-wheeled cycle an FUV, short for Fun Utility Vehicle. FUV is the company’s Nasdaq ticker symbol.

    The planned, 4,500-square-foot facility will contain 40 Level 2 chargers that can power electric bikes, scooters and cars in addition to the Arcimoto vehicles.

    “Even as a national leader in [electric vehicle] adoption, downtown San Diego still faces challenges in reducing congestion, lowering transportation emissions and improving parking,” said HULA co-founder Peder Norby in a statement issued by Arcimoto and HULA. “We believe the FUV Hub San Diego will allow us to attack these problems head-on.”
