Arcimoto, Inc.® and HyreCar , the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and delivery, announced that the Deliverator, Arcimoto’s ultra-efficient, three-wheel electric vehicle designed for local and last-mile delivery, will be available to rent using the HyreCar platform beginning this summer in Los Angeles.
Joe Furnari, HyreCar Chief Executive Officer commented that, last month, roughly one-third of Americans had ordered groceries online for the first time, and the need for both gig drivers and sustainable delivery vehicles was at an all-time high. They were happy to work with Arcimoto to begin providing access to Deliverator on their platform. Which would give the growing number of delivery gig drivers access to the lowest per-mile-cost-to-operate delivery vehicle on the road, and it would enable fleet operators tied to the retail industry and small business owners the ability to leverage the Deliverator to profit from Mobility as a Service while reducing their carbon footprint.
Hyrecar is using this opportunity to provide alternative vehicle solutions on its platform for last-mile food and package delivery in heavily populated areas that can benefit from this environmentally sensitive smaller footprint vehicle.
Mark Frohnmayer, President and Founder of Arcimoto stated that, they were thrilled to work together with HyreCar to bring the Deliverator to gig drivers for sustainable home delivery.The HyreCar platform created a win-win for vehicle owners and working drivers to monetize vehicles that would otherwise sit parked 90 percent of the day. They saw this as an incredible opportunity for gig drivers looking to save on operating costs, for small businesses who wished to rent out their vehicles when not in use, and for entrepreneurs looking to build all-electric delivery fleets of their own.
Built on the modular Arcimoto Platform, the Deliverator features a top speed of 75 mph, 102 city mile range, 20+ cubic feet of cargo space, and its right-sized footprint allows three vehicles to be parked in a single space.
