USA: Oregon’s electric vehicle industry revving up

Oregonians love to buy local, but no Oregon company has managed to bring a mass-produced electric car to market.

That may change this year, if Arcimoto founder Mark Frohnmayer gets his way.

Since 2007, Eugene-based Arcimoto has been working up prototypes of a three-wheeled electric car that looks a bit like a tadpole riding on three wheels. This year, the sixthprototypehits the streets, and if it performs as expected, Arcimoto will “green light” the first mini-wave of mass production: a 15-car pilot fleet.

Nine of them have already been sold.
