Arcimoto Electric Vehicle Wants to Take on Tesla
Jan. 8 -- The Arcimoto Generation 8 SRK is completely electric and can travel up to 80 miles per hour, going from zero to 60 in seven and a half seconds. It takes a few hours to juice up and you can get up to 70 miles on a single charge, with an upgrade in the works that will nearly double it to 130 miles. It's already fully street legal across the United States and is considered a motorcycle (in most states, this won't require a separate license, though it does vary). Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle got a first look at the 8th Generation SRK and took it for a cruise around Las Vegas.
