EUGENE, Ore., March 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arcimoto, Inc.® (NASDAQ: FUV), makers of rightsized, outrageously fun, ultra-efficient electric vehicles for moving people and stuff, today announced that drivers of Arcimoto Fun Utility Vehicles in Utah will no longer need to have a motorcycle endorsement under legislation signed by Governor Spencer Cox. The bill, HB391, sponsored by Representative Kay Christofferson and Senator Wayne Harper, brings Utah in line with other states that do not require a motorcycle license to operate an autocycle such as those built by Arcimoto.
“Utah needs to remain vigilant in our efforts to address the constant innovation of new transportation platforms and make sure our laws and regulations are not hindering the introduction of new products, especially American-made products,” said Representative Christofferson, Chair of the House Transportation Committee.
“We’ve had some epic rides through the National Parks of Utah, and it is truly one of the most spectacular states in the nation to explore from the cockpit of an Arcimoto vehicle,” said Mark Frohnmayer, CEO and Founder of Arcimoto. “We applaud Governor Cox, Representative Christofferson, and Senator Harper for passing this forward-thinking legislation which will give the citizens of Utah access to new clean transportation vehicles that are made right here in the U.S.”
