Arcimoto SRK release Party
With an estimated 500 attendees, the Arcimoto release of their next generation electric vehicle the SRK (codename Red 5) was more like a rave than a Eugene business event. Lighting, pulsing techno music, a scrim giving a glimpse of the silhouette of the SRK like a belly dancer behind a screen, food, beer & wine, if you missed it you missed a party. In attendance were some high profile supporters of Arcimoto’s mission including Mayor Kitty Piercy and “Castle” stars (and long time Arcimoto supporters) Nathan Fillian and Jon Huertas. As part of their announcement, CEO Mark Frohnmayer announced Arcimoto’s all access program for the SRK: Instead of pre-paying for an SRK to get a place in line, a $100 deposit will do it.
