    Rick, different people like different things. For the price of an Arcimoto and an Electrameccanica, a person could buy a Spyder, Venice, or Slingshot, and still have money left over. They would have a real vehicle, already in production, that has far better performance, range, and functionality.

    Messing up big time? Who knows? They're only, what, 5-6 years behind schedule. They still haven't delivered your trike, even with a $5k surcharge. "You can have your vehicle, but without any doors." doesn't sound like getting things done. Compared to the specs on the Carver, which started your Fly the Road dream, the fuv seems like a compromise, rather than a fulfillment of that dream. As long as you're happy waiting, and are happy if/when it finally shows up, I'm good with that.

    Samuel, I agree, drive what you like, like what you drive. Pulling out of the production Queue and waiting is a choice I made for personal reasons. No compromise on my long time interest in three wheelers based on the FUV’s performance, handling, and fun factor beyond the tilt. My choice of vehicle platform compromises in life these days would only be due to old age. My primary requirements are easy ingress/egress, driver comfort, and a quick and nimble 0-60mph. I’m happy knowing I can call Team Arcimoto and have my FUV #19 delivered when I’m good and ready. The majority of my ride time around the lakes will be doors off open air. Thanks, but who compromised is Carver with their new <$10K top speed around 30mph Carver. :)

    I have just seen some info and videos on a new 3 wheeler EV called the Nobe 100. Looks promising if they can get it to production.

    My Nobe. I think it is a retro design that I like.
