Arcimoto has partnered with HyreCar to provide a rental space for the Deliverator, Arcimoto’s three-wheel electric vehicle designed for local and last-mile delivery.
The Deliverator will be available for rent in Los Angeles this summer.
“Last month, roughly one-third of Americans ordered groceries online for the first time, and the need for both gig drivers and sustainable delivery vehicles is at an all-time high,” Joe Furnari, HyreCar CEO, said in a statement. “We’re happy to work with Arcimoto to begin providing access to Deliverator on our platform. This will give the growing number of delivery gig drivers access to the lowest per-mile-cost-to-operate delivery vehicle on the road, and it will enable fleet operators tied to the retail industry and small business owners the ability to leverage the Deliverator to profit from Mobility as a Service while reducing their carbon footprint.”
Hyrecar is using this opportunity to provide alternative vehicle solutions on its platform for last-mile food and package delivery in heavily populated areas that can benefit from this environmentally sensitive smaller footprint vehicle.
“The future of transportation will be powered by carsharing marketplace platforms like HyreCar, and we are thrilled to work together renting the Deliverator as we take our next step in building the future of sustainable home delivery,” Mark Frohnmayer, president and Founder of Arcimoto, said in a statement. “In the not too distant future, it will be unthinkable for a single person to own a vehicle, an expensive machine that sits parked 90% of the day. The HyreCar platform gives any driver access to fleets of small, shared vehicles that are more affordable to operate, reduce traffic and emissions, and free up space on the road. We see this as an incredible opportunity for gig drivers looking to save on operating costs, for small businesses who wish to rent out their vehicles when not in use, and for entrepreneurs looking to build an all-electric delivery fleet of their own.”
