Arcimoto SRK – Click above to watch video after the jump

If you've heard about Arcimoto, an electric vehicle start-up, and have been wondering what's up with the company and their three-wheeled product, wonder no more. Translogic has tracked the company down, taken a fifth-generation prototype – the SRK – for a ride and made one of their fancy-pants videos that fills you in on everything you need to know.

Just in case you don't have five minutes to spare, here's the meat and potatoes of this front-wheel-drive, tomato-colored trike's story: it has a 40-mile range with a 65 mile per hour top speed. Batteries are lead acid (to keep the price affordable at $17,500), though lithium packs are also available that will double that range. The company website also mentions a 180-mile touring pack possibility. Charging takes six hours at 110 volts but only two at 220 volts. It's zippy with a zero-to-sixty of 9.8 seconds and can carry two people.

The company will have several, more weather-resistant variations available when they begin production. Unfortunately, no date for deliveries is mentioned, which leads us to believe they are still seeking investment capital. We wish them good luck with that (in a non-ironic sort of way) and hope it isn't long before we hear some good news. In the meantime, come with us past the break for a big yummy video taste of their three-wheeled dream.
