The FUV (Fun Utility Vehicle), made by Arcimoto in 2022, was a big deal in the world of green transportation. The FUV was the right mix of fun, usefulness, and concern for the environment. This three-wheeled electric car had a small, future look that caught people’s attention wherever it went.

It was easy to drive in the city because it was quick and agile, and it was also easy to park because it was small. The FUV was powered by a strong electric motor, which made it a clean way to get around without sacrificing speed. The FUV was great for short trips and regular commutes because it could go up to 100 miles on a single charge. The car also had advanced safety features like a strengthened roll cage, seatbelts, and a stability control system to make sure that its passengers were as safe as possible. The FUV was a big step forward for sustainable transportation because it was a fun and useful option to traditional cars that was also easy on the environment.

High Voltage Safety Information

DANGER: Exposure to high voltage can cause shock, burns, and even death. The high-voltage components in the vehicle can only be serviced by Arcimoto authorized service technicians. High-voltage components are identified by labels. Do not remove, open, take apart, or modify these components. High voltage cable or wiring has orange covering or labels. Do not touch, probe, tamper with, cut, or modify high-voltage cables or wiring. This vehicle has two non-serviceable high-voltage battery modules and a standard 12V battery. If the FUV is in a crash, the sensing system may shut down the high voltage system. When this occurs, the high-voltage battery modules are disconnected and the vehicle will not start. A system warning message is shown on the Display. Before the vehicle can be operated again, it must be serviced by a trained Arcimoto technician. Damage to the high-voltage battery modules or high-voltage system can create a risk of electric shock, overheating, or fire. If the FUV is damaged from a moderate to severe crash, flood, fire, or other event, the vehicle should be inspected as soon as possible. Until the vehicle has been inspected, store it outside at least 50 ft (15 m) from any structure or flammable objects.
Contact Arcimoto Product Support at (541) 780-0032 as soon as possible to determine whether an inspection is needed. Only a trained Arcimoto service technician with the proper knowledge and tools should inspect, test, or replace the high voltage battery modules.

Contact Arcimoto Product Support at (541) 780-0032 if the high voltage battery modules or 12V battery needs service.

Electrical System

There are no user-serviceable parts inside the FUV. Do not attempt to access internal components under any circumstance. If you remove components from the FUV or attempt to modify or repair any parts on the FUV, you may put yourself in danger and void the FUV’s warranty.
If you ever have any questions or concerns regarding the electrical system in your FUV, contact Arcimoto Product Support at (541) 780-0032.

DO NOT modify components in the FUV’s electrical traction system or touch damaged components – doing so may result in serious injury or death. Note that the components in the FUV’s electrical traction system may be damaged in an accident, although the damage is not visible. Disassembling, removing or replacing electrical components, cables or connectors can cause severe burns or electric shock that may result in serious injury or death. Cables that carry a potential arc-flash risk are colored orange for easy identification. There is a risk of fatal injury.

Two non- serviceable high voltage battery modules are located within the Battery Bay (in the lower portion of the chassis). These battery modules require no owner maintenance and have no parts that an owner or a non-Acimoto authorized service technician can service.

DANGER: DO NOT open the Battery Bay or touch the Battery Modules or any internal components. Doing so exposes you to potential arc-flash risk, and electrocution, and voids the warranty.
There is a risk of fatal injury. The FUV also uses a standard 12V battery. If you ever have any questions or concerns regarding the Batteries in your FUV, contact Arcimoto Product Support at (541) 780-0032.

Battery Management System (BMS)
The FUV uses a Battery Management System (BMS) to monitor the condition of the HV Batteries and optimize Battery performance, range, and life. The BMS safeguards the HV Batteries by means of safety interlocks. These interlocks turn off or control certain operations that could damage the power pack. The BMS also monitors the HV Batteries for a host of predefined conditions and then takes appropriate action.

Front Access Panel
The Front Access Panel can be removed to access the windshield wiper fluid remote fill neck However, be aware that there are several high-voltage components behind the Front Access Panel. These include inverters and high-voltage cables and connectors. All high-voltage components are protected by a plastic safety screen. However, it is important to exercise caution any time the Front Access Panel is removed.
