Arcimoto, an EV OEM, and Faction Technology, a self-driving technology provider, have announced a strategic and joint investment agreement to scale driverless vehicle fleets.

The agreement is the latest step in a long-term partnership between the two companies. Through it, Faction’s DriveLink and TeleAssist technologies will be paired with Arcimoto platform vehicles, integrating vehicle-side AI driving capabilities with remote human teleoperation. The combined system offers a top speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) and a range exceeding 100 miles (160 km).

Faction’s technology can be applied to any variant of the Arcimoto vehicle, offering fleet managers in the logistics and transportation sectors a customizable, versatile, solution. By integrating their respective technologies, Arcimoto and Faction ultimately aim to offer an efficient, eco-friendly, and cost-effective system that supports urban mobility while providing customers with autonomous technologies.
