Arc aims to become the market leader in electric recreational vehicles using patented battery monocoque technology as the foundation. Born out of Jaguar Land Rover’s White Space, their first vehicle is currently undergoing durability testing and final design in preparation for manufacture for sale
Arc aims to become the market leader in electric recreational vehicles – think Tesla entering the Polaris space. Starting by reinventing not only the motorcycle but also what it means to ride them, Arc is creating vehicles that challenge the environment whilst protecting it.
Electric vehicles are usually compromised due to battery weight and a high centre of gravity with the ride experience suffering from the lack of usual sensory cues. Arc’s new modular battery construction, whose background IP was derived and patented while incubating in JLR's Whitespace Innovation Team, aims to ensure that weight and package space can be optimised together – the perfect balance. The revolutionary human-machine interface technology will seek to re-connect the rider with the machine. Riding cues lost through the transition to electric intend to be given back to the rider via a bespoke jacket and helmet.
Since its pre-launch the Vector has drawn global interest with over 590 news articles covering its release across 55 countries plus over 130 sales inquiries in relation to the limited 399 units which we are planning to produce.
The original bike concept was incubated within Jaguar Land Rover’s White Space innovation arm, led by award-winning engineer Mark Truman. He subsequently founded Arc Vehicle with the goal of bringing the product to life and to develop the business into adjacent segments.
