Public Profile

Local Motors designs builds and sells vehicles. Defining itself as a 'disruptive company' - and the first to utilize Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM) - the effort is to redefine vehicle development by pairing micro-manufacturing with co-creation. The firm debuted the world’s first 3D-printed car, the Strati, in September 2014. The firm defines itself creating and delivering safe and accessible mobility solutions for local communities. Uutilizing its growing system of microfactories, rather than gigantic megafactories, the approach is to build small, just-in-time batches of vehicles through direct digital manufacturing, the process of using software to map, create, and edit designs. Local Motors makes its ideas bigbut its footprint small -- reducing the need for capital and decreasing its environmental impact. Open collaboration - for design and development of vehicles - and micro-manufacturing is dessigned to change the world of transportation. The firm operates a growing global network of microfactories. A global network of inspired innovators - ready to confront the world’s most formidable challenges - have achieved portfolio of vehicles to include Olli: the world's first cognitive, self-driving shuttle.
