Local Motors is a ground mobility company focused on shaping the future for the better. Founded in 2007 with a belief in open collaboration and co-creation, Local Motors began low volume vehicle manufacturing of open-source designs using multiple micro-factories. Since inception, Local Motors has debuted the World’s first co-created vehicle, the World’s first 3D-printed car and the World’s first self-driving, cognitive, electric vehicle, Olli. Local Motors believes that Olli is the answer to a sustainable, accessible transportation solution for all.
We combine co-creation and micro-manufacturing to bring hardware innovations to market at unprecedented speed.
