Introducing LM3D. The 3D-printed car series from Local Motors.

Safe

We're Building Cars & Trust

Local Motors engineers and designers are working around the clock to develop a 3D-printed car that exceeds FMVSS standards by 2017.

Smart

Simply Intelligent

We've partnered with industry leading IoT companies to create a truly unique car ownership experience. From the retail lobby, to the factory floor, to the open road, we're making everything simpler and smarter.

Sustainable

From Art to Part

Post-production vehicle emissions are only half of the equation. Sustainable vehicle development utilizing DDM manufacturing techniques, at small-footprint Microfactories, separates Local Motors from the competition.

It's Never Been Done

Of course you will have questions. There is nothing conventional about this car, the way it's made, or the company behind it. Naturally, that will produce a lot of questions. We've tried to answer a bunch of them below.
