Local Motors, subsidiary of LM Industries Inc., the world’s first digital manufacturer with a focus on mobility products, today announced Vikrant Aggarwal as company president. He brings with him more than 20 years of automotive and industrial experience, managing and growing successful global businesses. His expertise will be critical in achieving the company’s worldwide expansion and customer-focused goals. Prior to Local Motors, Aggarwal was the executive director of digital accelerator at Cummins Inc., a Fortune 500 corporation that designs, manufactures, and distributes engines, filtration, and power generation products.

“Local Motors by LMI is a burgeoning industry leader, scaling the deployment of mobility products across international markets. I am excited to be joining at this critical moment as Olli 2.0, the next generation of connected, bespoke mobility goes into production,” said Vikrant Aggarwal. “I firmly believe in the company’s unique approach and business model and look forward to bringing Olli to roads near and far.”

Aggarwal previously led a mobility-focused team at the Innovation Incubator at Cummins, Inc. developing new cutting-edge technology for powertrains and mobility solutions products.

The market for mobility solutions is massive. Local Motors’ flagship product, Olli, an autonomous, connected, and electric shuttle, is being deployed worldwide through direct sales and via Olli Fleet Challenges. Aggarwal’s extensive global experience – both living in and working with companies around the world – will help accelerate Local Motors’ expansion as it scales in markets across the globe.
