The First Fuel-Efficient 3D Printed Car is Back on the Map

It’s been about 3 years since we announced the collaboration with KOR Ecologic to prototype Urbee 2, the first road-ready, fuel-efficient car built using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing technology. After several years of R&D, KOR Ecologic is getting closer to being able to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by traveling from San Francisco to New York on only 10 liters of ethanol. Weighing in at only 1,200 lbs. and containing a hybrid 10-horsepower engine, Urbee 2 is the “urban vehicle of the future” and hopes to become the “greenest car on earth”. In order to achieve its goal, KOR Ecologic is crowdfunding to verify Urbee 2 and start its journey across the country.
