Local Motors announced this week that they will be releasing two 3-D printed cars models for sale next year. The startup based out of Phoenix, is credited for creating the world's first 3-D printed car in September-- not to be confused with the first 3-D printed supercar the Blade.
The design for the vehicle named ReLoad Redacted was submitted to Local Motors' Project Redacted Challenge by Kevin Lo. It boasts a "flexible foundation that can support many different styles and technology options", according to the contest press release. The ReLoad will come in two models: the Swim and the Sport. Lo's creations were deemed supreme through a voting process that utilized the Local Motors community and a panel of judges including SEMA Vice President of Vehicle Technology John Waraniak and Jay Leno.
According to Local Motors, the ReLoad Redacted will operate on a battery and fall between $18,000 and $30,000, though the final sale price has not yet been released. These vehicles are not yet highway legal, however. That giant leap into the mainstream auto industry is projected to occur by the end of 2016, as reported by Fox News. ReLoad Redacted is on pace, though, to make its worldwide debut in November 2015 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
