First electric road car body produced with a 3D printer
A prototype for an electric vehicle -- code named Urbee -- is the first to have its entire body built with a 3D printer. Stratasys and Winnipeg engineering group Kor Ecologic have partnered to create the electric/liquid fuel hybrid, which can deliver more than 200 miles per gallon on the motorway and 100 miles per gallon in the city. The two-passenger hybrid aims to be fuel efficient, easy to repair, safe to drive and inexpensive to own....

"Urbee was designed with environmentally sustainable principles dictating every step of its design."
