Comments Off on The 3D-Printed Urbee 2 Hybrid Car is Light, Strong, and Nearing Production

Nothing says “Welcome to the Future” like a 3D-printed runabout vehicle with a hybrid engine, three wheels, speeds of up to 110 mph, and capacity to carry up to 1,200 lbs. The Urbee 2 is the result of Jim Kor’s dream for a modern, sustainable vehicle that will someday revolutionize the way that we commute. The exterior’s lightweight construction of ABS plastic allows for a minimum amount of drag and fuel required to operate the car, and it’s stronger and more easily manipulated than steel. Able to hold two passengers, the Urbee  could very well be the next big thing in urban transportation .

Commissioned by The Co-operative Food to commemorate their 10th anniversary of converting all of their coffee to fair trade, the truck set a Guinness World Record today for the highest speed ever attained by a java-powered vehicle, clocking in at 65mph.
