UrmO: Your ultra-light, foldable urban electric vehicle

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Risks and challenges

Despite our detailed planning, developing and manufacturing a high-tech product is a great challenge, as you can imagine. That is why we have worked unremittingly for the last two and a half years and will continue to work this way. Also, we are partnering with world renowned parts suppliers including tier one automotive OEMs in order to reduce production risks to a minimum. We love our vehicle and we think that everybody should get the chance to ride the UrmO.

We have already built several prototypes, to prove the technology and to be able to evaluate parts suppliers. The final product will be assembled by a contract manufacturer under our supervision. The ramp-up of the production for a new product requires a lot of attention to details. Tolerances may need to be adjusted or tools may need a redesign. These changes will become necessary during the planned sampling phase when we receive the first vehicles from serial production. These changes contain the potential to delay the production and delivery in the order of weeks to months. Of course, these are regular challenges of manufacturing a new hardware product. There can be unforeseen issues leading to delays, but we promise to do everything in our power to reduce the impact of such events as much as possible.

Most importantly, our priority is to be fully transparent in our communication to you, our backers. We only have one interest: delivering our urban electric vehicle in a timely manner and in the best quality.
