Local Motors, a tech company based in Phoenix, Ariz., may have given us our first glimpse of the future of automobile manufacturing

The Strati takes about 44 hours to print, and is then outfitted with an electric car battery, motor and suspension from French automaker Renault, according to the Associated Press.

According to its creator, it has a life expectancy of at least half a decade: “If you left it outside in the harshest of elements, you’d have probably five to six years of use. If you garage it and you use it like you would use a normal car, then it will last for much longer. And it is fully recyclable. The Strati will be available this year at a cost of between 15.000 and 25.000 euros.
