Faction

Driverless electric vehicles at a fraction of the cost of a car.

Faction develops driverless vehicles that have the speed and performance of cars, but at the cost of a motorcycle. We do driverless combined with remote human supervision, so we’re not gated by waiting for 100% autonomous technology. Initially we’re focusing on micro delivery and vehicle-on-demand, where you can summon a vehicle and drive it yourself. Faction prototypes are in operation now and we're preparing for on-road trials in Fall 2021.
