Building classy Electric Vehicles with a disruptive production model

Olympian Motors is a disruptive EV startup, building 'software-defined' Electric Vehicles with a unique 'fabless' production model. • Received 164 pre-orders for Olympian Model O1 ($15M+ pre-booked revenue) • Our unique Olympian Operating System (OOS) enables 'data privacy-first' architecture and minimalistic cockpit UX. • Rapid go-to-market: We have secured key partnerships to deliver the first Olympian O1 EVs to customers by Q4/2022. (It took 9+ years for Lucid and 11+ years for Rivian to make their first commercial shipment). • Disruptive, agile production model: Olympian established a unique fully 'fabless' production model in the U.S., running an asset-light operation with no CAPEX or no front R&D - unlike other conventional EV companies in the U.S. • We aim to change today’s commoditized car experience, elevate design and comfort standards, simplify over-complicated cockpit/UX, and create a new ‘experience-first’ consumer segment in the automotive. We prioritize: - Aesthetics and design over horsepower - Superior user experience over torque - Military-grade data privacy over top-speed - Edge computing over cloud computing - Minimalism over complicated cockpit - AR HUD over tablet display screens - Sustainable and recyclable materials over industrial plastic and toxic chemicals Electric. Aesthetic. Minimalistic. Refined.
