An open-source car is a car with open design—designed as open-source hardware, using open-source principles.


Open-source cars include:

Self-driving car prototypes have collected petabytes of data. Some companies -- including Daimler, Baidu, Aptiv, Lyft, Waymo, Argo, Ford, and Audi -- have publicly released datasets under more-or-less open licenses.[8]

Other open-source vehicles[edit]

Velomobiles are vehicles similar in some ways, but are technically not automobiles.

Open-source velomobiles include:

the PUUNK velomobile,[9] the Hypertrike velomobile,[10] the evovelo mö velomobile,[11][12] the Atomic Duck velomobile,[13]

Other open-source vehicles include the Xtracycle.
