Local factories. Local Employment.
Low capital cost.

 
 

A UNIQUE SCENARIO

Manufacture.

 
 

Air Future embraces the MDI concept of numerous small production facilities. 

A fresh concept in Manufacturing with multiple advantages

The MDI innovative production concept enables small manufacturing plants to be spread across the globe enabling the integration of functions and research. 

  • 80% of the vehicle is built in situ. 
  • A central purchasing office for the suppliers of the remaining 20%. 
  • Generated wealth can remain in the producing country. 
  • A larger locally based workforce sharing in the revenue Lower logistics levels and management costs through micro factories. 
  • Smaller areas occupied by the smaller factory building and overall reduced land size required. 
  • Lower CO2 emissions and pollution emissions caused by the transport of finished vehicles and raw materials.

Air Future’s licence area: AirPod 2.0, AirOne, AirCity, Energy and Energy Storage. 

We are planning for a number of factories, distributed throughout our licence area of New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands. 

Air Future’s, manufacture will be distributed via local small turnkey factories employing local people and business services. This creates a low capital cost, lower risk, and high profitability without subsidies. 

 
 
 
 

Our factories - the MDI concept

The opposite of the classic approach to car manufacturing and its centralisation of vast production factories. 

Factories are small with a full factory building of 4,500 square metres. Total land requirement is approximately 15,000 square metres. The factories are turnkey (readily installed as a package). 

These production facilities can be built at a realistic price and are profitable very early following the start-up phase due to the advanced technology used.

By providing employment and enabling local supply of services, local manufacture becomes both politicallyand economically attractive. So the only consideration becomes sales, and that’s not difficult to establish in advance. 

Our vehicles will be produced in smaller units in an approximately 5,000 square metre building producing 5,200 vehicles per year on one 8 hour shift per day.
