WHAT DRIVES GROUNDED?
We believe the world would be a better place if people had the freedom and self-reliance to live, work and explore anywhere, sustainably integrated within nature. That's why we're leading the electric revolution of recreational vehicles to allow people to get closer to nature without harming it.
WHO IS GROUNDED?
We're a team made up of engineers, designers, architects, ex-founders, and more. We assembled from around the world with the common goal of creating amazing products that will enable people to explore more without harming the planet.
WHERE IS GROUNDED?
DETROIT INNOVATION DISTRICT
We were invited to work out of the Newlab manufacturing coworking space at Michigan Central, that is sponsored by Ford. We think Detroit is having a resurgence, and is the place to be for mobility-defining companies.
Every morning and night on our walk to and from work we get a glimpse of our neighbor, the beautiful century-old Michigan Central train station now being fully restored to its former glory.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
We formed the company in 2022, and wanted to get started before the building construction was completed. So by our own volition, for a few weeks, we worked out of a parking lot in the Michigan cold. After scoring some sympathy points, we were able to move to a heated tent, where we worked for a few more weeks until we were able to move into the beautiful finished Newlab/Ford building. If that’s not dedication, we don’t know what is.
