About Local Motors

Local Motors - LogoLocal Motors is a new car company whose goal is to bring to market lightweight and efficient cars through an innovative local assembly and retail experience.

Their intent is to build a national network of local units each capable of manufacturing, sales, and service.

The individual units will be supplied by a global "value network" of integrated suppliers of parts and sub-assemblies.

The units will be linked to a small headquarters providing support for process migration, design commonality and purchasing functions.

Design style, customer research, career opportunities and demand will be driven by a virtual community, which enables styling and features to match unmet customer requirements while enabling all designers to prove their ability to design a car worthy of production.

The target set for the new lightweight vehicles is to be the most efficient per class, initially using conventional internal combustion engine technology.
