The process

The Local Motors' process begins with members of their open, online community submitting vehicle designs for review by other members. Then the community votes to select the best design. Winning concepts are further developed through co-creation, a process that combines the professional Local Motors' team with the online community. During co-creation, everything from the vehicle's body to its engine and components are chosen. This means the company can focus on producing cars that have already been proven popular by winning a contest.

Development of the Rally Fighter was made more efficient by the use of off-the-shelf parts from companies like BMW, Mazda and Ford. This allows owners to customize their cars, and it makes replacement parts easy to acquire.

After a design is finalized, a micro-factory is established to produce the cars one at a time.These factories create local jobs, generate less waste and allow for further customization. Car buyers spend two three-day weekends at the factory helping to build their own cars as part of a "build experience."

The small size of Local Motors doesn't pose a direct challenge to large automakers, but it does give drivers an option.

生产流程

本地汽车的生产流程,一开始由开放的线上社群会员提交汽车设计,并且经过其他会员评审。接下来,社群会员投票选出最佳设计。获选的设计概念会进一步透过共同创造继续研发,亦即由本地汽车的专业团队与线上社群成员一起合作。在共同创造的过程中,会选定汽车的主体、引擎、零件等所有相关事物。这表示公司能专注于制造汽车,毕竟汽车款式已经从比赛中脱颖而出,证明早已获得大家的喜爱。

赛车斗士使用宝马、马自达、福特等车厂的现成零件,使研发过程更有效率, 车主因此能定制自己的汽车,更换的零件也容易买到。

一旦设计完成,就会成立一间微型工厂,一次生产一辆车。工厂为当地带来工作机会,产生的废弃物较少,还能提供进一步的定制服务。汽车买主会利用两个周末分别来工厂三天,协助制造自己的汽车,好亲身感受一下「制造经验」。

本地汽车规模小,对汽车大厂并不会带来直接影响,然而确实让汽车驾驶多了一种选择。
