Environmental impact

Open Motors brings a better solution for eco-friendly mobility because:

it’s electric

Yes, like Tesla Model S or X or 3 and Nissan Leaf we are 100% electric. It means that we enable new brands to make their own EV brand easier and introduce new 100% electric vehicles in the market, easy to adapt to standards available in local charging systems.
That’s easy and we made it even easier, to everyone.

it is NOT designed & engineered for the dump

Let’s face the truth: making 100% electric vehicles is not the only key to save the planet. It’s just the first step.
The bigger problem is what happen once you’re vehicle ended its life cycle.
The problem is that most of the vehicles are designed and engineered for the dump.
These are shocking images just throw vehicles in car graveyards like this and try to postpone this problem. (source: Daily Mail)

We can’t afford this anymore.
Thankfully we solved this problem: our vehicles are modular, which means that they’re replaceable and upgraded-able, which means Ultra longer lifetime.

it’s perfect for eco-friendly services

In Smart Cities we are shifting from ownership to the access of the vehicles: new generations prefer to own a super cool smartphone and get a car with one tap. Think about Uber, Lyft, Bla Bla Car and local Car Sharing Apps like Car2Go, Enjoy.
Owning a car in Europe means that 92%  of time is parked while you’re paying (tax, insurance, rent, etc…) and while other drivers are pissing off to find a parking slot.
Car sharing, Uber fleets car has a way higher usage of vehicles and after 5 years average you need to change the complete fleet, which means huge investments literally gone and more vehicles in the car graveyards.
We solved this as well: because our platforms and vehicles are modular and you can replace and upgrade components even the electric motor. That’s what we call Ultra low impact
