| DRIVEN (Design of Relevant and Innovative Vehicles for Energy Needs) Invites you to help choose winning vehicle designs and recipients of $15,000 in prizes – and a scale model of a new vehicle.
Phoenix, Ariz. – February 22, 2012 – On January 17, 2012 Local Motors in partnership with Shell's GameChanger team announced DRIVEN - Design of Relevant and Innovative Vehicles for Energy Needs – a competition seeking innovative transportation solutions to address mobility challenges on Local Motors' The Forge (http://www.forge.local-motors.com), an online, open co-creation forum. The challenge required the incorporation of locally available energy sources, construction materials and the consideration of local social issues with the intention of meeting current and future transportation needs.
A record-breaking 181 vehicle concepts were submitted into this contest from designers around the world – so many that we have decided to extend the voting deadline.
Now is your chance to vote and choose the top winning vehicle designs reflecting your vision of the future of mobility in each of 5 local areas including Amsterdam, Bangalore, Basra, Houston and Sao Paulo. Your vote will help determine the winner for each region, awarding $2,000 to each. Shell GameChanger will choose a Grand Prize Winner from among the 5 who will earn an additional $5,000 and will see his/her design made into a scale model to be shown around the world.
