What does Altair supply to Elio Motors?
Altair is providing a majority of the engineering/development/design support and overall program management for Elio, as well as directing several of the product development teams.
Why did Elio choose Altair?
Paul and Hari were using Altair Software back when they were running ESG Engineering in Phoenix as an engineering/design consulting firm and were aware of Altair’s ProductDesign engineering/design consulting services as well (http://www.altair.com/CompanyStructure.aspx). As the idea that is Elio evolved over the years, Paul sought Altair out to help him grow the idea/vision into a product as well as leveraging our expertise in engineering/design/optimization, as well as the collective knowledge of our seasoned staff. It is our people and knowledge that sets us apart from others.
