Global-E Approach to Automotive Design Philosophy

The automotive industry does not exactly conjure up images of philosophy in the minds of most observers.  Indeed, one suspects that philosophy – save automotive design philosophy, is the furthest thing from the immediate thoughts of those most passionate about the future of the automobile in America.  Despite the stereotype that design firms in the automotive industry must all be made-up of passionate, but clinical engineers, nothing could be further from the truth, at least as far as Team Global-E is concerned. 

Here at Global-E, our approach to automotive design philosophy does not stop with considerations of miles per gallon or gear ratios.  Instead, we prefer to take a holistic approach, making design decisions based on sustainability, energy independence, and a deep concern for the future of our planet.  You see, Team Global-E isn’t just passionate about horsepower, but about peoplepower.  We realize that if the Earth is not clean and safe, the automotive consumer will have much more pressing matters on his hands than buying the latest automobile.  Of course, we alone cannot save the planet, but we can do our fair share to help preserve it for our children and our children’s children.  One of the ways that we do that is to balance our concerns for automotive performance with our concerns for the welfare of the environment. 

Our philosophy begins with respect; respect for each other, respect for our competitors, and respect for our planet.  We are not driven by the “bottom line,” but by a real sense of urgency about the condition of both the American automotive industry and about our environment.  We acknowledge our responsibility as a member of the worldwide corporate community and we urge others to do the same.  Our commitment to excellence extends from the highest ranks of the Team’s management to the members of our staff.  From top to bottom, left to right we are dedicated to the virtues of responsibility, environmental stewardship, hard-work, and a genuine concern for the American motorist.  Our engineers may design our cars, but each and every one of us builds our Team.

How else should the philosophy be approached?

    I’m not sure there is a better basis for the philosophy of doing business. These seam to be the same desires of society every time we hear of bad corporations not adhering to ethics, morals and common decency. Please stay on target with those ideals.
