Society for Sustainable Mobility
= organization behind the Open Source Green Vehicle
"The Society for Sustainable Mobility (SSM) is a revolutionary movement to develop a much needed alternative to conventional automobiles.
The Mission of the Society for Sustainable Mobility (SSM) is to create a three-part solution to our dependency on natural resources:
1. Sustainable Technologies: to improve the energy efficiency of automobiles;
2. Open-design Infrastructure: To accelerate sustainable technologies into the marketplace and to harness help from great minds around the world;
3. Business Strategy: to commercialize our products and bring them to the hands of consumers.
The SSM-OSGV goal is to engage in fair market competition in the most polluting automotive market segments with functionally superior products that are cleaner and more affordable; thus, erode the incentives for major automakers to remain in these segments and encourage them to invest more in future technologies."
