Aptera, manufacturer of electric vehicles, recently announced that it will open a production facility in North County, San Diego. The company has chosen Ware Malcomb to design the new facility, which will produce automobiles that deliver the equivalent of more than 200 miles per gallon.

Aptera Motors, which was founded four years ago, develops and builds the most energy-efficient commuter vehicles in the world. The company uses streamlined aerodynamic design, lightweight composition structures and a unique driving system to deliver cars that are affordable and safe.

Ware Malcomb is a design firm that creates architectural, interior design and graphic design plans, as well as site development for clients internationally. Their services include the design of commercial offices, industrial, technology, healthcare, retail, auto dealerships, public/institutional and educational facilities, as well as renovation projects.

The firm will be providing architectural and interior design services for Aptera's proposed 200,000 square-foot corporate headquarters. The project will include a redevelopment of the site to accommodate a 270-stall lot for final product parking, a total of 200 stalls for employee parking and an outdoor break area, all of which will be spread over six acres.

The new facility is expected to have 45,000 square feet of office space, 12,000 square feet of research and development labs with product testing areas, 140,000 square feet of assembly and product staging and a 3,000 square-foot multipurpose room.

Ware Malcomb has 11 office locations throughout the U.S., Canada and Panama.
