Risks and challenges

We have already finished our Lugga prototype, but moving to the production phase requires a lot of money and scale. We need your help to finance the necessary tools. We have spent more than two years working on all the details of this project, and we are very excited to make it a reality and deliver to all your Lugga One.

We know that embarking on mass production is not easy, and less for a product that does not exist in the world, such as Lugga. That's why we created a strategic alliance with a company with more than 25 years of experience in the world-class automotive industry. We also created strong ties with our suppliers of components necessary for the manufacture of the product, who collaborated significantly in the manufacture of the prototypes.

To start mass production we need to finalize the tools to manufacture the different parts of the product. This is a process that requires a lot of time and money, that is why we created a detailed plan that contemplates setbacks, which will allow us to do it without problems and deliver on time.

If we talk about the shipments, we have partnered with one of the largest logistics companies in the world, which advised us and will take care that all our sponsors have their Lugga in a timely manner.

We know that we have many challenges and inconveniences that will arise along the way, but we are sure that we have the ideal team and strategic partners to overcome any storm. Our only goal here in the future is to produce and deliver our products on time to all our backers.
