These are the badass women in automotive design industry!

The first thing that comes into mind when we speak about women and designing is probably fashion. Rarely would we think that women and designing can also be about cars. Yup, lots of women actually design automobiles, and perhaps one of these cars that they design is your ride right now.

It is almost a given that the automobile industry is a man’s game. But statistics tells us otherwise as according to Auto Alliance, women play the leading role in 85% of auto purchases. It means to say that women are very into cars, who even overpower men in numbers. But it’s also possible that the numbers mean that men just cannot afford cars on their own. Ha!

But undeniably, women are out there in factories and laboratories designing cars and systems, other than just being purchasers. From the initial concept to the production, and even to the complexities of the driver interface and the exterior design, women are already involved in this industry

Every car manufacturer in the world already has women in their team in various positions, specifically in designing cars. Here are few of those geniuses who are breaking ceilings when it comes to automobile design.
