Welcome to Hugi Motors. From a young age, Hugi Aleixo has known more about America than his own country of Portugal. After his American father, a former coachbuilder-turned-car-mechanic broke up a controversial wedding with his Portuguese wife, Hugi followed his father’s footsteps and began developing an undying love for cars as a whole.
Once in working age, Hugi saw his father’s car-selling business both as a way to further his car love and find a profitable job. Thanks to said successful job and an upbringing learning the tricks and trades of the automotive world, he began yearning for more than just selling other companies’ cars. Taking action to buy a nearly bankrupt company situated in Detroit, Aleixo put together a small-but-enthusiastic team comprising of the company’s former employees and some of his dealership’s own. His goal? To create a company that could bring together passion and quality in each car made. In other words, Bridge The Gap.
Since then, Hugi has made a bit of everything. From wacky MPVs to controversial front ends, this is a (barely) organized biography of whatever comes out of my head as a car design. Constructive comments are more than encouraged and appreciated. Memes can receive some of that appreciation too, beggars can’t be choosers. So as long as it’s civil, it’s welcome. Enjoy!
