|Steve Hall, (CEO)|
Vanderhall Motor Works is an American vehicle manufacturer based in Provo, Utah. It manufactures hand-made three-wheeled autocycles designed for sports driving, touring, commuting and city driving.
Vanderhall Motor Works was founded in 2010 by Steve Hall. Hall, who had been a CAD designer at Novatek, spent five years prototyping before offering his designs to the public. His initial model was the Laguna: a three-wheel roadster that is federally classified as a motorcycle and passed final testing for NHTSA and EPA certification in 2016. In 2016, Vanderhall officially produced three autocycle models: Laguna, Laguna Sport Premium, and the Laguna Bespoke Motoring Experience. Each features a 1.4-liter, 200-horsepower GM four-cylinder, turbocharged engine with a GM 6-speed automatic transmission.
Vanderhall's flagship model, the Laguna, features a hand-laid carbon-fiber body.  It also has several patented components, including the non-welded cross-hatched front grille and tab-in-slot aluminum monocoque chassis.
In 2017, Vanderhall introduced the simplified Venice model. It features a step-over beltline in lieu of doors and a 180-horsepower version of the GM 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, mated to a GM 6-speed automatic transmission with optional sequentially manual shifting.
In 2017, Vanderhall previewed the all-electric Edison² roadster at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show (IMS) and again at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The 2019 model-year Edison² will have the equivalent of 180 total horsepower from twin electric motors, matched with a 30 Kilowatt-hour battery to give the vehicle up to a 200 mile range.
In 2018, Vanderhall announced a Speedster model at the annual Sturgis Rally. The 2019 Venice Speedster is a minimalistic iteration of the Venice with the passenger seat deleted. A fixed tonneau cover provides increased storage while serving to reduce buffeting and enhance design appeal. It shares the Venice's 1.4 liter, 180-horsepower GM four-cylinder turbocharged engine and 6-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Carmel is Vanderhall’s latest release. This model brings more luxury and convenience to the Vanderhall lineup. With front entry doors, a wider cabin, and provisions to accommodate a removable canvas cap shade, the Carmel offers additional comfort. Powertrain is a 200-horsepower GM 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 6-speed automatic transmission.
