The factory was built to produce a line of luxury automobiles. Unique aspects of the factory include customer viewing areas and the combination of traditional mass-production and manual craft tasks. Specially-designed tram cars that use the city's municipal tram network were also implemented with the construction of the facility. These tram cars transport parts from a factory outside the city to the Transparent Factory.
