If Lotus has yet to finalize exactly what will be in the final production version and they are not going to start building cars until May, what is the point of taking orders so early?
Production of the US car starts in May not April as was originally thought, with first orders shipping late May.James A said:If the first set of deliveries is in April the options, colors, etc. need to be determined now for the build cycle. Order components specific to the orders, receive the components, build the cars, ship the cars, receive the cars, prep. the cars, customer delivery. Four months is not unreasonalbe as an order, build, delivery cycle.
By the way, I'm not holding my breath regarding the April date.
