    That is incorrect; the 65K was a number worked out between the ATVM people and EM; why they picked that number, or what it represents was never disclosed by either party. The signed commitment was also part of those meeting between ATVM and EM.

    Reservations keep bopping around 30/day, +/- a few. None of the variation is especially significant, unless it becomes a sustained trend. Average over the last 8 weeks is about 32.5. Over the last 4 weeks, it's 31.1. That's the holiday period, so no telling what kind of effect that could have.

    There is bound to be a little recovery, that should last well past the 65k offer. But I would have to say it will take more than that for any substantial increase in the reservation rate. The ATVM would about do it to trigger everything else. A major funding from elsewhere would as well.

    Completion of the crash testing or start of the 100 pilot build might be a partial trigger point for investor funding, but not the ATVM. Other than the 65k goal, something like having sales of the Engine to other industry, something like that, of a profit generating business operating, might contribute to the ATVM.

    Anyway, it looks like it will be very quiet on the eastern front until something substantial happens, something better than reaching the 65k.

    Hopefully their showing at Detroit will loosen some wallets.

    I'm thinking seeing some on the road would make reservations soar :D

    IF they come to Chicago, think I'll have to make the 3 hour trip :D
    (Only for the E1C though, already sat in the P3, P4 and P5!)
