“It’s only ten weeks, which is not a lot, but the work is going to plan,” Steiner said.

“We are pretty happy, everything seems to come together. The car is the last thing you bring in and the production planning is going well.

“We will start to produce a car in mid-January, we will do the crash test at the beginning of January and then we will start to put one together.

“We will roll it out hopefully the day before the testing starts.”
