The company currently has more than 2,000 pre-orders for its vehicles from customers around the world. “We will deliver the first batch of cars to beta testers in 2019, a bigger batch to end customers in late 2019, successively followed by more cars in early 2020,” says Unerman. “We are aiming to ramp up production to 20,000-plus cars in 2020. Based on market demand, we will potentially scale up the production in the years after.”
