Shucks. I hoped to be in on the first 1000 Solo EVs but I could be too late. They are already stacked up until Q1 2018. There’s still a small window of opportunity for the first 1000 but 2018? I still haven’t made up my mind… Now I have to worry whether I will live long enough to take delivery… 😉

    May I suggest a more reasonable approach? Delivery in 1-2 days!

    “How many small businesses have a year-long order book?”

    How many SMB’s go under and leave the buyer hanging? Hell even large companies have done it.

    Every “pay now, acquire never” Kickstarter hardware project out there.

    Only year-long? So these guys are supposed to do a massive R&D prototype, get the tooling, set up an assembly line and a delivery channel just to serve the ultra-niche market of the people who crowdfunded this vehicle and then fold due to lack of interest?

    And this is why Kickstarter hardware projects are mostly a scam. Unless they overshoot their target multiple times which will prove a genuine market exists to support a viable company, your gadget will not be made.

    I suggest that you impose a rule of “only one pay now, acquire never” project at a time. In other words, hold off from such purchases till you get delivery of your Cello or it is officially cancelled. This should keep you from making any more such purchases for more than you can imagine.

    OTOH, the project seems well-funded, scaling nicely and living within its means. Starting this year, they will actually have revenue that should help. How many small businesses have a year-long order book?

    *All delivery dates are subject to change without notice.

    I am willing to bet and almost certain the dates will slip. Then there will be some existential crisis that rears it head, then the coup d’etat will be blamed on government regulations being too restriction and the entire project scrapped with no refunds.
