PROGRESS REPORT - 2013 week 12
Saturday, March 30, 2013 at 04:34PM

Edison2’s Lynchburg experimental prototype shop conducted a planned series of checks following our early testing of VLC 4.0 chassis number 18. This very thorough inspection after 143 miles’ running to date has produced no unpleasant surprises.

Driver comments and feedback are encouraging and match expectations given the car’s present build. This finding allows us to make development decisions with good confidence. In short, knowledge of the new car, its performance and operation is accumulating rapidly.

Meanwhile, work in the machine shop continues on development parts for future testing and assessment. As they become available, these new parts will be sequenced into the program for proper evaluation.

Edison2 community outreach continued this week. Visits included a party from Central Virginia Community college whose machine shop trainees are already working on production evaluation parts for our future cars.

On April 11 we are unveiling the consumer production prototype at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. Preparations are well under way for this exciting event featuring the vehicle we’re currently testing and inspecting.
