But why did they name it after a really slow lizard that hardly ever moves?

Going back to the 'production' bit - it's one thing to use a vehicle with plan to build many more, but surely there is a minimum number that must have been built first, because otherwise it may be just another small manufacturer that has a blaze of glory before disappearing? This company looks like it has the experience base, financing and resources to do as it claims, but the verified minimum number of actual vehicles still applies.
These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

Seems there is some question of the legitimacy of the claim - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSNRKBj_hUE
