Considering the price range of the vehicle, they don't need the support 
or to worry about ramping up production initially. All they have to do 
is conform to the US
regulations and be placed into the conforming vehicle list. Then the 
purchaser can import the car as a conforming vehicle. Then once a few 
get here, demand can be created in the US market.
