What an amazing weeks we have had! We couldn't have dreamed that the article 'Classics should not become museum pieces' in NRC Handelsblad could result in so much positive response!
We are overwhelmed by the off-the-charts interest in the quintessenza. From potential customers, press ad investors, both from The Netherlands and from abroad!
But even more important, the first reservations are in. The entire production capacity for 2018 seems to be fully booked, so we open up reservations for 2019!
Enough work to be done!
Roundtable meetings with potential customers
In the past week, we've had roundtable meetings with all potential customers in which we've discussed their requirements and involvement in the development process.
Co-creation with the first customers
The first customers will forever have a special place in our hearts. Therefore, we take them with us on the development journey. This involves interior and design workshops, driving dynamics development, test drives, etc.
Opening up a new laboratory
In the upcoming phase of prototype dimensioning, we will most likely move to a new laboratory in the heart of automotive Netherlands. We'll share more information on this as soon as it will be available. Once in business, we will find a good moment to celebrate this new opening.
