Malcolm Bricklin high on himself, plans Chinese built Luxury PHEV
Given Bricklin's selective knowledge of the history of the business he is in and the history of many of his own enterprises (Bricklin Motors, Yugo, his abortive tie-up with Chery), any pronouncements he makes about his latest venture need to be taken with a huge block of salt until there are actual vehicles for us to evaluate. In the meantime he plans to invest in a plant in China to build a quarter million battery packs per year in order to get the volumes up and the unit price down. He wants to use 150,000 per year for his own luxury PHEV and sell the rest to other EV companies like Tesla and Phoenix. He apparently wants to get this car on the road by the end of 2009. Hey Malcolm! Call us when you have keys to turn over.
