50 vehicles per quarter for the first two quarters is absolutely horrid. That's almost 2 days per vehicle! 300 vehicles per quarter is 3 cars/day (what I would expect of ramp up for the first month of small line, hand-tooled assembly). 400 vehicles per quarter isn't much better (at all).

I'm starting to get worried - I hope they don't pull an Elio ...

Electra Meccanica initially stated their production capacity would be 20 vehicles per month and if they brought in a second assembly team 40 per month and then scaling production after the Signatures Series Solos are delivered.  That's 240-480 Signature Series Solo per year.  It seems EMV is doing what they say they are going to do for the most part, while waiting on Compliance Testing.  No need to worry.  

I do recall someone saying one of last 2 E-builds didn't have an engine in it.  Maybe push the Elio would be a more appropriate term than pull an Elio.

That's always been the stated plan SparkE. I doubt if they'll work 7 days a week.
They originally said that the first quarter would see between 10 - 20 Solos per month.
Also, originally there were to be 120 Signature Alphas built (basically by hand) instead of 1K.

As far as pulling an Elio... Do you mean spending another 6 years and $120 Million...
To produce another 5 vehicles that are less roadworthy than the Solos EMV already has? Smile
