Since then, MMC has already received orders for all 1,400 units to be distributed during the 2009 fiscal year.

MMC plans to start sales to individuals from April 2010 tapping into an additional set of customers. In preparation, it started to take pre-orders through dealerships since 31st July 2009. At the end of August, after only a month, 900 pre-orders were already received.
