committee has requested a detailed review of future cost projections as soon as possible. These projections are extremely important as the program moves toward the development of the production prototype vehicle and as cost reduction becomes an increasing priority.

The committee is also concerned that PNGV has not provided a systematic analysis of the relationship between proprietary cost analyses and the cost targets for vehicle technology subsystems. If the subsystem cost targets are credible, then they should add up to an affordable cost for the vehicle.
