Auto manufacturing is an impossible market to get into now. The existing players have the advantage, and the only way to make it is either a brilliant marketing strategy, or doing something radically different AND better than the existing manufacturers.

The EV market is going to contract for the next couple years, so this is about the worst time to jump in.

Raising $449,817 is a joke. You can't launch a car company on that kind of funding.
