If you read between the lines of the post I originally linked to, hes basically saying they need to do hot weather testing, and its winter down under in Australia (IE they already have mules going for winter testing in Australia). So in essence having a mule shipped to the US for hot weather testing in GM's hot weather proving grounds before the end of summer is not so radical(because production model is supposed to be finished before summer next year so that production could start later in the year).

Oh and you wont see them on the highways until after we have seen the production model in an autoshow.

Anyway thats just my theory. (I just need to find some way into the proving grounds, they have a 15ft berm around the whole thing and 8 ft barb wired fence before that...)
