Explanation:
I'm pretty sure that you have a back-translation there - either that, or it's been written by a German; the clue, it seems to me, is in the "PVS", which is a German car-manufacutrer's abbreviation of "Produkt Vorserie", or "pilot production" or "pre-production run". If this is so, I think you can forget the "ready to build through", as it is superfluous, IMO, and you can also ignore the "PVS", as it's already been put into words in "pre-production phase".

All in all, a fairly typical case of a German wanting to get it right so badly, that he did, VERY badly...and boiled and boiled and boiled his cabbages...
