I received info from Elio Motor's Chip Stempeck, VP of Marketing and Sales. He says they are unable to provide much inormation at this point because of the competitive nature of this business but are about to make an exciting announcement to three wheel enthusiasts. Chip made this statement: As a quick overview, we have created a vehicle that seats two in tandem that will exceed every existing car in mileage and overall value. We will start out with a gas powered vehicle, available in manual and automatic transmission, and move to other technologies as soon as the they become more reliable and affordable to the masses. We are committed to making a safe vehicle, one that will stand up to the upcoming changes in occupant safety. On top of that, this car will be fun to drive and afford the owner a chance to really make it his or her own. Over 70 mpg, 5-star, and less than $7500.
I must say that I am excited about his enthusiasm for the Elio and at the price point looks be a safe, high mpg, eco friendly, fun ride even without the tilt. I for one am eager for more information about Elio as it becomes available.
