The Elio must be in the same concept scrap heap as the Persu Hybrid. The BMW Simple & C.L.E.V.E.R. concepts are available to view at the BMW Museum and have both have been built and track tested. We have only seen a foam mock-up Persu and a line drawing of Elio. These start up companies must be creating concepts just for the initial first round of investor funding then vaporware and are laughing all the way to the bank.
