"We thought we had tomorrow all figured out. Then tomorrow changed its mind.
Gas today is at an all-time high. Space is becoming a smaller and smaller commodity. We’re being crowded off our roads and bumped and dinged out of our parking lots. And cars cost more than the average house did only a few decades ago.
Traditional personal transportation isn’t working like it used to. We need a new way of getting around.
That’s when a car enthusiast, a visionary, a man with a dream named Paul Elio, got an idea. A simple, brilliant idea. To create a vehicle for today’s generation of drivers that addressed their transportation needs and the world’s new realities.
The result is Elio.
Will it have the impact and influence the Model-T had on America and the world, and later, the Volkswagen Beetle (literally, the People’s Car)? Well, maybe, maybe not. But either way, it certainly wants to give the future a run for its money. And it certainly deserves a closer look.
It is definitely a 2 seater (front and rear), but I dont think we can really compare it to the insight. The Elio is more like a covered 3 wheel motorcycle than a 2dr coupe like the insight. It doesnt seem very durable either, from watching the video, when the person opens the door, the window frame twists like its made of cardboard.
Their website states 84 mpg hwy and 49 mpg city.
5 speed or Auto trans.
"anticipated 5 star safety rating"
It's more than a 3 wheeled bike, and for a decent price.
