      Hey Scotty, I would love to see your opinion on the ford 5.4L. 2v, 3v and 4v. Curious cause I have 2v and they seem alot more reliable than a 3v but my friends still make fun of me for having an unreliable motor

      Thoughts on Arcimoto? It’s basically an electric version of the elio but it’s more refined and electric.

      Pity, doesn't seem Elio will come out. All other 3 wheeler s are one rear wheel drive, not enclosed or tow rear wheels. Limited summer toys. Two front wheels are very stable and with the front wheels driving would be great all weather cars. been wanting a modern version of the old three wheel cars my whole life. wish someone who could build cars would buy out Elio and get it done!

      Even if the Elio were actually produced, I seriously doubt it would become a sales success.
      Small vehicle without a rear window and rear view mirror? Only two small side view mirrors.
      A veritable death trap on the freeway.

      *Oil burning has never been a problem with any Elio. The numerous $1C to $1K T shirts have never been reported for service life.*

      I can't see how that could get 80mpg, when my V-twin bike gets only about 43mpg. Another way to look at it is that it's a dressed up and lowered CanAm Spyder . . . .which also does not get 80 mpg. Technology has advanced since this vehicle was originally designed. It might have been better envisioned as a plug-in hybrid electric . . . but, of course, it's too late for that now.

      The problem with Elio is that he is a poor businessman, makes very bad strategic decisions, and doesn't understand manufacturing. Frankly, I wouldn't trust the guy to make a bicycle. Also, there is nothing unique nor remarkable about the Elio from a technology perspective and three-wheeler designs have been done many times before like the HMV Freeway which was built from '79-'82 and could achieve almost 100MPG on regular gas and sold for under 3 grand.

      This guy speaks about the Elio for like a minute and a half, says false things like the elio has one drive wheel (the front 2 are powered) , then rants about other crap for the rest. Wtf haha

      Elio has been selling this line of bullshit for almost 7 years and never moved toward actually producing anything. Next in line with his snake oil car is Storm Sonders and his Sonders three wheeler. Its been going for about 3 years now..

      i dont buy the underfunded story - they could simply sell the few prototypes they were making at hummer factory to people who want one to fund mass production. there is a big market for a cheap fuel efficient car especially one that could be classified as a motorcycle (but we know the states wont let that happen) the legacy automakers got together and offered elio something he couldnt refuse to cease production - they fear small auto companies coming out with innovative designs that will cut maintenance/fuel costs because nobody will buy their ill designed, breaking all the time. gas guzzling ugly crap cars anymore.

      I am kind of sad that Elio never got off the ground. It's the kind of thing I think I'd love personally. 95% of all my trips are by myself, and I would have loved to have a cheap option that would get killer mileage.

      I wonder if they would've done better had they opted to try and re-work an existing engine from someone instead of trying to make their own.

      Just remember Tesla was in the same boat a few years ago. Millions of dollars in the hole and only a few working vehicles.. now look at them. So it is possible. But not very probable. Elio himself has put $350,000 in his own pocket..

      Tesla was never in the same boat. They has fianacial backing from the beginning. They never sold non refundable reservations and promised those people that they would be building a car, yet never did. Remember, Elio was to start production in June 2014. Here we are 5 years later and Elio has done nothing. Tesla never did that.

      Elio... Aptera... Both good designs, but the auto manufacturers would rather prevent competition than have new efficient vehicles on the road.

      Elio Is requiring a down payment of $7000 now AND openly discloses that the money is not secure it's an investment in the company and you get a car and return but if they file bankruptcy do not get any of your money back

      To call Elio Motors "The Biggest Mistake in Automotive History" is a real stretch and IMO shows an uninformed or biased viewpoint in the automotive industry field. YMMV

      Elio never made more than a few prototypes. It would have been a real disaster if they made 200K of them and then went out of business leaving all of their owners without any support.
