Default Elio three-wheeler claims 672 miles on one tank of fuel





Elio Motors thinks its new three-wheeled vehicle will be the next big thing in transportation. Before your eyes roll out of your head, let's look at the claims. Top speed -- more than 100 mph. Zero-60 mph -- less than 10 seconds. Range -- 672 miles.

Those all sound like great numbers, but we've heard that song before. But here's one we haven't heard: The Elio will carry an entry price of just $6,800. At least that's what founder Paul Elio said the two-passenger car will cost when deliveries start in July of 2014.

That thing is ugly as crap, can get up to 60 MPH between 9-10 second, whoop de doo. It can hold one average size person and maybe a backpack. Color me not impressed.

Default Re: Elio three-wheeler claims 672 miles on one tank of fuel

So what? my Moms old 2500 Suburban would go like 500+ on one tank.

To be fair, it's because the tank was like 45 gallons. The 454 V8 only got about 12MPG.

If I wanted something for gas mileage, I would go for a TDI Passat. Plenty of room for 4 or 5 adults, and more than 40 MPG in a mid-sized car.

But really though, as this evolves, I'm sure the design will improve. and $7k, 600+ miles on 8 gallons? This is quite interesting.

This is essentially a 3-wheel SmartCar.

If you join the revolution for $1000 do you also have to recruit others for this wonderful opportunity?

Seriously though, I wish him the best of luck. It may be OK around town but I wouldn't want to get on I-85 between Greensboro and Atlanta with it.
