I hope they get this vehicle on the market. I have said for many years that it was possible for a company to make a vehicle that would get 50 or more miles per gallon, and still be economical for the average American to purchase. I would never pay $75,000 or $100,000 for a vehicle that gets 40 or 50 miles per gallon that also has a battery that cost $5000. I am very excited about the Elio. I have not paid them any money yet but I sure would like to have one. It does seem to be a waste to be driving around by myself in my truck at 22 mpg.I also do not anticipate mass transit coming to rural western NC, so I could see a 84 mpg vehicle in my future.
