An Updated Look at Dan’s and My Upcoming Wonder Car, the Elio

Dan and I were among the first to put down non-refundable $1000 deposits on the Elio last year, after we first saw the prototype at CES. Let’s just say that the barely functioning vehicle we sat in last year has come a long way! Dan and I couldn’t be more excited and happy about our upcoming new cars!


Here’s a video look at the latest version; it has a slightly altered design, new tech on the inside, and it still keeps the 84 mpg promise with a base price of $6800. We are hoping for a late 2015 or early 2016 release, and we will be brining you much more Elio coverage as it becomes available. In the meantime, enjoy!
