Looks like an electric city car this time. They have a bizarre way of stating their range, they say that you can go for three days on a single charge and then in small print they say that the average commute is 52 miles. Elsewhere you can find the range of 150 miles. No mention of charging speeds, the only thing said is that it will charge from a 120V outlet, does that mean that it’s Level 1 only? That would be a non-starter.
Elio’s legacy is that they did a lot of the ground work to get three wheel cars legalized. They never seemed like they knew what they were doing when it came to actually building a car. Their pricing goals were incredibly unrealistic, their original objective was something like $7500. The new iteration is $15K which also seems unlikely. However if GM/SAIC can build an EV for $4000 in China then maybe $15K isn’t impossible.
Just looked at their website, the $7500 car is still there.
