Check Out the New ‘Elio’ – The Car of the Future
When I first noticed this ad I thought ((ehhh)) just another odd looking car. After checking out the stats I was impressed!
84 mpg- It gets 84 miles to the gallon on the highway.
8-Gallon Tank -It can go 672 miles
Only $6,800 – That’s about what you would pay for an outboard motor to power a rowboat.
Safety Each Elio comes equipped with a Safety Management System that includes three airbags – a reinforced roll-cage frame, Anti-Lock Braking System, and 50% larger crush zones than similar vehicles. Preliminary safety tests on computer models anticipate a 5-Star safety rating.
Power in Numbers- An inline, 3 cylinder, 1 liter, 70 HP, fuel-injected, SOHC gas-powered, liquid-cooled, automotive engine.
Transmission Mission – 5-speed manual or automatic. And yes, it has a reverse gear.
Fast Facts Top speed is in excess of 100 MPH, and the 0-60 speed is under 9.6 seconds. So it’s not exotic sports car fast, but it’s not slow, either. And while a gas-guzzling muscle car might pass you, no one will pass gas stations like you.
