Haven't seen this up here yet, so here goes:

The Elio features on this AutoBlog video on the 2015 LA Auto show.
Translogic 189: 2015 LA Auto Show
Quote:
The LA Auto Show has become known for its green cars and concepts, and 2015 was no exception. Translogic host Jonathon Buckley gets all the details on BMW's 330e plug-in hybrid straight from BMW President of North America Ludwig Willisch.
Then we get up-to-date on Honda's latest FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell car.
We round out our tour with a stop at the Elio Motors booth for a look at their updated, three-wheel P5 concept and a chat with CEO Paul Elio.
But first, we jump in a time machine at the Volvo booth to discuss Concept 26, an interpretation of how car interiors might evolve in the era of self-driving cars.
Something in there for most of us, I guess.

I really feel sorry for those who lost their depots in this scam.

I really wanted this to work out. It's a great product. 84MPG would be awesome in something that requires no modification.

Unfortunately, as time goes on, it's pretty obvious that it just isn't going to happen

I keep waiting for the skeptical posts to taper off, but they never do. First Post was 01-04-2013.

Elio Motors, The Next Big Thing?!!...Permalink 676

13 months ago I posted about the Acimoto SRK8. Today I have a modest refundable deposit down on one. If it ships first I will probably come back to this thread to —eh— comment.

Jay Lenos Garage on TV had segments with 2 of the 50 Tuckers sold, and photos of that annual Shell meet with many 3-wheelers. No Elios spotted. Seems like Elio is being passed by.
