Even the endless daily Elio advertisements seemed to end. Glad to read about any possible survival in the US. I bet Alibaba is licking its chops!

Even with all that "protectionist" ideas surrounding American manufacture of vehicles, it seems to be more focused on conventional 4-wheeled vehicles instead of non-conventional designs such as the Elio. Well, maybe with the right marketing and lobbying approaches, it can still succeed.

It's not going to happen
I can find next big thing articles from a decade ago
You can have one just as soon as your LFTR home power station is ready to fill up your carbonized chicken feather hydrogen storage tank the one you need to power your fuel cell powered Aptera

Like Solar City in Buffalo, NY this project is a sink hole for funds. Neither car owners or motorcycle riders are overly impressed. The comfort and passenger - miles per gallon are not competitive. In most states you would need a motorcycle license and a helmet to operate one.
Actually if you live near a chicken farm the feathers could be used as fill in composite materials and the manure makes methane for a fuel cell. My next vehicle will likely be a Corolla but I still want to streamline my mountain bike and 50cc Honda scooter.

Is the same story as above.

Only difference is no one cares.

We talk about capitalism but reality is business doesn't take risks with their own funding, they get John Q Public do it.

Crony capitalism everywhere

I'm going to have to get out my chart of logical fallacies. Excluded Middle? No.

First of all, SolarCity doesn't have a space in the middle. They are hiring and expect production this summer.

Different management is different. Plus Panasonic.
