That's answering a 5 year old post there...

In retrospect, Elio did not make the cabin 50% narrower than an ordinary car.
They went the full 100% narrower; and not just the cabin, but all the other parts have 0% of the size of contemporary cars.
You can't even see it anymore. You have to imagine it's there.
