It's neat, but I'm not sure how it does much to affect Elio. The Elio is, for lack of a better term, a real car. I can hop in an Elio and drive to Texas if I feel so inclined. Neither I, nor my passenger, have to pedal. I can also drive the Elio on the freeway, so it would actually work for my commute.

Don't get me wrong, it's neat and would be cool to own, but if both were available in the US the Elio would outsell it easily. I doubt the same wouldn't be true on other continents.
