Politics and environmental concerns actually hurt all aspects of efficiency. Get rid of all regulations and we will have affordable 70+ mpg cars within a year. Elio wasn't doing 3 wheels to try and save money, they were doing 3 wheels to try and skirt SOME of the regulations. Eliminate the regulations and Mitsubishi could sell a simplified Mirage for Elio's targets next year. Give them more time knowing there are no emissions or safety mandatory levels and they could do even better.

See now we are at least talking cars...
