Not really. This is the crash simulation their using in anticipation of having the NHTSA crash a random Elio off the production line.

The cracks in the windshield are a nice touch. I wonder how the forces are transmitted to the windshield header.

Anything less than a fully battle equipped HumV is just a metal coffin. Here in PA we play dodge the tractor trailer on the road. Loser dies!
Incidence of single vehicle fatal crashes are higher in suv/trucks.

If I lived in Hyperbole PA, and played dodge the tractor trailer I would rather do it in a vehicle capable of, you know, dodging. The difference between a 5 star rated car and an often unrated large pickup truck/suv vs a Simi is likely close to nil yet the ability to stop turn and accelerate is not compromised by an extra 3000 lbs false sense of security.

Is Bigger Safer? It Ain't Necessarily So

If the Ello handles good enough, and meets their target goal for crash survivability I would definitely consider one.

Exactly. Just saw another mid size 4 door car vs truck accident. Truck hit the car from behind and turned it into a 2 door flatbed. For me a 5 star rating is just a good point for resale.

No that says ship in 2015 with production at end of 2014. Sounds promising! Maybe we can get them to blog/post some factory renovation pics?

A few very-talented members on here are working on their own three-wheelers.

What kind of reverse tadpole can you make for $6,800, counting labor!
