Yep

2014 Mirage / View Full Vehicle Specifications / Mitsubishi Motors

under safety & security

I like it in the Cobalt & Impala, both give real pressure in each tire, and will want the same in the next car I buy for my daughters to use, reduces the chance of a flat on the side of road.

I once looked into putting a tire pressure system in my mother's Camry. It just did not seem cost effective.

Ah. I am going to check my tire pressure. Thanks for reminding me!

Elio broke the 10k reservation mark. Current testing has gotten them to 81.x mpgs. Close enough for me.

I am sorry that TV shows are so weak and chaotic - but at least it is coverage.

$7,000 84-mpg Elio car moves forward with new production plant

$7,000 84-mpg Elio car moves forward !
84mpg by the test procedure, others will see higher numbers or lower if you have a need for speed.
I bet this car would be able to reach 100mpg with the right technique/drivers.



Elio Motors is taking the next big step toward the production of its 84-mpg (2.8 L/100km) tandem three-wheeler. It won't quite make its original Summer 2014 start, but it plans to get Elios rolling off the lines next year at the former General Motors Shreveport Assembly and Stamping Plant in Louisiana.

The Elio at CES 2014
A different green design, the Elio offers up to 84-mpg based on light, composite constructruction.
The Elio's current specs include a 55-hp inline three-cylinder engine

In the wake of the purchase of the plant by the Caddo Parish Industrial Development Board, Elio is moving forward with its plans to rent 1.5 million sq ft (139,000 sq m) of space. Elio also mentions that part of the remaining 2.6 million sq ft (242,000 sq m) of plant space may be rented by some of its suppliers.

"This has been an extremely exciting week not just for me personally, but for the entire Elio Motors team," says Paul Elio, CEO and founder of Elio Motors. "We’ve had an incredible amount of momentum, which has led us to a new plant that will be the foundation for building the new vehicle. Plus, we also raised over $7 million to help us move forward."

"My dream has been to build a new kind of safe, reliable, fuel-efficient vehicle here in the United States. Acquiring this plant and all of the equipment in a fully operational state will allow Elio Motors to thrive right off the bat once commercial vehicle production begins in 2015."

Elio projects that it will create 1,500 new jobs in the Shreveport area, beginning its hiring push later this year and completing it by late 2015. It plans to start vehicle production in the first quarter of 2015.
Elio Motors is still sticking with its $6,800 base price estimate

Since we covered the Elio last spring, its engine has been updated to a 55-hp 0.9-liter inline three-cylinder. Other specs, including the 84-mpg highway fuel economy, 100-mph (161 km/h) top speed and 672-mile (1,081 km) range, remain the same, as does the projected price of US$6,800.

Check out our gallery for photos of the current Elio design from CES 2014, the latest stop on the prototype's ongoing tour around the country.

With the start date continuing to move into the future it is hard to be optimistic.

I am hopefull it not only gets there but also strikes a nerve and sells well (something that doesn't happen often)

For my part I would like to buy just a rolling chassis and put a honda insight drivetrain inside

Going from a geo metro powered prototype to full production in a year? Forgive me if I am skeptical. Think about all the issues that will come up in a new chassis and engine design, as well as the testing and quality control they will have to complete before it's even ready for production. Even if it's ready by 2015, they are going to have a hard time selling them in the volume they need to keep that low price tag.
