What ever happened to the EMC? (Eco Motor Company)

That Eco Motor Company Commuter just vanished in 2007. An article is running about a few states getting involved with eco zero emission vehicles - and the Eco came to mind. The last I heard several were on the ship from China.

That EMC Commuter was very useful but that 3-wheel convertible vanished - now that is a Zero Emission pipe dream (never existed). I hope they try again. Probably blow the door off a Xebra.

I hadn't even seen the company before. This one's certainly not an EV.

In the advertising it was a 650cc one or two cylinder (4-stroke: it had valves) with an automatic transmission. I think other features advertised were air conditioning, power windows/steering/brakes/locks, and a stereo.

I have about 10 photos (dashboard, seats: everything but the motor/engine), but when I tried to save them they blurred up; so they were probably photoshopped.

I was very pleased about a useful back seat and the power top.

If you truly want one, cut out the middleman and buy one at alibaba.com.

I am pretty sure shipping would make a good deal bad. That ECO was supposedly based in Oregon, and was also selling in Rancho Mirage in southern California. Neat eye-candy @ Alibaba!
