Wheels That Fail (or W.T.F.)
 
That Velocity channel just had a segment of failures: Wheels That Fail. That orange Elio was one shown. HuH- did I miss something? :confused: Did that 3-wheel car really fail?

They haven't even produced them yet... and they are already programming the masses about it's failure??? wow.:(

I'd say it was Moller, Aptera, and how many others that did the programming.

Ha.. you do have a point there. Don't forget about Lit Motors.

I wish TV programs would get thing right. An online article tells me the Elio is alive and well.
Elio Motors first drive - Business Insider
Now if Paul Elio sues Wheels That Fail maybe he could hurry up production with the money!

Well technically they have failed every goal, estimate, whatever you want to call it. Price, mileage, time, etc. I guess it does still have the promised 3 wheels and 2 seats.

Oh, and let's not leave the Dale off the list. 3 wheels, 2 seats, and a device to conceal one's penis on that "going to revolutionize" the auto industry car.

I wrote Elio off a while ago. So yeah, that's a fail. How hard is it to make a three wheeler that skirts regulations a four wheel vehicle would have, with a kit car interior and engine based off of something in the 80s? How many years ago were these supposed to be out?

said they'd be released in late 2014.... then said in the first quarter of 2015, then late 2015. Then 2016 with no actual release date.. Now with 3 months left in the year, I'd suggest 2018 is a good estimate to when and if this car goes into production. And that's a BIG if

2018's a little optimistic.

...or, as Johnny Mathis might 'sing', the "Twelfth of Never"?
