Elio Motors’ $6800 Car Is More Than Just The Future Of Commuting

Even though fuel prices are starting to fall, the sole selling point of the Elio is not just its amazing claim of 84mpg on the highway. Even if gasoline dropped to $1 per gallon, the Elio would still make sense for most people. Sure it’s not a family car and it does have its inherent limitations, but the majority of drivers out there drive alone and they usually don’t want a high car payment. At $6,800 you could empower a massive segment of the US market that would otherwise spend that much on used automobiles. Having a new car with a warranty can make a lot of people feel more secure in their daily commute.

If you broke down the $6,800 cost of the Elio into manageable monthly payments, you could pay it off in 36 months for around $200 per month. This transportation option presents not only a logical solution, but an economical one as well. Most full-time workers should be able to afford the low payments of an Elio, and the reduced fuel costs as well. We need more vehicles like this on the market, and many of us should be eagerly anticipating its eventual release.

In the meantime, Elio Motors is working on all of the background work to source supply partnerships, cut through government regulations, and stir up an audience. It may still be another couple years before we see a production model on the streets, but the wait should be worth it. The next logical question any reasonable car guy is probably asking themselves is “When will we see a performance model?”
