The Elio gets 84 miles to the gallon on the highway and 49 MPG in the city and can go 672 miles on its 8 gallon tank. It will cost $6,800 and is slated to begin production in the spring of 2014 at Elio Motor's Shreveport, Louisiana plant.
Each Elio comes equipped with a Safety Management System that includes three airbags – a reinforced roll-cage frame, Anti-Lock Braking System, and 50% larger crush zones than similar vehicles. Preliminary safety tests on computer models anticipate a 5-Star safety rating.
Top speed is in excess of 100 MPH, and the 0-60 speed is under 9.6 seconds. It has 3-wheel disc brakes with Anti-Lock Braking System on 15″ wheels.
It has independent suspension with unequal length control arms, coil-over-spring and shock in the front and mono-shock with coil-over-spring and shock in the rear. The ground clearance is 5.75″ — similar to most of the passenger vehicles you see on the road today.
The engine is in the front and it is a front-wheel-drive vehicle. So, with a low center of gravity and weight towards the front, you’ll get great traction action – even in the snow.
