Elio Motors pitches 3-wheel high-mileage car – WSMV Channel 4

America has had a century-long love affair with the automobile, but what if the way to a cleaner environment meant rolling on just three wheels instead of four?

Elio Motors believes its three-wheeler high-mileage car is the answer, and a test model made its way through Nashville on Tuesday.

The Elio, priced at about $6,800, gets 84 miles to the gallon and can reach 100 mph. It seats two, but it’s also for families in a very specialized way.

“We all drive SUVs or minivans because we all have kids or boats or toys to haul, but the toys and kids don’t come to work with you every day. So it’s one person going to work in this behemoth every day getting 12 or 20 miles per gallon,” said Jerome Vassallo, with Elio Motors. “For the price of the fuel in those vehicles, you could pay for this Elio and still have money left over.”
