Elio Motors is hoping to change the way we drive, without breaking the bank
It seems funny that we want bigger and ‘better’ cars. They’re not doing much for the environment, and they guzzle gas like crazy. Yes, there have been some hybrid cars created, but they cost and arm and a leg. It may be fine and dandy to have one family-sized car, but what about the days when you’re just commuting or running errands? Battling traffic in a van is definitely no fun.
Elio Motors is hoping to change things for the better for you, and the planet. They have created a three-wheeled car that fits two people, and can go 84 miles a gallon, at speeds up to 100 miles an hour (not that you should ever be trying to go that fast). It’s 160.5 x 54.2”, and can likely take on parallel parking with ease. So not only are you saving money, but you’re also saving space!
This is a USA-made car, and has a really amazing modern design. While it looks a lot smaller than what we normally picture for a vehicle, this is a far better option for those who have to travel a great distance without public transit to and from work. Possibly the best part? This car only costs $6,800. While its trunk is barely large enough to carry a golf bag or a carry on, the benefits outweigh the negatives. It has an 8 gallon tank, which means you’re good to go for about 672 miles. Just try and do that with another car.
