Elio Motors three-wheeler due 2014 for 6,800 USD

by SpeedLux

Elio Motors has revealed its plans to commence selling their three-wheeler, two-seater from June 2014. The model would come with a base price of $ 6,800.

The model has been designed keeping in mind the budget constraints for the first time buyers. The model will be able to return an estimated 49 mpg US (58.8 mpg UK or 4.8 liters / 100 km) in the city and 84 mpg US (100 mpg UK or 2.8 liters / 100 km) on the highway.

Paul Elio, founder and CEO of Elio Motors, said that the vehicle will be able to tip the scales at less than 800 lbs (363 kg) and will probably come fitted with a 3-cylinder, 1.0-liter gasoline engine linked to a 5-speed automatic gearbox sending power to front wheels. The vehicle will be able to accelerate to 0-60 mph (0-96 kmph) in less than 9.6 seconds and will have a top speed of more than 100 mph (161 kmph).

In terms of size, the vehicle is 161 inches long and has a wheelbase of 110-inch. It comes with a fold-down back seat to provide cargo space which can easily accommodate a set of golf clubs or something of similar size.
