    The Elio is a GREAT idea and concept; the green P2 prototype has been around since 2009. It just seems that Elio Motors has had trouble keeping to their own established timelines…. and may not be up to the task of actually reaching production. A real ‘shame’, since America could really use a vehicle (AutoCycle) like this; Inexpensive, economical, and suitable for ‘most’ daily driving tasks.

    Sure there are few negative people that have lost faith because Elio Motors won’t answer thier particular question. But there are a so many more that have not lost faith in what Paul Elio is trying to do. Where does it say that Elio Motors is required to answer any question. Nowhere. He is not required to let anyone in on his plans! This is his dream and his company. He alone chooses his way to accomplish his dream.
    I read the contract very carefully and it took me three days to make an informed decision back in May of 2013 to go “All In” at the $1000 level registration. I did so knowing full well that in such a huge endeavor there could/would be delays. I’m in for the long haul and feel it will be worth some delays to turn out a quality product!
    Keep in mind the very few that lost the faith compared to all those still in support of Elio Motors. Over 38,000 people have shown thier continued support!

    Gary Scherler, many of those 38,000 are now (after 2 years of waiting) wondering if Elio Motors will be able to do as they ‘claim’ (after several ‘postponements’ of their SELF IMPOSED timelines). The ‘Terms of Agreement’ does not promise anything; BUT Elio Motors’ own words have stated; “Each week we are taking you along on our journey by sharing some of our progress making your Elio.” Quote from 13, Sept, 2013… AND “”As a company, we have chosen to bring you along for the ride as we develop and fine tune the vehicle for market. So, instead of hiding the prototypes and doing a single unveiling in 2015, we are showing you how the vehicle develops from idea through reality.”…. they have made a Public Commitment. Now they must HONOR it, RETRACT it, or suffer the condemnation for NOT being TRUTHFUL!

    The “Elio” is never going to happen. It’s strange the entire driveline, rear drive, and other mechanical aspects are not being demonstrated. Vaporware, sucking in more people with “advance deposits” than Paul (The roofer) Elio could build in four years. That’s on the wild speculation that the Elio will ever happen. Look for the second coming of Christ first.
