According to Elio Motors, some time next year, you can expect the company to begin building the car of the future in its Louisiana factory.
Elio Motors plans to build a three-wheeled vehicle capable of clocking 84 miles per gallon on the highway and will sell for a base price of only $6,800.
The model, which probably won’t ever have a name, will come equipped with a 3 cylinder, 55 horsepower engine and a “teardrop” body. Its narrow cabin can seat two passengers, though whoever gets stuck in the back is sure to experience a little claustrophobia.
Because the car will only have three wheels, it is, in legal terms, actually considered a motorcycle.
If you ask us, it looks like another tiny little deathtrap. But hey! If it can get really get 84 miles to the gallon, we’d be willing to trust its five-star crash safety rating and hop on in.
