Elio Motors shows off car to the public

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La. -

Positive opinions are what most at the Elio Motors showing have to share. People came from near and far to experience the start-up's three wheeled vehicle. Some have even put money down for one of their own, even when Elio has yet to take ownership of GM's old plant.

"They had a $100 option, $500 option and a $1000 option," Michael Detillier said. He and his wife Mitzi paid a down payment, and say they drove about 500 miles from South Louisiana to see the car, which they can't wait to own.

"Just had to see it in person, and we're for them to be manufactured," Detillier said. "We want one." Detillier says he drives far for work. So Elio's expected high fuel economy was attractive.

"For us its very economical, 84 miles to the gallon and safe," he said. "A lot safer than my motorbike."


Elio Motors will next showoff their vehicle in St. Louis.
