A day-long workshop on dealership laws in America shows that the FTC is listening to different voices on the issue. But what is it hearing?
Elio Motorz is getting zerious with Infinite Skyz. The highly efficient three-wheeled vehicle isn't due until late 2015 (and that may change based on the result of Elio's DOE Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing loan request) but we now know that the 84-mpg trike can be connected to the cloud with Infinite Skyz's SkyzMatic vehicle connectivity system option.
Elio Motors continues to move forward on building a high-efficiency three-wheeled vehicle for the masses. For proof, take a look at a new local news clip of the inside of an old General Motors factory in Shreveport, LA. This is where Elio is going to build the lightweight, 84-mile-per-gallon vehicle, and it has started opening the doors to the media.
Elio Motors is taking its green-is-good mentality to its factory equipment. The company, which is planning to make super-light three-wheeled vehicles that get 84 miles per gallon, will finally start making trikes next year. The plan is to sell off extra equipment from an old General Motors factory to do so.
What does the three-wheeled, super-efficient Elio have in common with a gas-guzzling Hummer? Both use a standard internal combustion engine in favor of a hybrid or electric setup, and the Elio will be built in the same Louisiana factory that once hummed to the tune of H3 production. The similarities end there.
