I went to see the Elio car that is touring the country. It will be a gas saving game changer. It seats two people in tandem, meaning one in the front and one in the back. It currently qualifies as a “cycle” which means you can drive it in the car pool lane. You can reserve yours for a small deposit. The full purchase price is expected to be $6800.
From this angle it almost looks like a normal car.
But not so much from this angle.
