    The break down the buyers within a category, not across all of the categories, which makes it kind of hard to understand trends.

    This is good news for Elio because it covers the super rich (the people that make over $80K or $150K). They don't cover the ones that make $20K. That's where Elio will shine. It opens up a market that the current auto makers avoid and you rarely ever see in market studies. Good for Elio because they are tapping into that market. Only downfall is that the Elio breaks the poverty cycle and those people will bey an SUV next (because they can afford it). Hopefully, the Elio 2.0 will be more SUV like but allow people so step up in income brackets.

    The ones that only make $20k will probably want something that has more than 2 seats. Remember, this is supposed to be an "and" car.

    It for the ones looking to break the poverty cycle too. That's why the price, mileage and Elio gas card are attractive for them and why Elio made it that way.
