    When you get as tired of waiting for the Elio as I have you might like to Google Sondor Motors a a
    nd take a peek at the proposed All-Electric Sondor which is supposed to make its appearance in 2020, cost about $10,000 and actually looks a whole lot nicer that the Elio.

    A couple of things. Looks like this is your first post - so glad you stopped by.

    Does Sondor have their own fan site?

    Looks like they are using startengine as well. Are you sure you don't want to start saying they are a fake company as well?

    You made it a bit too obvious where you stand on the Elio there Don. ;)

    Yep. They were actually supposed to start delivering today (July '19). Also, they haven't uttered a word about their second (engineering) prototype which was supposed to be finished, tested and certified this past spring. Ergo, they haven't even started it yet. Their financials show them to be pretty much broke and in the same boat as the subject of the forum that you just posted on. Anything I haven't covered? Oh, yeah... I guess I should clarify that the $10K version only has a projected range of 75 miles.

    Actually yes. I owned it and due to lack of interest, I let the domain expire this past year.
    We do have a FB fan page though. It's a little quiet due to lack-a-communication from the wellspring.

    Actually I think I have a reservation on a Sondors as well. Been so long I don't remember now, between Elio and Electramechannica, and Sondors I figured someone might make it, even if it wasn't exactly what I wanted, it would be a start. Alas, no starts yet.

    Ha! just found it, dated March 2018, better file that somewhere I guess.

    The Sondors is already on sale because on their website, it has an estimated delivery of April 2019. So if it's on the website, then it's true. So, any real world mileage out of the 10K Sondors? I need some reviews of the real world customers because I have $10K and want to wire it to Sondors and get my car next week. Thanks for helping me out as this Sondors must be the cats meow. I want to see the real world mileage here in the NE US too. There are times I need to stay warm and need to know if that 75 miles tuns into 50.

    I believe the price also jumped to $16.5K a couple of weeks ago too.

    I just seen that. Plus some are trying to get their deposits back and can’t. Sound like it’s a scam. Luckily I didn’t invest in that car. $16,500 for 75 mile range in sunny CA or 50 miles here in the NE. Forget it. Elio is half the price and way more range.

    Looks like a couple of the startups made it. The EMV SOLO & Arcimoto FUV:
