    .. I found this video on YouTube about Elio Motors dated December 24th, 2018 today and it's very interesting. I sent this video to Elio Motors and told them that they should be working with these people who produced it and you can do the same.

    This video has be viewed over 100,000 times since December 24th, 2018.



    I mentioned that I sent Elio Motors this video and here is the correspondence.

    While they were not accurate about helmet requirements, the video is very well done and I like their overall attitude.

    I especially liked their comment toward the end, that Elio motors may actually have the funding needed.

    This video says something significant: The carbon emissions of the Elio is less than the Tesla for 15 years before the Tesla caught up with the Elio. This is something the environmentalist should be aware of.

    I believe the head of the governmental department giving out ATVM loans is from Texas, an oil producing state. He should hear about how a good ole fashion gas burning vehicle is more environmentally friendly than a Tesla!

    Yes. That silver and black Elio did look very good.

    There is another interesting fact pointed out by the video's graph though not mentioned.

    They point out the Tesla's carbon footprint finally equals the Elio after 15 years.

    However they do not mention the carbon foot print of the Prius is always poorer than the Elio. The carbon footprint of the Elio is always better than the Prius. Isn't the Prius the holy model adored by environmentalist and worshiped so much?

    This means the Elio is actually more environmental friendly than the Prius.

    Will Elio Motors ever talk like this, pointing these things out?

    Yeah, but you can't buy something UNTIL IT IS PRODUCED!
