Ever since Ty mentioned it in the "Not Encouraging News For Eliocoin" thread, where he stated seeing something about a $1,000 dollar profit from Elio itself, I've been trying to find it because I could have sworn I had read it myself... Well after two months of searching, I found it! The reason people couldn't find it is because it's really obscure and if it was talked on this site, it would've been WAAAAY back in the day, as it was first mentioned in 2013. It's probably here on Elio Owners somewhere, but the search function is terrible, because I tried searching here and couldn't go back further than 2017. In fact, the two articles that discussed it aren't even available on the net anymore, as the sites (CleanTechnica and Gas2) give errors if you follow their links. Found the article headers on Google, got errors and only found these versions due to the internet's best friend, The Wayback Machine via the Internet Archive. In case you want to read the archived articles, here's the CleanTechnica one and the Gas2 one. Be forewarned, since they're cached versions, the formatting will be more than likely messed up. But, both sites had an active link to the file they were basing their claims on, an Excel Spreadsheet from Elio Motors. So here's the link to that file, which is still online. The numbers as a whole are fascinating, but the relevant bit for the $1,000 dollar profit can be found under the "Vehicle Cost" tag on the bottom of the screen, in-between "Volume- Labor, Plant, Retail" and "Retail Store Cost". These are numbers as they were listed back in 2013, so since a lot has changed in the 6 years since this was put up, their margin for profit (which is listed as $1,000) probably isn't the same anymore. Still, fascinating reading.
