    It should arrive later this week!

    Ordered an all electric vehicle for around town use, in order to save wear & tear on combustion engines on short trips, but CAN legally go on highway. It is a GOLF CAR, but technically considered an AUTOCYCLE, which is considered same as a motorcycle in FL.

    Unfortunately, it has lead-acid batteries. But when time comes for replacement, I'll upgrade to lithium, and increase the 50 mile range dramatically. I successfully did the same on a golf cart, saving money, dramatically lost vehicle weight, and increased battery life from 3-4 years to 7-10. A win-win-win.

    List price is around $12,000, but won on Ebay bid for $8500, even though the Buy It Now price was $9,995.

    Actual the other day, my brother who was interested in one years ago, reminded me of them when I showed him what I'm getting, so I went to see the status of the Elio, and came across this site. Just thought someone might consider the "similar" AYRO. That's all.

    A few of us long time Elio fans are looking at different three wheeler options while waiting on Elio. I appended across the AKO prototype a few days ago that has active lean tech. The tilt factor is my dream feature on an enclosed three wheeler vehicle.

    Wow, looks a whole lot like an Arcimoto FUV. Like the AYRO guys saw an FUV prototype and said "I bet we can do that, but cheaper".

    I think it is neat and glad to have more 3 wheelers on the market. The FUV was a hoot to drive (on the test drive), so I bet the AYRO will be too.

    Congrats, and enjoy!

    To slow for the highways I take. Not sure about the short wheelbase. Might be a little tippy.

    They claim it is very stable. When I upgrade (someday) to much more powerful lithium batteries, maybe speed can be increased.

    I had a Piaggio MP3 500 tilting reverse trike. Was not that impressed with it.

    I should have clarified my dream feature to include fully enclosed and high performance; more typical to the CarverOne ......that doesn’t describe the Piaggo MP3. :) The AKO concept has those characteristics as a concept, but will likely never make it to production.

    I like it. Seems a lot like the Elio. Would be nice to use for DoorDashing. Except the range. Sometimes I can go for 60 miles in one dash. Plus here we got hills upon hills. I got a feeling it would struggle to get 40 miles here on one charge. Also the price seems pretty high for what you are getting....

    But interesting indeed. Would turn heads dashing with it for sure.
