Does anyone know for a fact what happens to the advance deposits over 35,000 people have made? Specifically, are they held in an untouchable escrow account to be used to pay for our purchase of a car or is the money available to the company to use in any manner it chooses prior to vehicle delivery. Many companies have tried to produce cars and many have folded before any car rolled off an assemble line, if the money is in escrow it will be returned to customers. If it goes to the general operating fund of the start up, it is lost. Anyone know what the situation is with ELIO?
