I totally agree. The Spouse and I bought into it in 2014. We don’t know what to think now. We tried to avoid the conversation.
Well said Jeff. If they can deliver it at 7K (+ taxes), I'll buy 2- my way of helping cut carbon footprint.I have no problems or regrets when others ask me about Elio. Investing in Elio was a bit of a long shot but I believed, and still do believe, that when Elio comes to be that it will be greater than just transportation for myself. I whole heartedly believe that it's low cost and high mileage will make it an answer to environmental concerns and provide much needed transportation for those that cannot otherwise afford transportation.
If others give me grief I ask them what they have done or will do to make the world a better place.

Thanks for checking Gerry.
The production date is estimated to be 76 weeks from the timely and successful completion of our current and subsequent fundraising efforts. The timing and availability of the funds can move and we will do everything we can to keep the project moving forward by utilizing each piece of funding received, as we receive it. Thank you for your support.

So I don't understand the 76 weeks then. Because the quote above came from Elio and "expedite the timeline" means, you make it shorter. In this case, less than 76 weeks. That was on September 27, 2018 and now on November 19, 2018, it's still 76 weeks. Did I miss something?Purchasing an OEM’s existing powertrain has an enormous impact on the project, it helps both expedite the timeline, and it directly reduces our capital requirement by about $120 million dollars.
