Fuel Efficiency With Elio Motors
Fuel efficiency may take a running advancement next year in the form of a vehicle design from Elio Motors.
The car qualifies as a motorcycle in many States.
The car manufacturer has negotiated with several States for its design to classify as a regular car instead.
Currently named the P5, the automobile contains many similarities to modern car plans.
It involves features like air conditioning and air bags.
These two items alone do not appear on motorcycles.
Fuel Efficiency in a Modern Design
The name will most certainly change, but in its current implementation, I shall refer to the vehicle as the P5.
It only runs on three wheels, and it offers a fuel efficiency of 80 miles per gallon.
In most situations, I think of vehicles with three wheels as something uniquely dangerous.
However, in its present design, the front two wheels steer, and the single rear wheel provides traction through an engine in the back.
This functionality proves much safer than an architecture resembling a trike, where the traction and steering combine together in the front with just one wheel.
With a number of features related to vehicles with four wheels, the P5 displays seat belts for each of the two seats, power windows, power door locks, and heating.
As mentioned earlier, it also reveals air conditioning and three air bags.
The steering comes with power-assist.
The warranty covers up to 36,000 miles or three years.
The engine, a custom scheme constructed by Elio itself, has three cylinders.
On top of that, the factory for the vehicle assembly resides in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Elio Motors claims that roughly 90% of the parts will originate from inside the United States.
Comments on the car include praises about how Elios business will help with fuel efficiency and with creating United States jobs.
So far, the price for a single P5 comes under $7,000.
Hopes for Fuel Efficiency with the P5 Persist in 2015
With that price and the number of features that show, the financial cost seems almost like a work of fiction.
Regardless, Elio Motors continues to press with its efforts, and investors aid in sustaining the life span of the company.
Approximately 44,000 customers have pre-registered with the manufacturer as counted last year in 2014.
One facet captured my attention: the dashboard will contain a digital instrument panel.
I am not sure if standard readings will occur as usual.
I do know that navigation, similar to a Global Positioning System, will appear on the display.
I am just curious on how Elio Motors intends on upgrading the P5s map data though.
Finally, schematics include arrangements for up to three cameras, which will coordinate along with the digital display.
The main hindrance to the car persists in the form of motorcycle laws.
That element alone would forcefully reduce the market of the P5.
It would push customers to earn license approvals for driving motorcycles, and it would also obligate occupants to wear helmets.
Hopefully, Elio Motors will win out in this area, so that the companys fans can score on the cars details, price cost, and fuel efficiency.
