Here’s the Elio website. The car has two seats, front engine and front wheel drive. Like Gus says, it might be too interesting to drive in snow. After a drive in this winter it would need a heated garage or those front wheels/fenders/suspension/driveshafts would freeze solid and I can’t see kicking them real hard to knock the ice off. That said, I think it is a good idea and should be successful. The site says you can buy it with no money down. Get an Elio credit card and buy all your gas with it, then make a monthly payment of three times that. 1/3 of the payment would be for gas 2/3 for you car payment. I don’t know if that is a good idea, but it shows these folks aren’t afraid of doing things differently. -Jack
