    I would go as high as $12,000 but no more.

    The good news is you can test drive the FUV and the first 100 pilot fleet retail FUV’s are being delivered to happy customers. Back in 2012, Chip Stempeck, EM’s Marketing Chief, emailed and said, “things are moving at a fast pace and you will have a test drive opportunity very soon”. I was ready to drive or book a flight for that test drive to determine if the Elio ‘fit’ and met my performance and handling expectations. I have more unanswered questions regarding the Elio than you have regarding the FUV.

    I did forget what needs to be added onto that $433M. There's the $7.5M fine and the ongoing cost of $261,204 per month for lease and equipment payments. Whatever that has added up to right now is at least another $3M. The $433M is more like $444M.

    Plus the loans at 18% interest, would be north of 500 million.

    The last new motorcycle I bought had an MSRP well north of 21K without options. I didn't pay retail that industry is in the skids. We are all buying pickup trucks and suburban assault vehicles and bi$ching about the price of fuel. Build them and I will buy.

    Not all of us. :) I have no need for a pickup truck or suburban assault vehicle, not bi$ching about the price of fuel, recently did buy my first new motorcycle and scheduling delivery of that urban commuter electric motorcycle with a MSRP $19,900. I’ll use the FU three wheeler the same as I would have used my Elio, as a daily driver supplement (&) to my primary vehicle. They are building them, many are reserving, buying, and have taken delivery. Certainly doesn’t meet everybody’s likes, needs, and wants, but nice to be aware of options.
