    A couple of other three wheeler startups have been successful, but the Arcimoto FUV or EMV SOLO don’t meet the needs of all former or current Elio fans. Other successful startup concept options may follow. The Elio Marketing Teams MSRP and MPG hype was the driving force behind my interest in Elio.

    I'm seriously convinced the fat lady has indeed sung.

    If the Elio were to be made, it would be shocking. But being #2108 I feel that I along with all others have been taken by a very clever, deceitful man/company. Should have given that "Un-refundable" a second thought BEFORE the money was sent. I wonder if the original purchaser dies, does their descendants get their place in line or does the monies just go into the pockets of the 'company'?

    Yep, you should have read the disclaimers a bit closer, and looked at the SEC disclosures if they were available at the time you forked over the money. It's no big deal if you could afford it and understood from the beginning that the odds of production were essentially zero.

    The promises never matched the reality, even from the beginning. Once the SEC filings came out, there was no excuse for sending in reservation money. The Reg A stock investment never made sense as an investment, but it was a reasonable speculative short-term gamble.

    There were a number of true believers who made enough money on paper to pay for their reservations, or even the whole vehicle. Some cashed out their profits, but others rode the stock back down to a loss.

    People who did the research and recommended keeping your money were called trolls and haters. As usual, fear and greed won out. Fear of missing the next great thing, and greed to be the first in line. Worked out about like giving in to fear and greed usually works out.
