How is the Elio so fuel-efficient?

By using a combination of lightweight materials and a unique aerodynamic body style, the three- wheeled vehicle will weigh a targeted 1,350 lbs., roughly half of the average 2,400-pound vehicle on the road today. Front-to-back seating is the secret to our high fuel efficiency, as we are half the width of traditional passenger cars. The Elio moves half as much air as a traditional passenger car, and wind drag is the single biggest factor impacting fuel economy during highway driving.  Combine our configuration with an ultra-efficient engine and you get unbeatable gas mileage.
