HOUSTON – It is tiny, it is relatively inexpensive and it gets great gas mileage. It is the Elio.

The three-wheeled prototype from Elio Motors caused a lot of double takes when it rolled through Houston Thursday.

The American-made vehicle boasts 84 mpg on the highway, 49 mpg in the city and has a $6,800 price tag.

Elio Motors was born out of Paul Elio’s vision for an efficient and affordable revolutionary vehicle.
