It's Wheelie Good: The Elio Motors P5 features at LA Auto Show

The LA Auto Show finishes on Sunday, so here at Sell Your Jamjar, we thought we would take a look at what is setting tongue wagging at the famous event held at the Los Angeles Convention Centre.

Now three-wheeled cars may not be what many punters are expecting to see in the City of Angels but the latest prototype of the P5 by Elio Motors has to be worth a look.

The makers of the three-wheeled two-seater car believe the P5 will ‘shake up the car world’ and is expected to sell for less than half the price of the current cheapest car in in America at around $7,000 (£4,500).  

The Nissan Versa is currently the cheapest car in the US at $12,000 (?). Included in the Elio price too is air conditioning, stereo, power windows and more - you do not have to pay extra. 

It boasts a small, light and aerodynamic design, and, with a 0.9 litre three-cylinder custom-made engine it is apparently capable of hitting speeds of up to 100mph – it can reach 60mph in 9.6 seconds. It can also deliver up to 84mpg according to Elio Motors. 

The P5 ‘car’ is classed as a motorcycle therefore a motorcycle licence and helmet is required but Elio are understood to be looking at ways around this. It might be difficult to convince people to buy one if they have to wear a helmet inside the cabin. 

CEO Paul Elio is hoping to start deliveries of the P5 towards the end of the next year. Here, at Sell Your Jamjar, we are certainly looking forward to seeing one out on the UK roads.
