Elio Motors has come under fire of late with claims of its 3-wheel car being a scam, and we can understand why people would think that. Elio is doing its best to convince us that it is the real deal and have set out to alleviate those scam fears. The 3-wheeler has been dogged by setbacks, which means the company has had to push back its production and release, although this is a normal thing when starting a new project.
Why people think it is a scam – With Elio Motors being a startup this tends to raise the red flag and come to the conclusion that it is a scam; no matter what news comes out of the company it has been treated with skepticism. The thought of a three-wheeler that is light, great on milage and far cheaper than its competition would be hard to be believed, as well as the fact that deposits are being taken for a vehicle with no release date.
The thing is, people have been burned before by such claims, the Dale and Preston Tucker scams just two examples. Some of you also believe that Elio is taking far too long to get its three-wheeler into production, but you have to remember that getting everything in place does take time, but once all the pieces are in place, then production will follow quickly.
As a way for Elio to convince you and I that it is the real deal the company has decided to feature a number of news articles from some of the big players in journalism, such as the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, ABC News, Forbes and many more. Looking over these articles briefly there seems to be no mention of a scam, and if it were, then surely these publications would ask that Elio remove them for the website?
