Elio Motors has developed a fleet sales division to capitalize on growing interest from rental companies, businesses and municipalities.
Elio Motors plans to launch an enclosed, three-wheeled vehicle that will retail for $6,800 and get 84 miles per gallon in 2015. This vehicle can provide cost-savings to companies and government entities that have fleets for rentals, deliveries, service calls and other travel-related needs, says the company.
Assuming a vehicle gets 25 miles per gallon and is driven 20,000 miles at $4 per gallon of gas, switching to an Elio could save a company nearly $2,250.00 annually on fuel costs, according to Elio Motors.
The fleet sales division will be headed by Brendan Carey, a former employee for ADESA auctions who joined Elio Motors in 2013.
"Interest in Elio Motors among the business community is extremely high, and rightfully so," said Paul Elio founder and CEO of Elio Motors. "As we've taken the vehicle on its 33-city nationwide tour, we are always approached by business people, rental companies and government officials who recognize they can attain significant savings converting their fleet to Elios."
Though Elio Motors launches in 2015, it is currently taking reservations.
