$24,000 for the C-1 is the target price but Lit Motors is publishing no intended delivery dates that I could find.

The Elio concept is intriguing but like all these potentially producable better mouse traps it lacks adequate investment capital to go forward. Their equity crowd funding under Regulation A is supposed to gear up this month. They all have the pitch that they could be the next Tesla at bargain prices to both the investor and the consumer, and production could begin soon with just a bit more seed money. Right...
For example the C-1's dependance on electronic systems for stability and safety create product liability issues that mandate a high level of reliability. This isn't cheap nor quick to develop and de-bug with a high level of confidence. Same is true for the redundant and back-up failsafe systems too. A failure rate of even a one in a million for an un-commanded side strut deployment in the middle of a curve is unacceptable. Whoa,call the lawyers!
De-bugging a good idea well enough to take to market is often harder than developing and patenting the original idea. I do like these innovations though.
