As you read this article, just remember, people laughed at Henry Ford, too, when Ford said he wanted to make a motorized vehicle that anyone could afford to buy.
More than 100 years later, Paul Elio has the same dream.
While Ford's Model T had four wheels, Elio's car has three -- two in front, and one in the back. And the car will seat only two people, but not side by side. The passenger seat is directly behind the driver's seat.
That configuration, Elio says, largely explains the car's eye-popping fuel economy of about 84 miles per gallon on the highway.
