In a recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Elio has stated that production is not expected to begin until the fourth quarter of 2019 . Come on, really, Elio?

I mean, they raised MILLIONS of dollars through crowdfunding and other forms of investment , yet they have accumulated over $145 MILLION  in debt without a single customer car being built.
