Elio Motors, whose three-wheeled car is perpetually “18 months away from market,” has released its body framing and engine cradle design information to key suppliers as a first step towards crash testing. The design specs mean that suppliers can tailor their parts to match the Elio’s specifications so that prototypes can be built for crash safety, wind tunnel observation, and readiness evaluation for manufacture.
Finalizing the design of the body framing and engine cradle were critical to the development of components for the Elio, the company says. Elio has promised body panel design specs to be released later this month.
