      New car company expects big things in a little package

      With climbing gas prices, having a car that gets 84 mpg doesn't sound like a bad idea.

      Although it seems too good to be true, it might not be after next summer. That's actually the gas mileage of a new car called the Elio.

      The three-wheeled automobile is being completely constructed in the United States with American parts. And you won't believe the ticket price: only $6,800.

      â??We wanted to create an opportunity for American ingenuity to shine again,â?? said Chip Stempeck, VP of Marketing for Elio Motors. â??Stop all of our fuel from being burned in our cars and all the money going overseas.â??

      The Elio is expected to hit showrooms at the end of summer 2014.
