3-wheeled vehicle to be sold in U.S.

PHOENIX, AZ (WFIE) -

It may look strange but it may be worth considering if you're in the market for a new car.

Elio Motors claims its three-wheel vehicle gets 84 miles per gallon on the highway and sells for a base price of $6,800.

The two-seat car, which doesn't have a name yet, is powered by a three-cylinder, 55 horsepower engine.

Company execs say they've been able to keep the price of the car down by keeping the design and features simple, and by using parts made by established automobile suppliers.

Elio plans to release the car in the U.S. in September 2015.
