To get my ELF to cover 20-30 miles on a charge I run it at about 15 MPH instead of full speed at 22+_. I also pedal but not super hard and that makes it seem to go forever. I have a free website where many owners share how they drive and other mods on the ELF. check our site www.ELFowners.webs.com
Jiminy StAck--Great to hear about your Elf. However, can you please elaborate on how with the Elf's 14 mile range you go "20-30 mile trips and commute 22 miles" Are you peddling hard, running out of juice, stopping to recharge?? SUP with all that?
Thanks for info.
At $4,000 this alternative means of transportation is a can't-miss thing. The more I investigate the Elf the more ready I am to buy one. What are the financing options?
It even improves health care. Many people don't get exercise and with the ELF you can get as much or little as you want and have fun.
We are well known with our current transportation system; around the whole world we have found a better and modern transportation system. Especially in European and American continent we have found best transportation system; therefore they used to bring different types of variations in their transportation system like; organic transit system, environment friendly transit system and many other. It helps to reduce the affects of environment pollution and also increases the concept of organic transit. I hope it will be the best ever step to deal with the current environmental pollution.
For reasons I don't understand, this drive-in shows first run pictures.
I liked deece story muchísimo, sez mi muchacho.
I don't see how they can stay in business much longer, even though they have made cutbacks. Compared to 25 years ago, there are hardly any cars in the parking lots these days.
you should manufacture it here in Elkhart Indiana we have boat and rv builders here with fiberglass skills and plenty of empty factories. we need new energy type production here come on over.
I recently got my ELF and love it. The most efficient and useful vehicle I have ever owned. I also have a Nissan LEAD but as Rob says on a few mile commute do we really need a full sized car. I do many 20-30 mile trips and commute to work 22 miles each way. It's more fun than any of my other bicycles.
Lots of people flag me down to ask about it, take pictures as they drive by and give the ElFan thumbs up. It's not me in the ELF that is the star. As much attention as a Tesla S. I call it my M&M mini micro .
The Durham Bike Co-op is mentioned twice: in the story itself and in the sidebar.
No mention of the Durham Bike Co-op? File under "Glaring Omissions"...
Hi David. Some great photos of Alix and her goats at http://lissagotwals.photoshelter.com/galle… and info on what The Goat Patrol business was https://www.facebook.com/pages/Goat-Patrol… and http://www.indyweek.com/triangulator/archives/2009/07/28/carrboro-turns-to-goats-for-poison-ivy-answer.
Great story, but what's a " a goat-patrol concern"?
There are some really cool shots in there, D.L. NIce work.

How I would like one of these things. I've wanted an electric car for a long time and it's still very expensive and I still want solar electric on my house which is also very expensive. Darn.
This is an amazing story. I predict this thing will sell like the proverbial hotcakes. Just wait till somebody interviews Seinfeld on TV. The best part is it's made in NC. I want one.
