A car company is about to release a new high milage car at a low price.

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

The two seat car, which Elio hasn't named, is powered by a 3 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 automotive suppliers.

Elio plans to release the car in the united states in September of 2015.
