Carbon fiber panels
Advanced carbon-fiber construction helps the ELF lead the way in 21 st-century transportation. The weight savings of carbon fiber panels increase the ELFs range while offering stability improvements: carbon fiber is 10 times stronger than steel. It is preferred in aviation and aerospace for the same reasons we use it: ultra-light weight, rigidity, and durability. Our carbon-fiber panels are vacuum infused with polyester resin for UV-protection and weather-resistance. A special blend of aluminum-coated fibers and carbon-fibers allows us to offer carbon-fiber panels in a variety of colors.
Generous Rear Storage Compartment
The trunk offers more than 87 liters of space to keep your stuff and a locking lid to keep your stuff secure. That’s enough room for 6 full bags of groceries. The center locking console can hold smaller items safely.
Rugged Continental Town & Country tires in the front offer extremely high-mileage, superb puncture-resistance, stability, traction, and safety. These all-weather tires help you maneuver the daily route to the grocery store while sticking to the road in inclement weather. The rims are made in the USA.
