Oct 24, 67 As I have said before I think the C-1 is a very interesting concept which I may be interested in at some point if they can get the technology sorted out and the price down to a reasonable level. They also now appear to be racing Elio Motors to production as they were supposed to enter production late this year however just a few days ago they announced a major delay.

C-1 is Lit Motors flagship vehicle. C1 is a modern evolution of gyrocar. It can self balance itself, unlike a motorcycle with help of computer controlled 2 high rpm gyro wheels located under the driver's seat. These gyros also act as generators in case of deacceleration and braking charging the battery.
C-1 is electric powered with in-wheel hub 20 kw motor in rear wheel. It achieves kmph of top speed with acceleration of in 7 seconds. Its range is estimated to be between miles on full charge to batteries.
Depending upon vehicle classification system, C-1 will be classified as motorcycle in most markets. Lit Motors is taking pre orders for C1 to be delivered by Lit Motors also plans to license its gyro self stabalizing technology to other manufacturers who would like to make more stable SUV's.
