Elio Motors will show the latest version of its high-efficiency trike-like vehicle, the P5, at the Los Angeles Auto Show on Nov. 19, the company has announced.

Originally slated to launch in the middle of 2016, the company has now pushed back the date to late 2016. The P5 is engineered to attain a highway mileage rating of up to 84 mpg with an expected base price of $6,800. The vehicle is powered by a 0.9L, three-cylindar engine.

The company has partnered with IAV automotive engineering to develop the P5’s engine. The vehicle will offer a top speed of over 100 mpg and will go from 0 to 60 mph in 9.6 seconds.

Elio will show the vehicle in the South Hall Atrium of the Los Angeles Convention Center during the auto show.
