Elio Motors is scheduled to appear before the Louisiana Motor Vehicle Commission today at 10am. The car company was summoned by the Commission to a meeting earlier this year to answer questions about possible state law violations, but failed to appear.

The commission believes that Elio's pre-purchase program may be violating laws against car companies selling directly to consumers.

At this time, Elio has yet to start production at the old GM plant in Shreveport and claims it is several hundred million dollars away from being able to operate.
