  • Echo Automotive (ECAU) Crushes The Hybrid Vehicle Competition 8 comments
    Jan 25, 2013 6:21 PM | about stocks: F, GM, TM, ECAU

    In just a few weeks, the big car manufacturers like Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F), General Motors Company (NYSE:GM) and Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE:TM) are about to see why investors have been so bullish on the penny stock of Echo Automotive, Inc. (OTC:ECAU).

    While the Prius made an impact on the consumer market, there's a new technology that Echo Automotive has perfected which turns any fuel driven vehicle into a semi-hybrid. That solution is called EchoDrive... the technology currently being tested (and about to be mass produced) by the Company which is targeting the Fleet Industry, aka the work trucks that service the U.S. like FedEx, UPS, Joe's Plumbing, etc.

    Shares of ECAU stock have already risen over 100% after having an impressive Friday, leading all other OTC listed penny stocks, with $17,647,146 in dollar volume on 10,748,320 shares traded.

    AimHighProfits first uncovered ECAU stock back when it was trading at just $0.74 when researching how this automobile drivetrain adds a battery-powered electric motor to traditional combustion engine - as an after-market piece of equipment - thus making a wide variety of vehicles 'hybrids', by definition. Instead of the costly manufacturing of other hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Motor Prius and Ford Motor Company's Fusion, Echo Automotive has a real shot with their "bolt-on and go" feature at changing how fleet industry vehicle manufacturers look at fuel-saving research and design.

    Echo Automotive announce on Thursday that they are working on commercializing the bolt-on drive system, the EchoDrive, which is first taking aim at the small fleet (5 trucks or less) market. That's a market currently made up of 6.2 million vehicles, which is more than enough to keep ECAU busy for several years.

    Only time will tell, actually the first week of March to be exact, if the system is received well by the fleet industry leaders in attendance at the National Truck and Equipment Association trade show scheduled to be held in Indianapolis, Indiana March 6-8, 2013.

    While it might appear to be inconsequential to those not so familiar with hybrid electric vehicles, for those who have their finger on the pulse of demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, it's a huge deal. For those that trade penny stocks, getting the alert at $0.74 on ECAU from AimHighProfits was a huge deal as well.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Sounds good, but how do we distinguish this from a pump & dump?

    Total scam. There is no such thing as a "bolt on" electric motor that can be attached. Automotive manufacturers spend years designing vehicles, you would think they would have already thought through this. If they havent, they would have already bought this POS out. Mark my words, this stock is nothing but PR and gimmicks to make the management rich so they can have a nice lifestyle. In 2 years, it will be back to 2cents where it belongs, dragging many poor newbie investors into the no shirt land

    Rubbish. You can't simply "bolt on" to the drivetrain.

    you (PabloPicker): "In 2 years" ? Try in two months "

     

    I agree with you, Pablo. It won't take 2 years, only 2 months. Already well upon it's way.

    So it all comes down to is this -
    This company business model is based on "Wishful thinking" and imagination. That combined with hefty salaries and PR steam is what makes this company unique. Now, they will continue to strike deals with companies like Mieneke or even Jiffy lube and fantasize about all the business they could have in the future based on that vivid imagination. As for revenue or even profit of even one cent, they will not be able to make without accounting shenanigans. I wouldnt buy this stock if I didnt have toilet paper to wipe myself with.

    Hybrid plugin cars and electric cars are quite beneficial than the fuel driven cars. These cars will never costs you more in expenses than the fuel cars. Fuel cars will costs you more in terms of expenses. It is because the costs of fuels are more these days. A semi-hybrid car also better than other fuel cars.
