Balloon Fiesta | Elio Motors Tour

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is like a life sized version of Candy Crush Saga!  Cheering crowds hail the launching of their favorite balloons into the desert morning sunrise.  Sponsored events like the Krispy Kreme Glow tell you that folks will still be looking for something to do long after the giants have set sail.  That’s when the Elio Motors Tour Team springs into action!  Thousands of pilgrims circle back to take a closer look at the Elio to learn how they can reserve one of their own.  Of course our Elio Product Specialists are more than delighted to explain the virtues of a 3-wheel design, coupled with awesome MPG (up to 84 MPG) and a low sticker price (set $7,300* base price).  Of course with this crowd, its all about the colors too!


Thank you Albuquerque for nine days of perfect weather, the friendliest people, and one of the most amazing shows on Earth!  As we look forward to next year, here’s a look back at our week:





Meet “All In” Elio enthusiast Bob from Rio Rancho, with his daughter Christine and wife Beth.   They’ve been listening to Bob rant about the merits of the Elio and came to see it for themselves.   Beth is impressed, and says its probably about time to reserve one for herself.  Now Christine will have two Elios to choose from!


At 6’10”, the only looming question is, “Hey, how’s the weather up there?” Noooo, it’s “will I fit?”  Indeed, there’s headroom to spare for tall drivers in the Elio!  Even with our 5’9” Glenda in the passenger seat.


A candid shot and fond farewell on our last day at Balloon Fiesta!  Come meet Glenda and our team of Product Specialists this week in Las Vegas for the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction.  Please visit our event calendar for more information.
