Los Angeles Auto Show Perfect Back Drop for P5 Introduction, Live Stream of News Conference Available to View
Tomorrow is a big day. One of the biggest in our history, as a matter of fact. At 10 a.m. Pacific Time, Elio Motors will take center stage at the Los Angeles Auto Show and introduce our next-generation prototype, the P5, to the world.
The P5 will be our first prototype to feature our own engine. Teaming with IAV, a world-renowned engine developer, we are the first vehicle start-up to build its own internal combustion engine in more than 60 years. This is one of Elio Motors’ most important strategic initiatives and is a monumental step forward in our effort to bring low-cost, highly fuel-efficient transportation to American drivers.
Los Angeles is one of the most important auto shows in the United States, if not the world. Here are a few facts:
- The Los Angeles Convention Center features 870,000 square feet of exhibit space
- More than 4,000 members of the media from 58 countries attend
- Trade Days draws more than 18,000 industry decision makers, and,
- Public Days brings in hundreds of thousands of car enthusiasts.
All the major manufacturers are there, making important announcements to the press and sharing their vehicles with the heart of the West Coast. Frankly, it’s an honor to be included in such a prestigious show.
Setting Trends Where the Trendsetters Set Trends
Of course, tomorrow’s introduction extends far beyond the LA Convention Center’s walls. And, it’s much more than just a vehicle introduction. It’s a symbol of our desire to make a positive impact on the world.
California has long been a barometer of important trends in society, fashion, technology and of course, the automotive industry. California is where trends start, and they quickly cascade throughout the country.
We are trendsetters and we are changing the world. Elio Motors has an important environmental message – we can reduce oil consumption by 0.35 percent. We have an important economic message – we will create good manufacturing jobs and we will provide low-cost transportation that can help the unemployed get to potential jobs.
All these are positive trends that can change the world, so it makes to shine a light on them in California, where so many important trends get their start.
We Wish You Could Be There…
As an Elio Motors fan, we’d love to have you there with us physically. Obviously, that’s not feasible. Here’s the next best thing – a link to the live stream of Paul Elio’s news conference. If you hit the link right now, it will take you to our video gallery and the Alter the Course video. As of 10 a.m.Pacific Time tomorrow, however, you’ll be able to listen in to Paul’s remarks as they happen.
And you’ll get to see one of the most important moments in our history. We hope you will join us!
