 As anyone who has followed Elio Motors closely over the past couple years knows, funding has been one of our biggest challenges. Like any good fisherman, we’ve kept a lot of lines in the water. Well, we’re happy to report that following the success of the 506(c) offering, we had yet another big hit.

On June 19, we launched a crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine.com. Our “testing the waters” effort has been incredibly successful, incredibly quickly. We’ve already surpassed $17 million in expressed interest from nearly 5,000 investors. Should these non-binding indications of interest turn into actual investment in Elio Motors, we will be 68 percent of the way to our $25 million goal.

We’re always looking for ways to innovate and the crowdfunding initiative was a perfect fit. It’s made possible by recent changes to the 2012 JumpStart Our Business Start-up (JOBS) Act, which in part made it easier and more cost effective for start-up companies to go after non-accredited investors.

Now, about that $25 million that we are in process of raising…how will it be used?  Back in March, a similar initiative was used to fund the upcoming P5 prototype. The latest funds from this campaign will be used to develop the P6 through P30 for a variety of testing and validation. It’s a critical milestone for us as part of our march toward production and this latest round of funding will help us get there!

As the name of this newsletter suggests, Elio Motors continues to gather Momentum. This investment initiative has given us significant forward motion. Paul, being an engineer at heart, is a huge fan of Sir Isaac Newton and now believes we are experiencing Newton’s Law. To paraphrase, “an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by an equal or opposite force.”

We intend to stay in motion, moving relentlessly toward production and the results of this crowdfunding initiative are a big part of our current velocity!
