Elio Motors Tour goes to Portland

Elio Motors Tour goes to Portland

Hello Elio’ers! As promised, we made a swift return to Oregon.  We spent last weekend at the Washington Square Mall in Portland.

Futureliowners continue to keep us guessing with what form of transportation they use to commute.  Better yet, what they show up in for an Elio event!   Lauren, Karen, and Matthew flew their Cessna to Portland, Oregon from Coeur d’Alene Idaho to see us.  Now that’s dedication!

They took the weekend off from their family owned and operated business to see their future Elio in person.  Matthew has had his pilot’s license for two years now. We suspect the cockpit-like seating and aerodynamics of the Elio really made sense to him.  Although, if you ask Matthew, he’ll tell you it’s the engineering, price point, engine and fuel economy that really impressed him.   Young Lauren looks forward to having one of the first Elio’s in her town.  Karen really likes the innovative styling and the fact that it handles the snow with its front wheel drive.  Karen is also quick to mention her Elio will be Tardis Blue (a Dr. Who reference for all of the fans out there) with a decal on the outside that says “It’s Bigger on the Inside,” which speaks to that infamous “ah ha” moment when our fans experience the Elio in person.  We appreciate her humor!  Matthew made their reservation toward the end of 2014, and after inspecting the size and feel of the P4, is looking forward to their family’s newest commuter.
