Elio Motors Tour goes to National Clean Energy Summit

Elio Motors Tour goes to National Clean Energy Summit


Hello Elio’ers!  Over the weekend, Elio Motors made a quick stop in Las Vegas for the 8th annual National Clean Energy Summit.  Nevada is leading the country in solar and geothermal markets, and has become an important hub for clean energy, advanced manufacturing technologies and data centers. The NCES examined the investments, partnerships and innovation necessary to continue this incredible momentum. (  At 84 MPG and an affordable price point, it was to be expected that Elio Motors would be included on the guest list.

Speaking of guest lists, there was a rather important person in attendance.  Some would even say he is the most powerful man in the world. We were incredibly honored to hear President Barack Obama give the keynote speech.  He shared his vision, under the new Clean Power Plan, for the continued development of a clean energy economy.  Security was obviously tight, but we are hopeful that the far-reaching buzz of a three-wheeler that is on a mission to change the world made its way to a certain someone.



The crowd listens as the keynote speaker, President Barack Obama, makes his speech.

On the road, we like to ask folks what their favorite part of the Elio Motors project is.  It’s always interesting to learn how the responses vary from state-to-state.  It usually boils down to one of these three: value, American manufacturing, and environmental impact.  Last week in Detroit, our core messaging surrounded our impact on American manufacturing.  So, this week at the National Clean Energy Summit, it’s only appropriate we focused on the Elio’s positive effect on the environment.  In an Elio, you’ll be putting far less pollutants in the air than even the most environmentally-friendly cars. Multiply that times the number of Elios projected to be sold, and America could save almost 5 billion gallons of fuel per year. All the while reducing harmful CO2 emissions by more than 90 billion pounds.  To find out more about our “green”-ness, check out our website.
