This Stop – Independence, MO!

Hello Elio’ers! Another Tuesday, another tour blog. This time, we’re coming from Independence Center in Independence, MO. Talk about excitement in the air! One reason is because for many of our futureliowners, this was the first time they were able to experience the Elio up close and personal. Then you add in the recent announcement of the fifth Elio prototype (P5) being underway and it makes for a high energy event. Speaking on behalf of the tour team, we can’t wait to show you the Elio/IAV engine in person.  Click here to get a preview of it running on the dynamometer for the first time.

We drew a big crowd, and even had an Elio fan travel 17+ hours to visit with us!



Meet Jess P. from Leesburg, Florida. He is the one that made the long trip out to Missouri. Not being a reservation holder himself (yet), he felt compelled to come and see what we’re all about sans the computer screen. He left impressed. Wouldn’t it have been nice to get up to 84 MPG on that trip?



We also met a man named Frank S. He stands at a solid 6’8″ tall. He is a native to Kansas City and a fairly new reservation holder, who questioned whether he’d actually fit inside the Elio. After trying the P4 on for size, he was more than satisfied with the room he had and expressed wanting to upgrade to the top reservation level. Another day on tour, another ecstatic Elio reservation holder!
