Happy Friday Elio’ers! Baseball might be our nation’s official pastime, but it’s generally understood that football has emerged as the most popular sport in the country. If you happen to enjoy football, you’re in luck as the NFL’s preseason has officially kicked off and the start of college football is just around the corner. Preseason just isn’t as entertaining as when the games actually make a difference in the standings, but the fact that football is back is enough for many football fans. Public service announcement for those of you that enjoy fantasy football: Now is the time to hit the books and identify the sleeper pick that will allow you to emerge victorious!
As you can probably imagine, we receive quite a bit of feedback about the design of the vehicle. For this, we are grateful, and the feedback that we receive from fans has made a difference! One common piece of feedback we hear is “Why not put two wheels in the rear of the vehicle, making it a four-wheel car?” It’s definitely an interesting thought, but we believe that 3 is actually greater than 4.
Math aside, here is how we believe 3>4
Our three-wheel configuration saves Elio owners in a multitude of ways. For one, having three wheels as opposed to four makes the vehicle more affordable because fewer components result in less costs. One fewer wheel results in a more affordable vehicle for Elio owners. Also, our three-wheeled designation means we will be insured as a motorcycle, further saving Elio Motors customers.
We’ve all been there. You’re sitting in stop-and-go traffic, gritting your teeth and punching your steering wheel as you watch vehicles sail by in the HOV lane. As the Elio will be classified as either an autocycle or motorcycle, you’ll be able to join the serenity of the HOV lane. Not only that, but you won’t have to negotiate what you’re playing on the radio, like some in the carpool lane, because you can cruise the diamond lane by yourself (or have much easier access to the radio…).
Fads seem to work their way into just about every industry. Remember those silver, sleek flip phones that only a decade ago were the epitome of cool? It goes without saying that fads come and go with an impressive frequency. The Elio has many unique features, but one of the most recognizable is our three-wheeled configuration. Our configuration is unique and timeless. With front wheel drive, traction and stability control, and the Elio Safety Management System the Elio can be unique and timeless without having to sacrifice safety.
Mathematicians may disagree, for now, but we firmly believe that in terms of the Elio, 3 is greater than 4. Our configuration makes the vehicle more affordable, saves time in the HOV lane, and makes for a distinct vehicle.
Thanks for your support and have a great weekend!
