Kalamazoo and Indianapolis | Elio Motors Tour

Let’s be honest… when faced with the choice to fight the holiday traffic or stay local and do an event at Pancheros in Kalamazoo, MI., the vote was unanimous.  Hand-crafted burritos can entice any traveler to make a pit stop and give pause between bites to the merits of a high-mileage, low cost, highway ready vehicle.  The P5 served up the smiles, Mother Nature brought the sunshine and Elio enthusiast Stu Sutherland’s staff smothered it all in a velvet queso. Perfect!


It was a one day event, so folks could get back to more pressing matters like family and honoring our military members who served our great country.  After a backyard bbq of our own, the team packed up and headed out to Indianapolis to meet an over-whelming number of enthusiastic Elio followers.  


Ludmilla, #51 first read about the Elio in a newspaper article and told her husband Bob she wanted one.  At over 54,000 reservation holders to date, she says “we’re still believers to this day!  It’s just cute and it’s MY toy and only mine.  What’s $6800?”  She has a list of options she’ll be adding to her Elio, but changing the Red Hot won’t be one of them.  We agree, the color sure looks good in person!


Max and Nina (a 2x published poet at Barnes and Noble) caught a glimpse of the Elio in a commercial last December.  They love the efficiency, unique look, and have no doubt “it will be FUN TO DRIVE!”  This petite little 85 yo says “it just fits me!”   We think rally stripes would fit her personality too! :)

Thank you to everyone who came from near and far (Dane, from Alaska….we’re talking to you) just to get personal with the P5.  We appreciate your support, and encourage you to check the schedule regularly to see when we’ll be arriving at a town near you.
