Labor Day and a Quick Catch Up!

Happy Friday Elio’ers! This weekend is bittersweet. On the one hand, the summer is coming to an end. Officially, fall doesn’t begin until September 22nd, but Labor Day Weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. On the other, a three-day weekend! Let’s look on the bright side. We get to celebrate the summer’s last hurrah, then move into football season, cooler temperatures, and pumpkin spice everything (if you’re into that kind of thing.) But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. This Monday is Labor Day, an important, yet overlooked, holiday.


Labor Day was first celebrated in 1887 as a way to honor American workers and celebrate their accomplishments. Through good times and bad, the backbone of our great nation has been the American worker. At Elio Motors, we are bullish on the American worker, which is why we are committed to creating American jobs. American manufacturing jobs have been disappearing for the last few decades, and that needs to change. We plan on creating jobs not just at our manufacturing home just outside of Shreveport in the Caddo Parish, Louisiana, but all over the country. This weekend, make sure to take a moment to appreciate the American worker!

Did you have a chance to read this week’s Momentum? In case you don’t know, we’re going to offer options a little bit different than your average vehicle manufacturer. Instead of making you pick an expensive option package, loaded with options you don’t want and won’t use, we will let you pick the options you want. We call it ePlus: My Elio. My Way. Earlier this year we launched the first version of our configurator, which gives future Elio Motors customers an idea of how they will personalize their vehicle. This week’s Momentum took a look at some of the most popular options as chosen by folks who have already used the configurator, as well as some of the new additions.


One question keeps coming up: “Why don’t I see cruise control on the configurator? Cruise control is a must have!” Well, we agree with you, and you are in luck! Cruise control will come as standard equipment in the Elio — good for long trips and for your lead foot.

If you don’t see an option on the configurator, don’t sweat. We will continue to add options every month, so make sure to check the configurator regularly. Here’s the link.

What do you have planned on Wednesday, September 7th, at 2 PM Eastern? If you’re free, we suggest you check out Paul Elio’s presentation at the 5th Annual Gateway Conference presented by Liolios. The conference brings revolutionary companies, top investors, and renowned analysts together. If you can’t get free during that time, no worries! We hope to have the video available on-demand as soon as possible after the event. Stay tuned. But, there’s nothing like watching something live, so if you can make it, here’s the link.
