Happy Friday Elio’ers! Also, an early Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there. Have you bought your present yet? If your dad is a car guy, we might be able to help you out. A reservation for an Elio might just be the perfect gift. And, best of all, you can avoid a trip to the mall and buy your gift from the comfort of your home. A win-win!
In case you missed it, last week we made an announcement regarding our former Chief Operating Officer, Hari Iyer. Hari, who was a big part of the initial vehicle design and has been an integral member of the Elio Team ever since, will be moving on. Iyer is launching a new car subscription service known as YoYo, which will offer an innovative and new on-demand car subscription model. Just like Elio, YoYo is offering another alternative in affordable transportation. Hari will still be with Elio Motors as a member on our Board of Directors and as a strategic advisor for major projects like the ATVM loan. While we are sad to see him go, we are also incredibly excited for his new chapter and we wish him nothing but the absolute best going forward- good luck Hari!

This week’s Momentum covered the process of our E-Series build, which is a very exciting development and a huge step forward in our progress. We took a look at the preparation of the body panels and the powertrain for assembly. If you missed this exciting recap of our progress, click here.
Have you seen some new Elio ads lately? We recently partnered with the satirical news outlet The Onion to enter some much needed levity to the 2016 election cycle. Elio Motors has attracted fans on both sides of political spectrum, and we believe some good natured humor can help find some common ground in these polarized times.

But, wait, there’s more! If you’re like a lot of our fans, you can’t get enough of new videos showing the P5. videos. Well, you’re in luck. Here’s the link to a never-before seen video that shows the P5 in action. Please feel free to share with friends and family!
Thanks for your support and Happy Father’s Day!
