This Stop – Barrett-Jackson West Palm Beach!

This Stop – Barrett-Jackson West Palm Beach!

Hello Elio’ers, the tour team was in sunny Florida this past weekend for Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions and boy, was it a hot one.  Not just because of the weather (which stayed around 90 degrees the entire time, with some intense thunderstorms), but the Elio once again attracted a big crowd.  Florida is one of the top three states where our reservation holders reside, so close to a hundred futureliowners came out to visit the tour team and sit in the vehicle they will soon be driving.  Plus, we had constant foot traffic given we were located between the two main aisles at the show. Attendance set new records this time around in West Palm Beach, reaching their last year’s numbers by the afternoon of the second day.

Meet Steven and Trish, $1,000 all-in reservation holders which means they get an actual number of their spot in line… 10,477 to be exact.  They came to see us on Saturday to get a feel for the Elio, which they plan to take out West once it arrives.  Steven first heard about the Elio online and loved how it’s different look stood out on the screen.  The more research they did, the more intrigued they both became.  When asked what their favorite feature on the Elio is, they both agreed it is that the Elio will get up to “84 MPG.”
