This Stop – Denver, CO!

This Stop – Denver, CO!

Hello Elio’ers!  We hope you had a great 4th of July weekend.  We know we did.  The tour team celebrated our Nation’s independence near Denver at the Bandimere Speedway.  We held two events  – one with free admission on the 3rd, and the other on the 4th during the races.  Bandimere pulled out all of the stops for the holiday.  The races were incredible with jet cars running the quarter mile around the 6 second mark and then the day closed out with a huge fireworks show.  The event was definitely a success and we fit right in with our American Made credentials.

When people see us for the first time, some wonder where such a unique-looking car could come from.  They joke, asking if it’s from another planet.  Imagine their shock when we tell them it’s from their very own country.  We know these people were psyched…

Our unique look brings us a ton of attention, but what keeps everyone engaged is our commitment to Elio Motors’ 4 “must haves”.  Take for instance, Abby and Daniel.  They were not familiar with Elio Motors, but as they walked by the booth, Abby insisted they stop to see the bright orange car that grabbed her attention.  Daniel didn’t mind, especially after he got a rundown on the gas mileage (up to 84 MPG) and production location (U.S.A.).  Neil, a member of the tour team, then asked Daniel to ballpark the targeted price of the Elio.  Daniel replied, “I’d say about $50K.”  Neil quipped, “Close, $68…” (pause) “…hundred!”  And so, Daniel found his favorite ‘must have': affordability!

Adults weren’t the only people enjoying the three-wheeler.  Kids, or should we say future-futureliowners, were pretty impressed…

They posed for pictures around it…

They demanded entry…

And, made the final step in the purchase process: picking a color.
