This Stop – New York International Auto Show (Part II)!
Hello Elio’ers! We’re coming to you from the largest attended and longest running auto show – the New York International Auto Show. If you’ve been online in the past week, you know that we’ve been very busy. We’re a hit, getting coverage from big media outlets such as The New York Times, FOX CT, Mother Nature Network, Upstart Business Journal and more. See the full list on the media section of our website.
We were even selected to participate in the Opening Ceremony of the show, where only 13 vehicles out of the nearly one thousand at the event paraded through the entrance (watch it on our Instagram page).
Standing out in a big way at a show with loads of vehicles over the $100,000 mark is very exciting. Automotive companies are definitely taking notice too. Here’s one interaction we found particularly interesting on Twitter…
Paul Elio kicked off events at our booth with a press conference discussing the milestones of the Elio project. Dozens of national reporters confirmed their attendance and showed up in full force to ask questions for the duration of the allotted time. In addition to the price and mileage combination that piqued their interest, the story of the first American gas-powered automotive start-up in over 100 years certainly grabbed their attention. Watch it on our YouTube channel.
Our booth has been consistently packed throughout the event with futureliowners who traveled just to see the Elio and event-goers hearing of our one, “wait two seater?!” for the first time. We should really consider getting a large sign that points out the existence of the back seat, but it would take away the joy of seeing the excitement on people’s faces when they realize there is even more than meets the eye.
If you’re planning on making it to the Javits Center, we are in section 1B near the Clean Air Test Track. If you won’t be able to make it, be sure to follow us on social media. We’ll keep you updated on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+!
