This Stop – New York International Auto Show (Part III)!
Hello Elio’ers, it’s a wrap at our first auto show! It was a success. Our booth held a steady crowd, we had plenty of media coverage, and Paul Elio was on hand to answer questions and sign a few autographs. The biggest challenge of the week was for the NYIAS Information Booth because they had to repeatedly answer the same question, “Where can I find the Elio?” Needless to say Elio Motors draws an enthusiastic crowd wherever we go so they were definitely happy to have us there!
Some people came from afar to see us (like Joanne from the Adirondack Mountains) and some were hearing about us for the first time. We definitely grabbed their attention with a different design way under the high six figure mark commonly seen around NYIAS. We captured the opinions of show goers in the booth. We’ll have a video out soon, but here’s a sneak peek…
“I live in the Adirondacks. We drive an hour to get to the store. The Elio would be a hit up there.” – Joanne
“It’s the ‘people’s’ car.” – Brandon
“I found out I went to the same school as Paul, later on, after I made my reservation.” – Andrew
Check out what the media thought of the Elio too…

“‘Elio Motors was founded to make a difference in some very important things,’ [Paul Elio] says. Those things include support for US manufacturing, reducing dependency on oil, job creation and export.” – Motoring
