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…
