This Stop – Norfolk, VA
Hello Elio’ers! We’re still on the East Coast, just a little further north now. We traveled up from Florida to show the P4 at the MacArthur Center mall in Norfolk, VA. We had a great crowd and were honored to have a lot of military personnel in attendance as Naval Station Norfolk was close by. We made quite the spectacle in the mall and employees there even took notice.
Take, for instance, Cheryl. She heard of the Elio for the first time this weekend and was very intrigued by the look of it. She rushed over during her lunch break to take pictures of what she described the Elio as, “a sports-car motorcycle.”
Aaron also found out about the Elio at the mall. He was walking by and stopped in the booth for a while as he pieced together just how impactful the Elio can be in the United States. When asked what piqued his interest the most he said, “It’s fun and definitely unique, with great gas mileage.”
After the mall, the tour team headed west to Ruckersville, VA to prepare for a symposium with US insurance companies at the Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Elio will be introduced to leaders of the industry tomorrow, but the event will be closed to the public. If you’re in the Virginia-area and didn’t get the chance to see us in Norfolk, we recently added a mall stop in Richmond, VA for this weekend. We’ll be at Stony Point Fashion Park during their hours Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Hope to see you there!
