This Stop – Tukwila, WA!

This week, Elio Motors was a proud guest at the Museum of Flight in Tukwila, WA. Visitors young and young at heart could take a walk through aviation history while being “Wow’d” by the roar of the Blue Angels. It is all about aerodynamics after all, and nestled among giants like the Concorde and the Boeing 787, folks found themselves drawn to yet another engineering marvel, the Elio.




Who could resist the opportunity to check out our cockpit-like seating and envision the day when our daily commute will entail taxing down our driveways? Folks from as far as Alaska dropped by to say “hello” and visit with their future ride. Lucky for us our favorite part of being on tour is getting to know our fans.



Futureliowner Jerry with Pam Vassallo, Elio Media Relations.


Meet Jerry. He was sporting his ElioWear cap (with #143 stitched on the back) when he arrived with family from Fairbanks, Alaska to check out the Creamsicle Elio. A friend introduced Jerry to Elio Motors by sharing an Elio email he received and Jerry, along with his neighbor #206, made a reservation right away. When discussing the anticipated launch date Jerry mentioned that being a retired school principle, he is long on patience. He understands that getting in early means supporting a start-up company and his desire to be a part of American history makes it worth the wait. He says, it’s much like shaping young minds into successful adults; it takes time. Jerry believes this is the perfect vehicle for younger drivers because the seating limits the possible distractions that come with having a larger vehicle packed with rowdy passengers. Remember when we didn’t have to use seatbelts? Yikes! Elio Motors believes in automotive safety and for us it comes in seven different colors. All for an expected price of $6,800. Cruising just got a lot more safe and affordable!
