Happy Friday Elio’ers! We hope you had a tremendous Independence Day, that your ears are no longer ringing and that any burns are almost healed. Having a holiday land smack dab in the middle of a week is sort of strange: one the one hand, it felt like there were two Mondays in one week and on the other it feels like today is the second Friday of the week. We’ll call it a wash. Next year the 4th falls on a Thursday, which we much prefer. If you decided to take both Thursday and Friday off, however, it didn’t make much of a difference!
Since this is a busy weekend for many, we will keep this week’s Friday blog short, sweet, and to the point. Independence Day is a particularly important holiday to us at Elio Motors for several different reasons. First, we are unabashedly proud to be Americans and feel fortunate every day to be a part of this country. Secondly, we want to do our part. We work every single day to bring an American-made product to market and to employ Americans to build that product. The Elio is a vehicle by Americans, for Americans. It has been a long road, but one we sincerely believe is well worth the effort. Of course, we couldn’t begin to reach our goals without our supporters, for whom we are eternally grateful. Thank you for everything that you do and enjoy your freedom this weekend!
