Happy Friday Elio’ers! We all know that this is a busy time of year and there are simply not enough hours in the day to take full advantage of the summer. Between throwing and attending parties, outdoor concerts and sporting events, the summer always comes and goes in hyper speed. That being said, this week’s blog is short, sweet, and directly to the point. This week we are going to definitively answer one of the most popular questions that we receive: will the Elio come equipped with a trailer hitch?
Our vehicle is designed to do many things: provide savings for drivers at the gas pump, sail through the HOV lane, present a sensible option for solo commuters. The Elio is not, however, designed to replace an SUV or truck for trips to Home Depot. The first model of the Elio is not designed to pull a trailer, and, at this stage, we do not plan on offering a trailer hitch as an option. As we will not be offering a trailer hitch, we do not plan on offering Elio Motors trailers at this stage either.
If you’re concerned about additional storage space, fear not! Firstly, as you probably know, the back seat folds forward for additional storage space- enough to fit a set of golf clubs. We plan on offering a wide variety of options through our option program, including several different types of roof racks. Again, the Elio is not a substitute for your resident gas guzzler, but we will get creative and offer several different ways to maximize storage space.
Before we leave you to your weekend activities, we want to thank everyone that sent in their thoughts on potential retail center locations. We received some truly insightful emails, and have saved them all, so if you participated, you may be hearing from us in the future for more information. Thank you also to all those that sent in offers of help- very much appreciated!
As always, thanks for your continued support and enjoy your weekend!
