    That would be a great option. Think about it, I can;t think of anyone else that does that and Elio could be an innovator when it comes to new off the shelf technology that is a benefit for all cars with rear seats. There are many other super cheap options that Elio could do that they could easily make an easy 30% profit on by just offering it. This would be one of them.

    Hmm... a list of not-offered options that would A. be cheap to produce, B. allow for a decent profit, and C. be innovative.
    That could be a cool exercise in heating up the old thinker box.

    We have
    1. Rear seat forward looking camera/monitor. (may as well have it switch to rear view when backing up)
    2. Dual front visors or maybe two pivot points that the visor snaps in to. Pivot points on either side of the visor that are attached near the headliner like the ones in your current vehicle so you could fold it down using both, to the right by unclipping the left one and swinging it to the right or vice versa for the left side... Or, I suppose, you could remove it altogether for some reason. Hey, there could be a whole market for replaceable sun visors!
    3. What will be next? Keep it cheap.

    Navigating the Website
    November 9, 2018

    Happy Friday Elio’ers! We hope that the time change didn’t affect you too much this week and you have adjusted accordingly. Of course, Elio’ers in Arizona are feeling fine, because the time never changes in the Grand Canyon State. We also hope that you have begun preparations for Turkey Day, also known as Thanksgiving, which is only 12 days away! Preparing now will ensure that you’re not overwhelmed when the day comes. Speaking of the feeling of being overwhelmed, the internet can be a pretty difficult place to navigate. Today’s Friday Blog is going to serve as a helpful guide to navigating Elio Information!

    Information

    If you’re fairly new to Elio, a great place to start is the one-page spec sheet, which you can find here. If you can’t find an answer to your question, we suggest heading to the Support Tab on the website. Think of it as a kind of interactive FAQ. Another great way to find information is to go to our Blog page, under the Media tab, and utilize the search function on the right-hand side.

    [​IMG]

    If it’s investor information you seek, simply click the Investor tab which will take you to all relevant investor information. If you still can’t find the information you’re looking for, you can always reach out to us through email at tellmemore@eliomotors.com

    Gallery

    If you subscribe to the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” the Gallery tab is the place to be. Once you click this link, you can see we have an archive of videos that you can watch, save to watch later, and even share on social media.

    If you’re more about that still life, simply scroll down and you’ll see our image gallery. Here you can also scroll and even download the images.

    Reservations

    If you haven’t yet become a part of the Elio Motors family, you can make a reservation by clicking here. From that page, the process is pretty straightforward. If you’ve already made an All-In reservation and want to upgrade, you can click this link. Have a refundable reservation but want to upgrade? No problem! All you need to do is click here to convert,then feel free to upgrade. Have a reservation and want to make sure everything is squared away on your account? Click here to log in.

    We hope that today’s blog will make it a little easier to navigate our website and we hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    This relates back to the Elio My Way. Elio is figuring on the first 65k to have an average price of $10,700 and that’s because of options. So having the listed options on top of what Elio has is not asking for much. If you want it, then get it. Since I have been using a reverse cam as OEM integration, I’d want one on my Elio and as in racing, they use a rear cam instead of a rear view mirror due to it being safer, I’d go for that. Having cheap common sense options is an easy way for Elio to even make a few extra bucks.

    Here Are the Reservation Holders
    November 16, 2018

    [​IMG]

    Happy Friday Elio’ers! Just think, in less than one week you will have already had your Thanksgiving turkey, late-night turkey snack, and Friday morning/afternoon sandwich. That’s right- we’re less than a week away from the kickoff to the Holiday Season. We consider Thanksgiving to be one of the best holidays. Why, you may ask? Good food- check. All day football- check. Getting together with loved ones- check. Giving thanks- check. An excuse for a hearty afternoon nap- check. What’s not to love? If you’re one of the millions of Americans traveling across the country for Thanksgiving, we hope you enjoy a safe, expeditious journey.

    Speaking of “across the country,” we’ve received many questions about where, exactly, are the Elio Motors reservation holders. Generally, there are a few reasons behind this line of questioning: genuine curiosity, a desire to start regional Elio Owner clubs, and regional pride. While we don’t release all our reservation data, in the past we have looked at where the reservation holders reside. Today, we’re going to revisit this topic, with some new and insightful data.

    If you’ve missed our previous blogs on the topic, we’ve taken a look at the USA as a whole and the density of reservation holders in each state. Below, you’ll find a map that shows which states have the most reservation holders. (Note- the darker the green, the more reservation holders reside in that state)

    The Elio top ten offers some states that are predictable, with a few surprises in the mix. From number one to ten, these states are California, Texas, Florida, Arizona, Washington, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. Each of these states in the top ten have over 2,000 reservation holders! Fun fact- Alabama and Maryland have the exact number of reservation holders. If you’re from either state, now is your opportunity to break the tie! Some serious state pride is on the line.

    Now, let’s take a look at the twenty most popular Elio cities.

    [​IMG]

    Here’s the list, from number one to twenty:

    1 Phoenix 11 Orlando
    2 Houston 12 Miami
    3 Las Vegas 13 San Jose
    4 San Antonio 14 Columbus
    5 San Diego 15 Portland
    6 Austin 16 Springfield
    7 Tucson 17 Arlington
    8 Mesa 18 Albuquerque
    9 Jacksonville 19 Colorado Springs
    10 Dallas 20 Los Angeles


    There are definitely some surprises in there. We would be remiss if we didn’t give a shout out to our home state if we didn’t mention that Arizona has three cities in the top twenty!

    Let’s take it one step further. We were curious to find out the most popular first and last names of Elio reservation holders. Below, you’ll find the top ten for both.

    Top Ten First Names (including alternate spellings and nicknames i.e. Mike and Mikey for Michael) :

    1 John 6 William
    2 Michael 7 Thomas
    3 James 8 Mark
    4 Robert 9 Richard
    5 David 10 Charles


    Top Ten Last Names:

    1 Smith 6 Jones
    2 Johnson 7 Williams
    3 Miller 8 Anderson
    4 Brown 9 Taylor
    5 Davis 10 Martin


    Interestingly enough, there are over 4,000 reservation holders with a unique first name and over 23,000 that have a unique last name! No matter the state or city you hail from or the uniqueness of your name, we genuinely appreciate each and every reservation holder that has joined us on this journey.

    Thanks for your support and have a tremendous Turkey Day!

    Enough already! This useless dribble from Elio is supposed to keep us enthusiastic, but it's just pissing me off !!!! We have this forum for useless dribble.

    Elio's weekly emails should be giving us news and info, not mindless pablum. If they don't have anything worthwhile to say, then shut up and stop insulting our intelligence.

    Agreed. They announced "Just Wow!!!" and now NOTHING but a rehash of the past. If they were not able, or going to give more information on the Just Wow after announcing, why announce it at all?
