    Will Elio be at NAIS? They have always been. Money is coming in from somewhere. I think that they should make it a priority, otherwise it would be over a year since last auto show.

    I am hoping they will be there. I was just selected as a judge for the Detroit News Readers Panel - going to NAIAS the afternoon of Jan 17. This is during the industry preview days, just before the public show..

    Would be surprised if ELIO was at NAIAS... no $$$$ for that right now. But even better than another car show are the governmental autocycle legislation efforts by Joel Sheltrown & funding focus in NYC by Paul Elio. Why not email and ask that of ELIO?

    Elio has done enough car shows. There gets a point of diminishing returns when you have to keep answering the same question a bazillion times. "When will you go into production?" The Elio crew would just need to wear T-Shirts that say, "2019" and thus, they don't have to keep being bugged. With Joel wrapping up the autocycle bills in each state, that just is a necessary step into getting that spring funding. For most, that's boring news but it is critical to the launch date of 3rd or 4th quarter of 2019.

    Just got back from the Detroit Auto Show Industry preview days. Lots of cool cars. No Elio presence, but there were 4 Polaris Slingshots on display including one with a roof. The roofed one was a tight squeeze for me and the Slingshots still seem like a fair weather vehicle. The Mercedes display also had the new 2- seater electric Smart cars which sticker for $20k (before rebate) and are likely the cheapest electrics out there.

    Dear Elio Motors,

    I suspect the answer is no but it never hurts to ask. Will Elio Motors have any presence at NAIAS' Public Show these next couple weeks at Cobo Center in downtown Detroit? I've visited in recent years and your Tour Team was in the atrium outside the main show floor area.

    Faithful yet questioning,

    Mark R., L-15820

    Hello Mark,

    Thanks for the note and you are correct, we are not planning on NAIAS in Detroit this year. The cost is simply too high for the value received in our current stage, but plan on being there in the future. Enjoy the show if you go, there are a lot of manufacturers missing this year is the rumor...

    Make sure to check out our blog at www.eliomotors.com/blog

    Thank you,
    The Elio Team

    Depends on what you consider "public function". If it's a pop up function then that would be when they were in Indiana back in May 2017.

    As for a Trade/Auto show, that would have been in January 2017.

    Other than that there were unannounced appearances of the Elio but that was in NYC and most only knew of this after the fact.

    Looks like to me it's been two years since Elio has been to a show that you didn't need to be an insider to know when it was going to happen.
