    How about this concept for inexpensive drop trailer Mobile Elio Stores. No expensive real estate, mall space remodel, or rental cost. A fleet of Mobile drop trailer Elio Stores that could move/rotate from location to location efficiently with a limited number of Retail Sales employees.

    At the rate Elio is progressing, the Service Department could look like this:

    Maybe the Elio will be so reliable that's the only service department we'll even need!

    I wouldn't let Pep Boys, Costco, Jiffy Lube, Walmart, etc...work on my lawn mower, let alone my Elio.

    I agree 100%. However, what's troubling for me is that EM has total confidence in Pep Boys as their Servicing Partner of choice.

    You would have to believe that Pep Boys would be interested enough to implement training for a few select employees. The Elio will be a unique application of accessories and maintenance. Other than that the Elio only needs a store front service door.

    There is nothing complicated about the ELIO.
    Training would be minimal. Basically it would be when to do what.

    Someone asked about the Configurator page being updated since the main page had been changed.
    Well I went and asked about it, and this is the response I got:

    Nice changes to the website, but I'm (we're) wondering when we're going to see some changes that you had talked about in the past to the configurator. Like the leather seats, and the other options that have been talked about. It's been a rather long time since anyone has seen any changes at all in that area.

    Hey Coss,
    The configurator is on the back burner right now, but not forgotten. We are working on making it better and more comprehensive but will not be public for a while.

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

    Thank you,
    The Elio Team

    So it's being worked on, but it's not very high on the priority list.
    Oh well, at least the main page looks good.
