Start up transportation company Elio Motors will attend the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, AZ from Jan. 12 to Jan. 19 to showcase their 84 mpg, three-wheel vehicle. The vehicle will be stationed at the main entrance of the internationally distinguished and widely popular auction, which caters to car owners and automotive enthusiasts with the sale of automobiles, trucks, motorcycles and other collector's items. Over 200,000 spectators are expected to attend the event, which includes various auctions, fashion shows, demonstrations and more.

“We have been fortunate to build solid relationships with top automotive suppliers in the industry and work toward our mission of providing a vehicle that is made from proven technology,” says Paul Elio, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for Elio Motors. “From Cooper Tires, to Irvin and every supplier in between, our company has partnered with only the best to create a safe and efficient vehicle that puts a fresh new spin on transportation.”

Elio Motors has a blue chip supplier partner list who have been instrumental to the success of the transportation company thus far. This list includes: Altair, IAV, NEWTECH 3, Comau, Continental, Henkel, Admiral Tool, Technosports Creative, Cooper Standard, Dakkota Lighting Technologies, LCC, Detroit Thermal Systems, Eastern Catalytic, Guardian, Mando Corporation, JNM Tool & Manufacture Inc., Kiekert, Lear Corporation, Peterson Spring, Plastics Research Corporation, Superior Roll Forming, and Takata in addition to previously mentioned suppliers Cooper Tires and Irvin.

“Attending Barrett-Jackson and presenting Elio Motors to automotive enthusiasts at this event is an exciting opportunity for our company,” Mr. Elio continues. “We are looking forward to giving attendees an inside look at our high mileage vehicle and highlighting the features made possible with the help of our globally recognized and renowned suppliers.”

Although the Elio costs only $6,800, the vehicle’s specifications are very impressive. Each vehicle comes equipped with air conditioning, heat, defrost, power windows, door lock, seat belts, tempered glass, three airbags, a windshield wiper and an AM/FM radio at no extra fee. In addition to these features, the vehicle is outfitted with an 8-gallon tank which allows drivers to travel upward of 670 miles without the need for a fill up and a Safety Management System comprised of a reinforced roll-cage, Anti-Lock Braking System and 50 percent larger crush zones than similar vehicles.

Elio Motors has also focused their attention to incorporating the latest technology concepts in their vehicle's design. The Elio’s aerodynamic body and composite panels prevent outside noises from reaching the cockpit, which will provide clear listening quality when drivers utilize future Elio electronic features such as an in-vehicle smartphone docking station.
