Once I make a reservation, how long before I get my Elio?

We are limiting reservations to our first year estimated capacity so that everyone that reserves a vehicle will have one in the first year of production. Once you make a reservation to lock up a spot – you’re next on the list to receive one. Here is the order that the reservation holders will get their vehicles:

  • All-in $1000
  • All-in $500
  • All-in $250
  • All-in $100
  • I Want In $1000
  • I Want In $500
  • I Want In $250
  • I Want In $100

    We offer both a refundable and a nonrefundable reservation. For the nonrefundable reservation the terms and conditions were written to make sure that you know that your reservation is nonrefundable. We chose to be very honest and transparent with you in that the reservation money you give to us is going to be used in the production of the Elio vehicle. We are offsetting your risk with the opportunity to be first in your neighborhood to own one of these exciting vehicles, a 50% increase in your reservation amount to be used at the time of purchase, and the chance to be an early part of an American company.

    We do offer a second option- a refundable reservation. While these reservations are refundable, these reservationists will fall into place behind all other nonrefundable reservations. Refundable reservationists do not receive the additional discount offered by Elio Motors ($50 off for every $100 reservation, up to $500). The person who has a $100 nonrefundable reservation will get their vehicle before the person with the refundable $1000 reservation. Also, we are tracking our $1000 nonrefundable reservationists by giving them a place in line. Everyone else's numbers are subject to change therefore a number assignment is not possible.
