Elio Reservations Update - Over 50,000! (50155)

It's been a long time coming but we've finally reached the 50k milestone!

When I put my deposit on the Elio sales were fairly brisk, routinely exceeding 50 per day (averaged) and often 100 per day. After September 2014, when the 50% reservation bonus was withdrawn, the reservation rate dropped remarkably, averaging mostly between 20 and 30 per day. With the recent auto shows and the commercial, sales the past few weeks have been better, seeing reservations of over 40 per day, on average. (Note that Elio reinstated the 50% reservation bonus, but the numbers never returned to the previous sales performance.)

Even though the reservation rate has slowed dramatically, I'm still confident Elio will come through. My hope is that I can pick mine up in the summer of 2017, assuming I can somehow bring it back into Canada.
