In early August, Heritage Toyota Scion was part of an electric vehicle demonstration at the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation in Burlington, Vermont. VEIC invited a handful of local dealerships with electric vehicle options in order to educate the public on the EVs available, how to make the switch to electric, and how to maintain an EV.
Salesperson, Mason Maltais , and shop foreman, Ryan Holland answered questions on two Prius Plug-ins provided by Heritage Toyota Scion. Other EVs on display included the Chevrolet Volt provided by Shearer Chevrolet, Nissan Leaf from Freedom Nissan, Mitsubishi i from Burlington Mitsubishi, and a Tesla Roadster from a Vermont resident’s personal collection.
Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger were among the crowd of over 200 people who attended the event. Although it was scorching hot outside, the attendants stayed cool with free scoops from Ben & Jerry’s, and air conditioned test drives.
VEIC hosted a great informational event and we’re glad to have participated.
