It’s Electric! an EV test drive event (and public-private partnership)
On September 19th, 2021, Healey Brothers will be offering test drives in their All-Electric Hyundai Kona, Ford Mach-E, and Chevy Bolt at the Elks Lodge in Beacon, located at 900 Wolcott Avenue. The special event will be held from 10am-1 pm, hosted by Healey Brothers, Sustainable Hudson Valley, and other local climate and sustainability groups.
In conjunction with this special program, Healey Brothers is offering a $500 incentive toward any electric vehicle purchased or leased from them through December 31. They will also donate $10 for every test drive to Sustainable Hudson Valley (SHV), a local non-profit dedicated to speeding up our progress against climate change to create communities where people and nature thrive.
SHV announced that it has formed a public-private partnership to make it easier and more affordable to switch to an electric vehicle. The communities of Marbletown, Beacon, Philipstown, and Orange County have joined SHV and the Healey Brothers chain of car dealerships to bring Electric Vehicle education and group purchase incentives to local residents and neighboring communities. Also sponsoring the event are the Beacon Conservation Advisory Committee, Green Beacon Coalition, Sustainable Putnam, and Climate Smart Phillipstown.
