In 2014, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) and the Connecticut Automotive Retailers Association (CARA) announced the first ever “Connecticut Revolutionary Dealer Award,” to recognize state automobile dealers who sell or lease the highest number of electric vehicles (EVs) from February 1 – July 31, 2014. One award was presented to the dealer that sold or leased the highest number of new EVs – including plug-in hybrids – and the other was presented to the dealer who sold or leased the most EVs as a percentage of total sales during the period.
The 2014 award winners were New Country Toyota of Westport and A1 Toyota of New Haven. For more information, see the Webpage announcing the program and the Press Release announcing the winners.
