DETROIT – Ingersoll Auto of Danbury, the largest retailer of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles in Connecticut, burnished its green credentials recently as its employees mentored students in local water-monitoring events.
Ingersoll is the first GM dealer to serve as a GM Green mentor.
“Our dealers’ customer relationships extend far beyond the showroom,” said Dan Adamcheck, Northeast regional director of Chevrolet sales and marketing. “Our Green Dealer Program recognizes their efforts to improve the local environment and engage the community.”
Employees from Ingersoll gave conservation education a boost last week by mentoring students from Reed Intermediate School in Newtown as they conducted water-quality testing in local streams.
“Participating in GM Green was a great experience and an opportunity to leave a lasting, positive impact on our community, our watershed and, most importantly, our local youth,” said Todd Ingersoll, owner of Ingersoll Auto in a statement on Tuesday.
The GM Green Dealer Program debuted in January across the U.S.
GM’s lineup of green vehicles includes the Chevrolet Volt and Chevrolet Spark EV.
Edmunds says: Since the GM Green program now includes GM dealers, you may begin to see more environmentally friendly initiatives in your local community.
