Drivers in Eagle, Garfield and Pitkin counties will again get a chance to “rEV up” their ride and benefit from discounts on the purchase or lease of a plug-in electric vehicle. Colorado electric co-op Holy Cross Energy sponsors this program, which runs until October 31. Last year’s EV sales event led to sales of 42 plug-in electric vehicles.
Six dealerships across Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction participate in the sales event, offering $515 to $1,950 discounts on plug-in electric/gasoline hybrid models and plug-in, all-electric vehicles. Consumers can also combine these discounts with Colorado’s $5,000 Innovative Motor Vehicle income tax credit and a federal tax credit of up to $7,500.
