NY state auto dealers driving EV infrastructure investments

A new study by the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA) shows that local franchised new car dealers are driving the adoption of electric vehicles in towns and cities across metro New York. In the past twelve months alone they have installed nearly 300 new charging stations helping to create a unique local charging network for their customers. GNYADA also reported that car buyers received $18.4 million in New York State Drive Clean rebates last year helping to increase new electric vehicle sales by 98% in metro New York. Electric vehicle data was collected for the first time and integrated into GNYADA’s full 2022 Economic Impact Report.

“Local area dealerships are playing a critical role in the adoption of electric personal and commercial transportation. New York State has mandated that all new vehicles sold are electric by 2035, and local franchised dealerships are the solution to keeping that commitment. Metro New York’s franchised new car dealers are expected to collectively invest more than $400 million in the next two years in new EV charging station infrastructure, employee training and sophisticated special equipment,” said Mark Schienberg, Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association president.

“Dealers are also preparing their workforce for this new technology by training and recruiting men and women to meet the changes coming. New EV models will be hitting the market every year. In 2022 alone, electric vehicle models increased by 52% from the prior year,” continued Schienberg.
