Dealership Commitment to EVs includes Educating Young Drivers
Learning to drive is an exciting and intimidating time for young people, and as electric vehicles (EVs) grow more popular, students getting behind the wheel for the first time will need to learn the ins-and-outs of high-tech EV models and how they differ from internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. Fortunately, the same local dealerships who have committed to leading America into the future are also helping its newest drivers learn more about EVs.
Committed dealers like Wood Family Dealerships in Batesville, Arkansas have stepped up to make sure young drivers know the fundamentals of EVs. Wood Family Dealerships has introduced a driver’s education course in two local school districts with a Chevrolet Bolt EV as the vehicle used in the course. While students in the course still learn about ICE vehicles, they are also getting hands-on experience on how to operate and care for the cars that will one day electrify America’s roads.
“Electric vehicles are the wave of the future,” dealership owner Scott Wood told his local news outlets, adding that it is important to expose new drivers to the benefits of EV ownership.
Dealership owners like the Wood family are the people who will organically drive the electric revolution forward. Courses like their driver’s education program that use EVs are just one of the many ways the local dealerships that are trusted by consumers are working to bring Americans one step closer to the electric future.
