Conicelli Dealerships Give Cradles to Crayons' Spring Greening Initiative a Giant-Sized Power Boost

Conicelli employees T.J. Smith, Internet manager, and Nicole Wellington, Toyota service consultant, hold Cradles to Crayons collection bags as they welcome donations at the Conicelli Autoplex in Conshohocken.
There’s less than one week remaining for area residents to participate in the Conicelli Auto Dealerships-Cradles to Crayons’ joint Great Green Spring Clean and Drive initiative.

The program, which ends Tuesday, April 30, provides an important – and vitally needed – opportunity to repurpose children’s items that are no longer needed and put them into the hands of low-income and homeless children in our community -- helping to mitigate the acute effects of poverty while keeping the items out of landfills.

Continuing through April 30 -- in support of the joint Great Green Spring Clean and Drive initiative -- the Conicelli Autoplex on Ridge Pike in Conshohocken, which includes Conicelli Toyota Scion, Honda, Nissan and Hyundai, and the Conicelli Toyota Scion dealership on Baltimore Pike in Springfield, will serve as collection points for the donated children’s items that have been forgotten, no longer fit, have fallen out of favor, or simply were never used. Dropoff boxes are located at each location.

Further supporting the “Great Green Spring Clean and Drive” program, the Conicelli dealerships are offering an additional incentive for area families to bring the new and nearly new children’s items needed by Cradles to Crayons for the area’s vulnerable children to their Conshohocken and Springfield locations: an opportunity to test drive one of our new hybrid-, electric- or natural gas-powered cars.

Cradles to Crayons accepts items for children in need, birth through 12, including new and nearly new infants’ and children’s clothing, socks and underwear, coats, hats, footwear, newborn baby items, baby safety equipment, books, and arts and crafts/school supplies. A more detailed list of needed items (and unacceptable ones, too) is available at www.cradlestocrayons.org/philadelphia/most-needed-items.  

The Conicelli Autoplex in Conshohocken is located at 1200 Ridge Pike, in Springfield at 860 Baltimore Pike.

Cradles to Crayons is a Montgomery County-based nonprofit that provides children, 0-12, in homeless or low-income situations in the Greater Philadelphia region, with essential items to alleviate the acute effects of poverty; supplying these items year-round without charge by connecting communities that have with communities that need -- concurrently fostering social change by providing meaningful, tangible volunteer experiences for adults and children.

Best 'Green' Car in America Announced, Gets 130 MPGe, Available at Conicelli Nissan Now

Benefiting from a mild redesign, the all-electric 2013 Nissan LEAF has been named as the Best Green Car of 2013; it's available today at Conicelli Nissan, as are two Leaf charging stations for complimentary use by the LEAF community.
Conicelli Nissan, in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania has offered the all-electric Nissan LEAF since it first came to the Philadelphia market in 2011, and is stocked with cars ready to test drive.

"You won't find an all-electric car that offers a better balance of range, practicality, refinement and value than the LEAF," according to the just-released list of the 10 Best Green Cars of 2013 from Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com.

After two years on the market, Nissan tweaked some aspects of the LEAF for 2013, and the result is an increase in efficiency from 103 MPGe to 130 MPGe. "MPGe" is the method that's been devised to provide electric-only vehicles a number that's equivalent to miles per gallon of gasoline. Overall, the changes mean a larger trunk, shorter charging time and longer driving range, not to mention a price that's been lowered by $6000 from last year's model. Importantly, the $7500 federal tax credit still applies, and depending upon where you live, there might be significant state and local tax incentives, as well.

The LEAF, a four-door hatchback design that seats five, is offered in three trim levels, S, SL, and SV, and is now being produced in Smyrna, Tennessee instead of being imported from Japan.

The LEAF is a fully-outfitted car with all the expected amenities, even in its base trim. The LEAF S includes such items as heated front and rear seats, heated leather steering wheel, Bluetooth hands-free phone system, Nissan Intelligent Key, pushbutton start, and 4-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio system with USB connection, Sirius/XM capability and steering wheel mounted controls. On the base model!

The all-electric 2013 Nissan LEAF is available now at Conicelli Nissan, a part of the Conicelli Autoplex family of dealerships in Conshohocken and Springfield, just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Further information about the all-electric Nissan Leaf can be had by calling Conicelli Nissan at 1-888-Conicelli.

Conicelli Offers the Most Surprising 'Green' Car of 2013

KBB.com has announced its list of the Best Green Cars for 2013, and four of the ten winners are from brands offered by the Conicelli dealerships in Conshohocken and Springfield, Pa.

Efficient automobiles are hardly surprising anymore, given the advances in technology in recent years. The car-buying public has seen miles per gallon rise steadily since the '90s, so seeing numerous hybrids like the iconic Toyota Prius on the roads is not uncommon.

But as technology continues to advance, improvements in efficiency are moving to larger vehicles each year. The just-released 2013 list of KBB.com's Best Green Cars includes the expected Toyota Prius, Toyota Prius Plug-in, the Honda Fit EV and the Nissan Leaf (brands that are all available at Conicelli Autoplex, selling Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, Scion, and Toyota vehicles near Philadelphia).

But surprisingly, perhaps even astoundingly, number nine on the list is the 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the largest sedan in the Toyota lineup!

The 2013 Avalon Hybrid achieves 40 MPG highway and 39 MPG city, a level of efficiency that was previously only matched by what used to be thought of as "typical" hybrids: somewhat small and quirky vehicles. Well, this isn't that, by a long shot. The all-new 2013 Avalon Hybrid offers spacious seating for five and a generous trunk, in addition to standard features that used to be reserved for top luxury cars.

With the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the buyer can expect heated leather-trimmed seats, backup camera, power tilt/slide moonroof, alloy wheels, and a long list of other amenities. As KBB.com says in their announcement, "If comfort per gallon were a thing, Avalon Hybrid might be king."

Customers with an interest in both economical operation and luxury appointments may have found the perfect vehicle. View the current Avalon Hybrid inventory and test-drive the all-new 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, as well as the full lineup of dependable Toyota models, at the two Conicelli Toyota showrooms, located near Philadelphia in Conshohocken and Springfield, Pa. Just call 1-888-Conicelli or visit the websites of Conicelli Toyota of Conshohocken or Conicelli Toyota of Springfield.
