Conicelli-sponsored Colonial Technology Student Association Wins Awards at State Conference

Members of the award-winning Technology Student Association, comprised of students from Colonial Middle School and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School and sponsored by the Conicelli family and Conicelli Autoplex, are shown at the Pennsylvania State TSA Conference in April, when the awards were presented.
The Colonial Technology Student Association (TSA), a group of students from Colonial Middle School and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School who focus on science and technology topics, produced projects that were submitted at the Pennsylvania TSA State Conference held April 18-21 at Seven Springs Conference Center, and won some impressive awards.

The students swept the top three places in the Biotechnology Design competition, and also were awarded first place honors for Engineering Design.
The Conicelli family and Conicelli Autoplex are pleased to have been among those in the community to help these scholars achieve their goals.

"We would not have been successful at the Pennsylvania TSA State Conference without the generous support you have provided us throughout," said Joseph Narke, Chapter Advisor of the Colonial TSA. "We deeply appreciate the willingness with which you have and continue to sponsor our efforts."

The group will now proceed to the TSA National Conference in Orlando, Fla. in late June, where they will again compete. More information about the TSA program can be found at the state and national websites.

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  

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

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.
