Young Trucks, a Canton, Ohio, dealership, is the state's first Volvo Trucks certified EV dealership. 

"We have continued to focus on the road ahead, and introducing battery-electric truck sales and service into our product and service offering was a natural next step for Young Trucks. We already service commercial trucks powered by various fuel types and technologies and adding battery-electric trucks to the  mix allows us to further provide our customers with an array of solutions to suit their unique operating needs," says dealer principal Ryan Young. "Our leasing and rental company, Young Leasing, ordered its first Volvo VNR Electric truck to utilize as a rental unit for area fleet customers. This truck will also serve as a demo vehicle for local fleets, enabling them to experience firsthand the power and performance of the Volvo VNR Electric in their real-world routes." 

Young Trucks is a fourth-generation family owned dealership. With its addition, Ohio becomes the tenth state in Volvo's certified EV dealer network. 

"Adding our tenth state to the Volvo Trucks certified EV dealer network is the perfect way to close out a year that has seen significant expansion of the electromobility ecosystem that is necessary to support battery-electric trucks," says Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America. "Our dealerships play a critical role for fleets in every stage of the transition to battery-electric trucks with plans to expand as adoption of the Volvo VNR Electric truck increases in the region." 

Young Trucks will have a portable 50kW Heliox charger. Two of their technicians completed Volvo's training course on maintaining and repairing electric drivetrains and components. Additionally, the dealership bought diagnostic tools and personal protective equipment for high voltage systems.
