Volvo certified EV network expands by 10 locations

Volvo certified EV dealers

Volvo Trucks North America added 10 locations and three new states to its certified EV network. The new states are Rhode Island, Utah and Washington. It also added a location in Manitoba, Canada. 

More than 50 locations across North America have now completed the program. 

"Before we announced the commercialization of the VNR Electric, we understood that electric trucks would need to have the same level of uptime and the same quality service for our customers as our diesel trucks," says Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America. "That's why we created the certified EV dealer program in parallel to the commercialization plans for the VNR Electric. Today, we continue to lead the industry with 59 certified EV dealerships across the United States and Canada to serve our customers in the areas their VNR Electric trucks are deployed and decarbonizing transportation."

The new locations are: 

  • Aber's Truck Center, Ashland, Ohio. 
  • Anderson Motors, Riverside, Rhode Island. 
  • Beaver Truck Center, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. 
  • Gerry's Truck Centre, Woodstock, Ontario, Canada. 
  • M&K Truck Centers, Des Plaines, Illinois, and Frankfort, Indiana. 
  • Mountain West Truck Center, West Valley City, Utah. 
  • TEC Equipment, Des Moines and Lacey, Washington. 
  • Transport Equipment, Spokane Valley, Washington. 

Volvo calls dealership support essential to the successful adoption of battery electric trucks. So far, Volvo has delivered 470 Volvo VNR Electric Trucks that have logged 4.5 million customer miles. 

"The expansion of our certified EV dealer locations shows that battery-electric heavy-duty trucks are here to stay and will continue to scale as a viable option for freight transportation," Voorhoeve says. "Our vision is to continue that expansion." 

Volvo says it is on track to certify 40 more dealer locations across North America.
