Mack announces Ohio's first Mack Certified EV Dealer

Mack announces Ohio’s first Mack Certified EV Dealer

To obtain this certification, dealers must meet rigorous requirements for a smooth transition to electric vehicle service.

Mack Trucks dealer General Truck Sales recently completed the stringent requirements to become a Mack Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer at its Toledo, Ohio, location. The designation means General Truck Sales will now be able to service and support the Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle, Mack’s first Class 8 full electric vehicle. Dealers must meet rigorous safety, infrastructure, tooling, charging and training requirements to be EV-certified. Mack executives work hand-in-hand with dealer executives to ensure requirements are met and the transition to EV support is smooth.

General Truck Sales is Mack’s first Ohio location to be a certified EV Dealer.

Bassett said he chose to certify General Truck Sales in Toledo, a Mack Certified Uptime Dealer, because the flagship location is close to major highways and is a newer facility. The site is equipped with a 50kWH electric vehicle charger and multiple outlets for optimal flexibilities and options.

General Truck Sales, located at 5801 Suder Ave., Toledo, has 93,000 square feet and offers 34 service bays, two of which are designated for electric vehicles. There are 21 technicians, eight master technicians and two certified to perform service on the Mack LR Electric. General Truck Sales in Toledo is open 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
