Surgenor Truck Group’s Ontario locations become Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealers

Surgenor Truck Group has received multiple inquiries about the availability of the Volvo VNR Electric model.

Volvo Trucks North America announced the sixth and seventh Canadian dealerships to complete its comprehensive Volvo Trucks Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer program. Surgenor Truck Group, a truck dealership for more than 30 years, has completed the program at two locations—Ottawa and Kingston, Ontario, Canada—to support the growing regional interest in Class 8 battery-electric trucks.  

Surgenor Truck Group, which is the largest group of Volvo Trucks dealers in Eastern Ontario has received multiple inquiries about the availability of the Volvo VNR Electric model, particularly from cities and local governments. To help its customers evaluate which of its routes are the most ideal for electrification, as well as select the right Volvo VNR Electric configuration, Surgenor Truck Group’s sales team has been trained to use Volvo Trucks’ route planning tool — the Electric Performance Generator.  Additionally, both Ontario dealership locations can help customers evaluate the business impact of purchasing and operating the Volvo VNR Electric by utilizing Volvo Trucks’ Electromobility Total Cost of Ownership tool.  

Two technicians at each location are now fully trained and equipped to meet the service needs of fleets operating Volvo VNR Electric trucks. The Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealer program ensures the service team at the dealership has been fully trained and equipped to safely perform battery-electric truck maintenance and repairs for trucks in operations. The Ottawa and Kingston locations both have a dedicated EV service bay, and technicians have been outfitted with personal protective equipment for working with high-voltage systems. A portable 50 kw fast charger is available at both locations to support the battery-electric trucks. 

Volvo Trucks now has certified EV dealers in California, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, as well as in British Columbia, Ontario, and Quebec, Canada, with several dealerships across North America finalizing their certifications in 2022 and 2023.
