Volvo Trucks increases certified EV dealerships with more on the way

Certified EV Dealerships comprise a key cornerstone in the Volvo Trucks electromobility ecosystem.

Volvo Trucks has announced that it has tripled the number of Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealerships in North America, growing from 12 locations in May 2022 to 36 locations in 19 states in May 2023 with an additional 56 locations in process, according to a recent press release. Certified EV Dealerships comprise a key cornerstone in the Volvo Trucks electromobility ecosystem. To date, Volvo Trucks has delivered 251 VNR Electric trucks from the New River Valley Plant in Dublin, Va., and continues to lead the shift toward decarbonized freight transportation.  

The Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealership program was designed to ensure the robust sales and service ecosystem required to support customers with the commercial deployment of Class 8 battery-electric trucks. Additional certified locations in three new states–Alabama, Delaware, and Oklahoma–as well as 56 more dealership locations in process.

Dealership support is critical to the successful adoption of battery-electric trucks and Volvo Trucks recently announced the successful EV certification of these new dealerships: 

  • Bergey’s Truck Center – New Castle, Delaware; 
  • Bruckner Truck Sales – Tulsa, Oklahoma;
  • Burr Truck & Trailer Sales – Vestal, New York;
  • Nextran Truck Center – Fultondale, Alabama; Lake City, Florida; and Tampa, Florida; and 
  • Western Truck Center – West Sacramento, California.

The Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealership program was introduced in 2020 as part of the Volvo LIGHTS Project, during which TEC Equipment, Volvo Trucks’ largest West Coast dealer group, supported the first Volvo VNR Electric demonstration trucks. Just three years later, Volvo Trucks has certified 36 dealers in 19 states and three Canadian provinces. Fifty-six additional locations are in the process of becoming Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealerships, that will add 18 new states for a total of 37 U.S. states and one new province for a total of four Canadian provinces. 

Dealerships located coast to coast throughout North America have completed the rigorous training and facility upgrades needed to be named a Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealership.
