Volvo Trucks named first certified EV dealer in Central Valley

Volvo Trucks North America has designated Affinity Truck Center’s Fresno, Calif., location as a Volvo Trucks Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer, signifying that it is ready to support customers interested in adding Volvo VNR Electrics to their local and regional distribution, pickup and delivery, and food and beverage distribution routes. Located in the heart of California’s Central Valley, Affinity Truck Center has been serving the region’s transportation needs since 1980 and is now the first Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealer in the region.

“The introduction of the Volvo VNR Electric, is only one part of what’s needed for large-scale electrification to succeed. Another key component is a well-trained dealer support system, and Volvo Trucks is proud to welcome Affinity Truck Center and their staff’s expertise to our growing list of Certified EV Dealers,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America. “In collaboration with Affinity Truck Center, we look forward to working with customers throughout Central California to achieve their zero-tailpipe emission transportation goals.”

Affinity Truck Center’s Fresno service team completed Volvo Trucks’ robust training course to safely maintain and repair electric drivetrains and components, as well as invested in the necessary diagnostic tools. The dealership also began installation of heavy-duty-capable charging infrastructure to enable customers to charge at the dealership. The sales team is preparing to consult with Central Valley fleets who are considering investing in the Volvo VNR Electric.

The service offering includes scheduled and preventative maintenance, towing, and vehicle repair, including the vehicle’s lithium-ion batteries and the complete electromobility system, to ensure peak vehicle uptime, performance, and productivity.
