PITTSBURGH — Volvo Trucks North America dealer TransEdge Truck Centers recently became the first Volvo Trucks Certified Electric Vehicle Dealer in Pennsylvania after its Pittsburgh location completed staff training and facility upgrades.
“We are proud of the success of our Volvo Trucks’ Certified EV Dealer program as it expands to yet another state and continues to build the ecosystem necessary for widespread adoption of battery-electric trucks across the nation,” Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America, said.
“Our dealer partner, TransEdge Truck Centers, continues to provide exceptional service to assist customers with their electromobility transition, and we are excited to see the overwhelmingly positive response to their event to introduce the Volvo VNR Electric to customers in Pennsylvania.”
At TransEdge Truck Center’s Pittsburgh location, three team members have been trained to service and maintain the Volvo VNR Electric, including one service manager and two technicians. The dealership converted one service bay to be dedicated to battery-electric trucks, and technicians have been outfitted with personal protective equipment for working with high-voltage systems.
The remodeled facility includes upgraded electrical service and charging infrastructure that can handle a 25kw and 50kw charger.
As a family owned and operated dealership founded in the early 1920s, TransEdge Truck Centers has six modern facilities that service Pennsylvania and its surrounding areas. The Pittsburgh site is about 18,000 square feet and has approximately $1.2 million in key parts and components inventory for the Volvo VNR Electric model to minimize service times and quickly get customers back on the road.
“We have had a lot of interest in the Volvo VNR Electric model from our customers and wanted to make sure we were ready to provide comprehensive sales and service support,” Jim Gallagher, vice president of service at TransEdge Truck Centers, said.
