Holden has announced the 49 dealers that will sell and service the Volt extended-range electric vehicle, revealing that orders have already been placed for the first Volt customers.
Each dealer has committed to achieve environmental accreditation and invest in new tooling and infrastructure to support Volt servicing requirements.
“Many Holden dealers already have a strong environmental focus but Volt dealers will also be required to achieve at least a level 2 Green Stamp Plus Accreditation through the VACC Green Stamp program,” Holden Executive Director – Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth said. “Accreditation assures customers that the dealer takes its environmental responsibility seriously.”
Dealerships that attain such environmental accreditation must implement a minimum number of environmental management practices across their business. This could include recycling, efficient energy usage and reduction in the use and disposal of toxic chemicals.
Each dealer will also install a dedicated Volt charging station and invest in new tooling and training to ensure the highest standards of service for owners of Holden’s first electric vehicle.
Announcing the Volt dealers as part of the Holden network, John Elsworth also confirmed the first orders had been placed by dealers who reported strong interest in Volt.
Customers can find their nearest Volt dealer via the Holden website at http://www.holden.com.au/dealerlocator. Volt pricing, specifications and launch timings will be announced before the end of July.
