Volvo Trucks North America has named Bergey’s Truck Centers, a fourth-generation, family run dealership group, as the second Volvo Trucks Certified Electric Vehicle (EV) Dealer in New Jersey. The dealership’s Trenton, New Jersey, location is the first of its 17 locations to complete the necessary sales and service team training and facility upgrades to become a certified dealership and is now ready to support customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic region that are interested in adding Volvo VNR Electric trucks to their fleets.

“Fleets in the dense urban regions along the East Coast of the U.S. are increasingly recognizing that the battery-electric Volvo VNR Electric is ideally suited for their local and regional distribution routes,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president, Volvo Trucks North America. “We continue to expand our Volvo Trucks Certified EV dealership network to support fleets across North America to ensure they are choosing the right configuration of the Volvo VNR Electric for their own unique routes and doing so in the most cost-effective way, accessing all available grants and incentives.”

Sales representatives at Bergey’s Truck Centers’ Trenton location have been trained to help customers identify and apply for public funding on the federal, state, and local levels to offset purchase costs. The dealership group is prioritizing the certification process for areas with the most customer demand and available incentives, and currently has four other locations working on the rigorous certification process. Bergey’s has 17 dealerships in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, as well as two additional locations in New Jersey.

The Trenton location has two technicians that are trained to understand the proper safety procedures when servicing electric drivetrains and components. The dealership has also made the necessary facility upgrades to have two EV service bays with mobile chargers and advanced diagnostics tools to safely perform battery-electric truck maintenance and repairs for trucks in operation. Bergey’s has eight dedicated parts sales locations and maintains a stock of key parts and components for the VNR Electric model to minimize service times and quickly get trucks back on the road.

“One of Bergey’s core values is a commitment to continuous improvement, and we wanted our sales and service teams to be ready to guide our customers as they look to start that next step in fleet sustainability,” said Mark Brown, vice president of service, Bergey’s Truck Centers. “We plan to continue our training and facility upgrades in preparation for adding other Bergey’s Truck Center locations as demand for the battery-electric trucks continues to grow.”

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