Volvo Trucks North America announced Nacarato Truck Centers, a third-generation family-run dealership group, completed the required training and facility updates to become its first certified electric vehicle dealership in Tennessee at its La Vergne location, servicing the greater Nashville market.

This is the second location to be certified for Nacarato Truck Centers. Its Roanoke, Va., location completed certification in January to become the first one in that state.

“It is fantastic to see the Nacarato team apply the experience they gained in Virginia, where they are supporting fleet customers who are utilizing Volvo VNR Electrics to transport inbound parts and components to the Volvo Trucks New River Valley Assembly Operations, to be able to quickly expand their network of Volvo Trucks Certified EV Dealerships to their other locations,” Peter Voorhoeve, president of VTNA, said in a release.

Founded in 1976 in Nashville, Nacarato Truck Centers operates a network of Volvo Trucks dealerships and service centers throughout Tennessee, Virginia, Southern Kentucky, Maryland and Georgia.

The dealership group noted it plans to complete the certification at all eight of its dealerships and is already in the process of certifying its Hagerstown, Md., location.

VTNA reported its network of certified EV dealers has locations in California, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, as well as in Quebec, Canada. — Transport Topics
