Holden has announced 49 dealers will sell and service the Volt long range
electric car when it is released in the final quarter this year.
Dealers from Townsville to Bunbury will sell the Holden Volt because the long range capability of Volt means electric
car ownership is no longer restricted to city dwellers.
Holden Executive Director – Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth said 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 programme.” said Mr Elsworth.
“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 car.”
Holden Volt pricing, specifications and launch timings will be announced in late July.
