Holden has announced that Volt is to be sold throughout the Holden network with three Dealers selected to deliver and service the long range electric car, Schofield Holden, Ebbett Wellington and Blackwells Holden Christchurch.
Dealers from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch will promote the ground-breaking Volt that has the long range capability meaning electric car ownership is no longer restricted to city dwellers and customers can now place their orders.
Managing Director of Holden New Zealand, Jeff Murray said that announcing New Zealand’s Holden Volt dealers is a real thrill especially at a time when people really are becoming more conscious about their carbon footprint and the environment.
“The three servicing Dealers were chosen for a number of reasons not the least of which is their areas of operation which we believe will enable them to service the breadth and width of the country,” said Mr Murray.
“All our Dealers have shown huge interest in Volt and they were excited to be associated with these types of technology advances and innovation.
“There has been a lot of interest shown by large companies who are keen on lowering their carbon footprint which is incredibly pleasing given that Holden can now provide such a game changing option.
Holden is also pleased to announce a special White Glove experience which is a premium service designed to enhance a premium vehicle.
“We felt it was important to show how proud we are of the Volt as a technologically advanced electric car and we are providing a service comparable to this vehicle,” said Mr Murray.
“The Holden Volt dismisses long range anxiety associated with most electric vehicles and it shows how serious Holden is in providing even more options for the discerning customer.
Volt pricing, specifications and launch timings will be announced later in the year.
