Vast-Auto Distribution, a leading automotive company, has unveiled an innovative program to address the growing number of electric vehicles (EVs) on Canadian roads. The company has introduced the Electric Verified by EV Vast Recognition Program, aimed at certifying repairs and services for electric and hybrid vehicles. This initiative is part of Groupe Del Vasto’s overarching global strategy, which includes renowned brands such as Auto Value, M 360 Mechanic, OCTO Auto Service Plus, Auto Mecano, and Monsieur Transmission.
In order to establish its dominance and expertise in the rapidly expanding EV market, Vast-Auto Distribution has built its strategy on four core pillars. These pillars encompass the establishment of a comprehensive charging station purchase and installation service, the creation of a network of ‘Electric Verified’ repair shops, the provision of specialized training through Vast-Auto Academy and EV Skills, and the distribution of specialized components for electric and hybrid vehicles.
The collaboration with the EV Skills training program guarantees that the network’s repair shops and parts stores will consistently deliver high-quality service. Mauro Cifelli, President and CEO of Groupe Del Vasto, emphasized the significance of this recognition program on customer confidence. He stated, “We are dedicated to enhancing our skills so that we can repair and maintain our customers’ vehicles, regardless of their engine type.”
To further support the repair shops that join the program, Vast-Auto Distribution has forged partnerships with various suppliers. These collaborations ensure that essential resources such as charging stations, safety equipment, and specialized maintenance and repair tools for electric and hybrid vehicles are readily available.
The Electric Verified by EV Vast Recognition Program is poised to revolutionize the electric and hybrid vehicle repair and service industry in Canada. With its commitment to upholding the highest standards of quality and expertise, Vast-Auto Distribution aims to be at the forefront of this automotive evolution.
