Vast-Auto Launches Electric Verified Recognition Program

Vast-Auto Launches Electric Verified Recognition Program

This development strategy will enable Vast-Auto to lay the foundation for success in the EV and hybrid vehicle segments.

Vast-Auto Distribution, a subsidiary of Groupe Del Vasto, distributor and marketer of automotive parts in Eastern Canada, and a shareholder of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, announced its “Electric Verified by EV Vast Recognition Program.” This new brand is part of Groupe Del Vasto’s global strategy, which includes the Auto Value, M 360 Mechanic, OCTO Auto Service Plus, Auto Mecano and Monsieur Transmission banners.

With the electric and hybrid vehicle market evolving rapidly, Vast-Auto said it has adopted a development strategy that will enable it to lay the foundation for success in this industry segment.

The Electric Verified Recognition Program plays a part in the implementation of the EV Vast strategy, the company said, which is based on four major pillars that will position Vast-Auto and its network of parts stores and repair shops as leaders in the electric and hybrid vehicle market.

The four pillars are:

-The development of a purchasing and installation service for charging stations,
-The development of an Electric Verified repair shops network,
-Specialized training offered by Vast-Auto Academy and EV Skills, and;
-The distribution of specialized parts for electric and hybrid vehicles.

“With this Recognition Program, we want to send a clear message to our customers: we are investing in the development of our skills so the aftermarket can repair and maintain their vehicles, regardless of the engine type,” said Mauro Cifelli, president and CEO of Groupe Del Vasto.

Other partnerships with various suppliers make it easier for repair shops to join the program by providing them with charging stations, health and safety equipment, and specialized equipment for the maintenance and repair of electric and hybrid vehicles, according to Vast-Auto.
