At Carr Chevrolet, we're committed to staying ahead in the realm of EV vehicles. As one of the leading EV dealers in the Pacific Northwest, we constantly ensure that our equipment and personnel remain at the forefront of technological advancements. This last month, in addition to upgrading our EV chargers to state-of-the-art units, we've installed a new Rotary 12,000 lbs. Wide Lift specifically designed for EV vehicles, enhancing our maintenance capabilities significantly. Moreover, we've been actively engaged in conducting repairs and addressing recalls on batteries, prompting us to invest in two EV battery lifts for smaller vehicles and acquiring a larger lift tailored for upcoming models such as the Silverado, Equinox, and Blazer EVs.
