Feb. 8, 2022—Valvoline announced that select retail stores are piloting a service program aimed more directly at electric vehicles.
In a press release, the company said that it hopes to service OEMs, fleets, and individual customers. A "limited number" of locations are involved.
"For 150 years we've been bringing innovation to the automotive aftermarket," said Heidi Matheys, chief marketing and transportation officer, in the release. "As Valvoline continues to transform its retail offerings and extend its existing offerings to EV owners, we are able to offer our quick, easy, trusted approach to automotive maintenance regardless of a vehicle's power source."
The services that Valvoline initially plans to gear toward EV users are 12-volt battery replacements, tire rotations, key fob battery replacements, air filters, wipers, and inspections. A second phase in the summer will include "additional services targeted to EVs."
