HILLSBOROUGH, NEW JERSEY (PRWEB) December 10, 2014
Walko Automotive Service (Walko Automotive) becomes the only leading auto care facility in New Jersey certified to deliver The Hybrid Shop’s (THS) services. Through its partnership with THS, Walko Automotive joins a growing international network of Dealer Partners committed to providing expert care for hybrid and electric vehicles (HEVs). THS is the leader in hybrid and electric vehicle diagnostics and maintenance among consumers and the Auto Repair industry worldwide and the authority on ‘all things hybrid.’
Through its partnership and training with THS, Walko Automotive can now fully service hybrid and electric vehicles and provide THS’ hybrid Battery Pack Conditioning service. THS’ hybrid Battery Pack Conditioning is a green service that restores up to 95% of the battery pack’s original power and energy, while driving significant increased fuel economy over the vehicle’s lifetime.
Key advantages and savings that Walko Automotive’s clients can expect from these new services include:
- Cost-savings – Battery Pack Conditioning is approximately 1/3 the cost of battery replacement. An underperforming hybrid battery results in decreased fuel economy and torque. Before The Hybrid Shop’s introduction of proprietary battery conditioning technology, hybrid owners’ only option was battery replacement which could cost as much as $4,000- $9,000.
- Enhanced fuel economy – Battery Pack Conditioning results in 10-35% fuel economy improvement, depending on the initial state of the battery at the time of service.
- Enhanced vehicle performance – Every HEV undergoing these services will perform more efficiently, cost less to operate, and experience improved drivability.
Walko Automotive will offer a comprehensive menu of services that ensures their hybrid customers receive the highest quality repair and maintenance, including:
- Battery Pack Conditioning and rebuilding services
- Testing of electric transmissions, DC-DC converters, power inverter and control systems
- Hybrid specific maintenance
Walko Automotive will also offer the optional State of Health (SOH) program that assesses how a vehicle’s overall systems are performing to deliver maximum results, reliability, and cost-savings.
Central to Walko Automotive’s operations is an emphasis on keeping ahead of the curve, working hard to maintain a high level of technical competency and diagnostic materials, and delivering the best available technology, equipment, and parts to their clients. Celebrating over 30 years in business, Andy Walko and his team are passionate about serving the needs of greater Somerset County area drivers and vehicle owners with quality, honesty, and integrity. This partnership with THS underscores their continued dedication to bringing the best automotive services and technology to their loyal and growing client base.
“For over 30 years, I have built a business that I’m truly passionate about,” Walko Automotive’s owner Andy Walko states. “It’s important for my team and me to be fully knowledgeable and able to service all vehicles as a full-service facility. I wanted Walko Automotive to be a place where clients could come to have their hybrids serviced and to experience full satisfaction from their vehicles. We now exclusively provide our region with a full scale of hybrid services that deliver both environmentally-friendly and cost-saving solutions that improve and extend the life of their vehicles.”
“When you speak with Andy Walko you automatically understand why he’s been so successful and has such a great and loyal client base,” Dave Crawford, CEO of The Hybrid Shop, stated. “THS is honored to have Walko Automotive as our first and only Dealer Partner in New Jersey and to not only certify Andy and his team in our battery conditioning service but as experts in care of hybrid vehicles as well. We look forward to their continued success in serving their regional hybrid market.”
