Santa Monica Auto Shop Now Offers New Hybrid Services:

405 AUTO, an auto repair and maintenance services shop specializing in European luxury vehicles, has announced that its hybrid services division, Santa Monica Hybrid, has joined The Hybrid Shop (THS), a growing international network of dealers committed to providing expert care for hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs), as a Dealer Partner.

Through its partnership and training with THS, Santa Monica Hybrid will now offer hybrid Battery Pack Conditioning, a green service that restores up to 95 percent of the battery pack’s original power and energy.

The ability to restore, as opposed to replace, the batteries is a critical element in the environmental sustainability of these services.

Santa Monica Hybrid has dedicated an entire expanded area of its shop to specifically focus on diagnostic, maintenance, and repair services for HEVs.

Santa Monica Hybrid’s Martin Kruszelnicki said the business was thrilled to join THS and to be able to take their commitment to both customers and the environment to the next level.

“HEVs are truly the future of the automotive industry, and we look forward to putting THS’ proven technical process to work to expand our services for HEVs, while keeping a focus on educating our customers and growing our business across the Santa Monica area,” Kruszelnicki said.

Santa Monica Hybrid will also offer the optional State of Health (SOH) program that assesses the vehicle’s bigger picture, which is conducted prior to Battery Pack Conditioning to evaluate how different aspects of the car are trending to deliver maximum results, reliability, and cost-savings from hybrid vehicle services.

Matt Curry, CEO of The Hybrid Shop, said the organization welcomed Santa Monica Hybrid as THS’ newest Dealer Partner.

“Their leadership and dedication to the future of hybrid vehicles, as well as their commitment to the education of their customers and the public across their region make them an ideal addition to our rapidly-increasing network of experts,” Curry said.  

Santa Monica Hybrid is located at 825 Olympic Boulevard in Santa Monica.
