On behalf of all the technicians and staff at Luscious Garage, I’d like to thank you for your business over the years. We appreciate the trust you’ve placed in us and look forward to serving you and your vehicles in the future.

Why is Luscious Garage turning into Earthling Automotive?

We have seen a dramatic increase in electric vehicle adoption in the SF Bay Area and this trend will only increase. In order to service the electric vehicles already on the road and to prepare for the increase in the future, we need to update our operations. Earthling Automotive is designed from the ground up with tools and technologies to maintain and repair all makes and models of electric vehicles. And we are building a training institute in house, to make sure that our technicians stay up to date on all electric vehicles in the future.

Who are the technicians at Earthling Automotive?

The technicians that you know and love from Luscious have already started their move to Earthling Automotive. By April 3, all Luscious technicians will be Earthling Automotive employees.

How will you make sure your technicians stay up to date on EVs and hybrids?

Great question! A core part of Earthling Automotive is our training institute. We are designing best-in-class training courses not only to keep our technicians up-to-date on EV and hybrid repair, but also to offer courses to technicians across the country to up level EV car repair in the industry.

Does your lobby have WIFI?

Making our customers comfortable has always been and will remain paramount to us. Rest assured we are designing a cozy lobby where you can get work done or relax, depending on your needs.

Is there any shopping near Earthling Automotive?

Yes, we are just a couple blocks away from Lowe’s and a block away from Flowercraft garden center.

What happens to the garage at Luscious? I love that space.

So do we! Luscious Garage will be transformed into the Earthling Automotive Training Institute later in 2023. Stay tuned to learn all that we will be doing to grow EV repair knowledge for our technicians and the industry.
