Wessex Garages receives multiple electric vehicle accreditations.

Wessex Garages Hyundai & Kia, in Newport, and Nissan in Gloucester, has received its Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) accreditations with Wessex Garages also winning “Green Dealer of the Year” Award from the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA).

The Electric Vehicle Approved scheme has been developed by the National Franchised Dealers Association to recognise retailers’ excellence in the electric vehicle sector. Of which, Wessex Garages have continued their scheme support since 2019, where they were one of the first dealer groups to have all branches onboard.

The scheme encourages dealerships to further develop their ability in selling and servicing electric vehicles. It recognises dealers’ expertise in the electric vehicle sector and promotes industry standards for the benefit of the consumer.

Energy Saving Trust independently audits individual dealerships to verify that they meet a set of standards covering EV sales and aftersales. These include the customer qualification process, staff knowledge and training, EV demonstration and handover processes as well as availability of EV service bays and charge points on site.

With Wessex Garages also winning ‘Green Dealer of the Year’ at the National Franchised Dealers Association, it has kept their EV momentum, bringing the next generation of cleaner, more fuel-efficient cars to the region and supporting the EV network.

Danny Wall, Kia and Hyundai Brand Director commented: “We are delighted to receive our EVA and Green Dealer of the Year accreditations. Our valued customers can be reassured that they will receive the best advice and support when buying an electric vehicle at Wessex Garages”.
