Lings Motor Group has received its Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) accreditation.
The Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) scheme has been developed by the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) to recognise retailers’ excellence in the electric vehicle sector. EVA is endorsed by the Government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and Energy Saving Trust.
Following the success of EVA’s first year, which saw over one-hundred dealers obtain accredited status, the Government has renewed its co-sponsorship of the scheme.
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.
Matthew Barwick – Lings Director, commented: “We are delighted to receive our EVA accreditation. Customers can be reassured that at Lings Motor Group they will receive the best advice and support when buying an electric vehicle.”
The NFDA said: “Congratulations to Lings Motor Group on receiving their EV accreditation recognising their expertise in the sector.
