This month we saw The National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) reveal that it has now accredited over 200 dealers on its Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) scheme, which has been reopened. Volvo is one carmaker that wants its network fully accredited by the end of the year.

The scheme was developed in 2019 to encourage retailers to enhance their expertise in the electric vehicle sector and support consumer confidence. EVA certifies the efforts and investments that retailers are making in the EV sector to meet the consumer demand. Following the reopening of the scheme, retailers can now apply to receive their EVA badge of approval.

November also saw electric vehicle drivers from Europe and the UK on ‘The Electric Road to COP26’ visiting the Arnold Clark Innovation Centre in Glasgow before heading to the Cop26 UN Climate Change Conference. It was part of a tour of leading companies that are providing solutions to help combat climate change through their innovative work with electric vehicles and charging.
