Audi UK centres receive 'Electric Vehicle Approved' accreditation
Audi is the first car manufacturer in the UK to receive Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) accreditation across its entire network of centres.
EVA accreditation was developed by the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA), endorsed by the Government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and independently audited by Energy Saving Trust. The accreditation is a clear demonstration of electric vehicle expertise across all areas of automotive retail and Audi’s achievement is a reflection of the company being at the forefront of electric vehicle development.
Audi is the first brand to achieve 100 percent EVA approval across its 113 Centres. This achievement is a reflection of Audi’s commitment to electric vehicles and ambition to become the leading provider of sustainable mobility. The EVA scheme encourages dealerships to further develop their ability in selling and servicing electric vehicles and build consumer confidence in electric vehicle technology.
Andrew Doyle Director Audi UK, commented: “Audi has a clear and unwavering commitment to electric vehicles - from 2026 every new model we launch will be fully electric. It’s therefore essential that our expertise and knowledge are applied across the entire business and visible to all – especially to our customers.
“Being the first manufacturer in the UK to achieve 100 percent network EVA accreditation is a testament to our first-class teams across our dealer network and at Audi UK. We are matching rapid customer interest in our electric vehicles by equipping our company and staff with the tools and training they need to provide a seamless and confidence-inspiring experience to our customers as we accelerate the transition to a fully electric future.”
As part of the EVA accreditation, each Audi Centre is independently audited by the Energy Saving Trust 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 the availability of EV service bays and charge points on site.
