TMS Volvo Receives Electric Vehicle Accreditation 

Posted August 4th 2021

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.

Len Hallows, Managing Director, commented: “We are delighted to receive our EVA accreditation. Our customers can be reassured that at TMS Volvo, in Coventry, Hinckley and Leicester, they will receive the best advice and support when buying an electric vehicle.”

An NFDA spokesperson said: “Congratulations to TMS Volvo on receiving their EV accreditation recognising their expertise in the sector.
