Electric Roadshow: Trusted Dealers and Energy Saving Trust Launch National Consumer Awareness RoadshowBack

NFDA Trusted Dealers and independent consumer advice organisation the Energy Saving Trust are running a nationwide campaign to increase awareness among UK car buyers about the benefits of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs), after new research by Trusted Dealers found nearly one third (29%) of UK drivers are considering an electric car as their next vehicle, but are uncertain about what to look for.

The roadshows started last week in the cities designated to be the UK’s first clean air zones, with events running in Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham, London and Southampton.

The roadshow aims to give drivers the real facts about ULEVs so they can consider one as their next vehicle. The Energy Saving Trust’s electric vehicle experts have been on hand to advise attendees on the benefits of electric cars and debunk common myths around ULEVs such as battery life and cost.

The events, which have been run in partnership with local dealers in each city, have been well received by attendees, with many participants commenting that the interactive sessions have not only improved their understanding of the technology behind electric cars, but also the practicalities of owning one.

Neil Addley, Managing Director of NFDA Trusted Dealers, said:

“Our research has revealed that a significant number of car buyers are now seriously considering low emission vehicles for their next car, but are at a loss on where to start. On the Trusted Dealers site we have seen more green cars filtering through to the used car market, with more than 200 vehicles listed on our site.

We are really pleased with how the first five events have been received by the public and hope to be able to continue our work with the Energy Saving Trust in the future.”
