Avon Motors in Rathdrum have been named as the Wicklow winners of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) EV Dealership Awards.
The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) this week announced the winners of its inaugural EV Dealership Awards. These awards recognise and reward excellence in the promotion and sales of electric vehicles (EV) in Ireland.
Car dealerships are a vital part of the transition to clean and efficient transport. SEAI wants to recognise and award those dealerships who are working to increase consumers understanding and experience of EVs and their uptake on Irish roads.
There were 116 applications across 25 counties. Car dealers competed through a mystery shopping exercise where they were scored on a number of factors including how visible EVs were in the showroom, how knowledgeable their salespeople were on EVs, and their sales approach. Other evaluation areas included EV training, sales trends and the dealership’s website.
The winners announced are now on the shortlist for the national award which will be announced at this year’s SEAI Energy Show taking place in the RDS, Dublin on March 30th and 31st.
