Dear Colleague,

The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has published a report suggesting that the Government should bring forward the target for new sales of cars and vans to be zero emission by 2032. These announcements and headlines are likely to create further confusion. NFDA called for a consistent, joint approach by Government, industry and key stakeholders which supports the efforts the automotive industry is making. Please find more details in the news.

It has come to our attention that a particular Trading Standards authority is contacting its local dealers with questions about the information they disclose when selling used cars as part of a ‘pro-active enforcement project.’ Members are reminded that they are entitled to take advice before responding to enquiries from Trading Standards. If you receive any enquiries from your local Trading Standards please call the NFDA member helpline for advice 01788 538303.

AM Live 2018 is only three weeks away! NFDA will be at the Hub to update you on all the work we are doing on your behalf including our engagement with the Government, the latest Dealer Attitude Survey and Consumer Attitude Survey as well as the initiatives we are working on to help inform consumers. The Drive My Career’s team will be at stand C20 to give you an update on the growth of the initiative.

We will also make an important announcement about a new initiative for NFDA members regarding electric vehicles - make sure you come to our stand to hear all about it!
