Dear Colleague

This week we launched the Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) scheme at the House of Commons with a number of MPs, Ministers, industry stakeholders and NFDA and NAMA members in attendance. The scheme has been developed by the NFDA and endorsed by the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Energy Saving Trust (EST). If you want to become part of the EVA scheme, please contact

Despite a slight decline, the used car market remained at high levels in the first quarter of 2019 with demand for alternative fuel vehicles growing at 30.7%. However, petrol and diesel remain the most suitable vehicles for a large proportion of UK consumers. Please find more details in this week’s news.

The Drive My Career team will be at the London Motor Show this weekend to talk about career opportunities available in the automotive retail sector. Please come and see the team on stand number 1710 who can tell you all about this industry-first initiative.

NFDA is your trade association: we represent, you benefit. Please contact our member helpline on 01788 538 303, if you require any assistance.

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director
