Dear Colleague,

This week members will have received NFDA’s legal statement regarding agency distribution within the automotive sector. We are continuing to work with a legal team and will communicate updates as they arise, if you have not received the copy or would like further advice, please contact us.

Next week we will be launching NFDA’s Aftersales Working Group, taking place at the British Motor Show on Thursday 19 August. Attending this working group will help with your aftersales strategies in EV adoption and will give you access to the Motor Show on their trade day. If you are attending the show, please visit us at our EVA and Drive My Career stands.

On Tuesday, the NFDA hosted its first EV Readiness Roadshow in Leeds to assist dealerships with the challenges and opportunities that the EV revolution presents. Thank you to our guest speakers and all that attended. Our next EV Readiness event will take place on 25 August, through Microsoft Teams, and registration spaces are available.

NFDA is the voice of automotive retailers: if you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our member helpline on 01788 538303 or email

Sue Robinson, NFDA Chief Executive
