Audi network achieves 100% EVA accreditation

Audi is the first car manufacturer in the UK to receive Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) accreditation across its entire network of 113 centres.

Developed by the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) and endorsed by the government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), the EVA accreditation proves electric vehicle expertise across all areas of automotive retail.

Andrew Doyle, director Audi UK, said: “Audi has a clear and unwavering commitment to electric vehicles – from 2026 every new model we launch will be fully electric. It’s therefore essential that our expertise and knowledge are applied across the entire business and visible to all – especially to our customers.

“Being the first manufacturer in the UK to achieve 100% network EVA accreditation is a testament to our first-class teams across our dealer network and at Audi UK. We are matching rapid customer interest in our electric vehicles by equipping our company and staff with the tools and training they need to provide a seamless and confidence-inspiring experience to our customers as we accelerate the transition to a fully electric future.”

Sue Robinson, chief executive of the NFDA, said: “The financial investment and dedication to achieve 100% EVA accreditation across its entire UK network highlights the importance Audi places on the decarbonisation of UK transport and its expertise in the EV retailing sector.

“The rapid growth of the programme means that consumers looking to make the shift to electric will be able to do so at an increasing number of EVA sites, benefiting from the informed sales staff, a better range of EV models and improved EV facilities and charge points. This will all contribute to improving consumer confidence and drive EV adoption.”
