  1. EV Readiness

The first module will help you ensure that your dealership infrastructure is ready: understand the requirements, the steps you must take before spending any money and how you can benefit from the super deduction tax.

  1. EV Ethos

Through the second session of the day, Ian Featherstone, Knowledge Manager at Energy Saving Trust, will advise dealers on how to create a successful EV culture, including the importance of understanding the latest technology and adapting the skills of your workforce

  1. EV Sales

Declan Gaule, Chief Executive of MFG Group, will lead this section. Discussions will focus on qualifying your EV customers, overcome potential objections and progressing enquiries.
