Lake District Audi is now Electric Vehicle Approved by the National Franchise Dealers Association

EVA is a set of standards for all areas of automotive retail (retail, wholesale, aftersales and bodyshops) designed to recognise businesses’ excellence in the electric vehicle sector. In this way, the EVA kitemark enables consumers to immediately identify the businesses at the forefront of electric vehicle retail.

EVA is endorsed by the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and the Energy Saving Trust (EST).

It is the only scheme which certifies the efforts retailers are making in the EV sector to meet the ever-changing consumer demand. The EVA kitemark is awarded to only individual locations which are rigorously and independently audited and found to meet EVA’s standards. With the transition to EVs being confusing and daunting, businesses who meet the EVA standards are able give you confidence in your purchase.

With the EVA kitemark now proudly displayed, you can trust that Lake District Audi will be able to assist you with EVs and give you the highest levels of service and knowledge.


To gain this accreditation, all of our staff have completed an intensive EV awareness training course, and have demonstrated a solid understanding of all electric and hybrid model variants. Our aftersales and technical staff have also received comprehensive training, including undergoing official EV maintenance and repair training.

Our head of business Paul Crewdson says: "As the government plan to phase out new petrol and diesel cars over the coming years, the demand for electric cars is growing fast, so we feel that it important to have the highest level of knowledge to pass on to our customers".

All of our customers can be re-assured that at Lake District Audi, you will receive the very best advice and support when buying an electric vehicle.
