Electric vehicles are enjoying a sales boom. Registrations of new alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) were up 31.4% year-on-year to the end of July, in an overall market down 2.2%, and the UK Government has announced its intention for all new cars to have a non-fossil-fuel drive component by 2040.
The bulk of those AFVs are hybrids and EVs, which is a good news story for sales. But is it good news for the workshop?
Are your dealerships' workshops ready for more EV and hybrid work? Tell AM in this month's dealer survey:
Not every technician can work on hybrids - special training and tools are required, meaning additional costs for dealers. Pure EVs do not have gearboxes or require oil changes and contain fewer parts (up to 20,000 fewer in some cases) meaning less things to go wrong for the motorist, but also less work for franchised dealer workshops.
AM wants to know how any or all of these issues affect UK car dealers.
This survey contains 14 multiple-choice questions and should take you less than three minutes to complete.
