The Electric Vehicle Approved (EVA) scheme has been developed by the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) to recognise retailers' excellence in the electric vehicle sector. EVA is endorsed by the Government's Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and Energy Saving Trust.

The scheme, which is co-sponsored by the Government, encourages dealerships to further develop their ability in selling and servicing electric vehicles. It recognises dealers' expertise in the electric vehicle sector and promotes industry standards for the benefit of the consumer.

Energy Saving Trust independently audits individual dealerships to verify that they meet a set of standards covering EV sales and aftersales. These include the customer qualification process, staff knowledge and training, EV demonstration and handover processes as well as availability of EV service bays and charge points on site.

Richard Roberts, Managing Director, commented:

We are delighted to receive our EVA accreditation. Trident Honda has always enjoyed an enviable reputation for its expertise and professionalism. Customers can now feel reassured that this extends to the sale and servicing of their next electric vehicle.

Sue Robinson, NFDA Chief Executive, writes:

I would like to congratulate you on passing your recent EVA (Electric Vehicle Approved) audit. Your business has proven its ability to meet the high standards required to be awarded EVA status.

For more details, please visit the EVA website.

eBussy is short for 'electric bus system'. Its maximum range without charging, with full battery and solar modules is over 600 km. With more than 10 modular and interchangeable bodies, it can be transformed into a convertible, off-roader, box body, station wagon, pick-up or van and camping bus in just a few steps.

Quite simply the eBussy is the most innovative and modular light vehicle in the world.

Richard Roberts, Managing Director or Trident Garages, writes:

We're so excited to be joining eBussy, and playing a part in a revolution in green motoring.
<![CDATA[The Old Forge, Ottershaw ]]>https://www.tridentxbus.co.uk/post/the-old-forge-ottershaw6058da4fb0e04e006dc90835Thu, 17 Dec 2020 18:11:38 GMTChristopher RobertsTrident is delighted to announce that it took over the former Anvil Autos site, on Thursday 17th December 2020.

This historic site will give us a visible presence on the busy Otter roundabout, as well as providing us with much needed display space for our extensive selection of used cars. The workshop, once a blacksmith's (see history below), will be used for additional vehicle preparation space.

Initially we plan to operate the site from our main Honda dealership, being just 100 metres up the Guildford Road, using a video doorbell and cameras to monitor the site, but this may well change once business picks up post-pandemic.

Our managing director, Richard Roberts, explains:

We are delighted to be taking over the old blacksmiths on the Otter roundabout. Trident Garages has been associated with Ottershaw ever since it was established in 1963, and it is perhaps only surprising that we are only just taking over this site after 57 years!
