The Electric Vehicle Association England has launched a new website ahead of its membership drive in March 2021.
The association, which began operating in 2020 for current and prospective EV drivers, aims to provide information and support to consumers with EVs – and those looking to switch.
Established and run by a group of dedicated volunteers, EVA England has already engaged and aims to develop partnershipswith consumer bodies, industry, government, and other EV associations and groups across Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, and partners in the Global EV Alliance.
One of its first actions was to survey consumers about government plans to phase out petrol and diesel ICE vehicles, and recommended 2030 or as soon as possible after this date, based on results from 1,100 respondents. EVA England has also been working to build a public understanding about the switch by sharing stories from EV drivers about their experiences.
It is currently developing its membership model and benefits package and aims to open to paying members in March 2021.
The website is for anyone with an interest in EVs and features resources and useful links and information. The association will be issuing a new survey to EV and non-EV drivers on the forthcoming UK Government Consumer Experience of Public Charging Consultation in the coming weeks.
