Roscommon winners of inaugural SEAI Electric Vehicle Dealership Awards announced

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) recently announced the winners of its inaugural EV Dealership Awards. These awards recognise and reward excellence in the promotion and sales of electric vehicles (EV) in Ireland.

  116 car dealerships from 25 counties participated, with only one award given per county for the highest-scoring dealership. The County Roscommon winners were Cooney Motors Ltd., who have now made the shortlist for the national award. The results for the National Award will be announced at this year’s SEAI Energy Show, taking place in the RDS Dublin on March 30th and 31st.

  Commenting on the announcement Declan Meally (Director of Business, Public Sector and Transport at SEAI) said: “I congratulate this year’s winners whose commitment and dedication are hugely inspiring.

  “I would also like to thank those dealerships for supporting the awards in such large numbers. Engaging and supporting EV dealers will help influence Ireland’s transition to EVs. These new SEAI Dealership Awards provide additional incentives and opportunities to build capacity and competence in the supply chain and help to improve the overall public customer experience”.

  Car dealers competed through a mystery shopping exercise where they were scored on a number of factors, including how visible EVs were in the showroom, how knowledgeable their salespeople were on EVs, and their sales approach. Other evaluation areas included EV training, sales trends and the dealership’s website.
