Peugeot Warns UK Dealers to Ready For EV Revolution

Peugeot has told its UK dealer network to prepare themselves for the coming EV revolution.

During its 2019 National Dealer Conference at the NEC in Birmingham, the carmaker spelled out how its sees the growth of EV adoption will change the face of dealership service required by consumers.

David Peel, managing director of Peugeot UK, told dealers to ‘be prepared’ for the energy transition especially with the brand committing to electrifying its entire product range over the next five years.

He added that the carmaker is embarking on a low-emission vehicle strategy in readiness for these new models. The brand hopes to use the image of its e-Legend concept EV to ‘unbore’ the future of zero emission vehicles and promises its investors will be playing their part, with the installation of new EV charging points at dealerships across the nation.

Peel said: “The extension of powertrain choices from our award winning and efficient new diesel and petrol engines to the next generation of electrified models this year, will give customers options they have never had before, providing a car for every customer’s need.”
