NK Motors is delighted to announce that Kia UK has been named as the inaugural winner of the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) ‘Green Manufacturer of the Year’ Award.
The ‘Green Manufacturer of the Year' Award recognises the important steps taken by a car manufacturer to work closely with its dealer network and assist retailers in meeting the demand for alternative fuel vehicles. Kia UK received the highest average score when dealers were asked “how satisfied they were with their alternative fuel vehicle offering” in the latest NFDA 2021/22 Winter Dealer Attitude Survey.
Paul Philpott, President and CEO at Kia UK Limited commented: “We’re delighted to accept this award, which fully reflects Kia’s rapid transition to becoming a leader in electrification. We have put the environment at the very heart of our business: we have committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2045; our European model range will be fully electric in Europe by 2035 – supported by 14 global EV models launched by 2027. And we’ve partnered with companies that are helping to protect the planet, such as ‘The Ocean Cleanup’ and closer to home, Kia UK recently announced its three-year partnership with the Surrey Wildlife Trust. Today, one in three Kia vehicles sold is electrified, well ahead of the curve, with an ever-greater share going towards our fully electric, zero-emission, model range. Thank you to our dealer partners for joining us along this journey and thank you to the NFDA for this award and acknowledgement.”
Kia’s model range is increasingly electric, with models including the fully-electric EV6 and e-Niro, as well as the all-new Sportage which is available for the first time with mild hybrid, full hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains.
