Alongside an exhibition of the very latest EV-related equipment, tools, training and parts available to independent garages from the UK aftermarket's biggest brands, an EV Ready discussion panel will weigh-up what the UK's growing EV car parc means for vehicle servicing and repairs, the business opportunities available and how best for workshops to transition into the new and emerging electrified era.
Garage Wire editor, Mike Ruff said: "This is a much-needed event for independent garages. Whether you're already starting to think about EVs or are yet to be convinced of the business opportunities for your workshop, come along to find out what's happening in your industry.
Joining the EV Ready discussion panel is Peter Melville of the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Repair Alliance, automotive author Tom Denton, Ben Stockton of Our Virtual Academy, Paul Dineen of Servicesure and Quentin Le Hetet of GiPA.
Matt Cleevely of Cleevely will also be joining the panel to share his expertise as an award-winning and widely renowned independent EV specialist, while Kevin Pearce of Cedar Garage will be offering his perspective as a forward-thinking garage that's currently making investments to tap into the growing EV market.
Ruff said: "With almost every vehicle manufacturer now offering an EV line-up, it's a car parc that's fast growing and one that independent workshops should be considering. There's no doubt that it's a seismic shift we're seeing, so we'll have renowned industry experts here to discuss EV trends, technology and the business scope for workshops."
