Lack of support from carmakers on dealer electric vehicle charging infrastructure is the biggest bugbear for dealers.

The latest Dealer Attitude Survey from the National Franchised Dealers Association found dealers worried about on site charging and carmaker support.

The question got a score of 5.2 out of 10, the lowest returning score for the entire survey.

Kia claimed the top spot in each EV topic featured in the DAS, whilst Seat received the lowest score.

The survey also highlighted that over a third of dealers were dissatisfied with how the ZEV mandate is affecting new vehicle orders.

The survey reveals that despite some progress from the previous edition, there is still “room for improvement” as EV topics again featured among the lowest-scoring questions.

Despite substantial investments made by dealers during the transition to electric vehicles, concerns continue regarding manufacturer support and profitability, it found.
