Zero Vehicles Emissions Ireland (ZEVI), a dedicated office within the Department of Transport, and the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) today announced the winners of ZEVI’s EV Dealership of the Year Awards which is now in its second year, and we couldn't be prouder of our team in Windsor Clonee for taking home the award as the best EV dealer aross the County. These awards recognise and reward excellence in the promotion and sales of electric vehicles (EV) in Ireland.
Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan said
“We saw record sales of EVs in Ireland last year. The dealer awards commend the hard work of the car dealers supporting their clients making the switch to electric and celebrates the growing shift towards sustainable clean transport. It’s an exciting time to be working in this growing area. As the sales of EVs continue to grow, it is the award winners of today who are setting the standards and demonstrating the expertise needed in this industry in future.”
Commenting on today’s announcement Declan Meally, Director of Business, Public Sector and Transport at SEAI said:
“The 2023 dealer awards were extremely competitive, and we want to congratulate the 24 county award winners. It is inspiring to see the continued commitment and dedication of the dealerships to reducing emissions in the transport sector and helping Ireland develop a cleaner, more efficient transport future. It is great to see a significant increase not only in EV sales, but in participation in the 2023 awards. SEAI recognises that car dealerships and their staff are a key enabler of EV uptake and are delighted to reward excellence in the showroom.”
Commenting on their win, Windsor Clonee Sales Manager, Bill Sheehan, said:
“For the 2nd consecutive year we’re delighted to receive this prestigious award and recognition from ZEVI and the SEAI. Across the Windsor Group we all aspire to deliver a higher level of knowledge and sales experience for consumers when purchasing an EV. The electrification of Ireland's transport network is a crucial part of the journey to reducing global emissions in the transport sector and hopefully achieving the Climate Action Plan (CAP) targets. These awards are very important for recognising the efforts of Windsor Clonee."
