ecodrive has put its
unique decade-long experience to the advantage of some of
the largest vehicle manufacturers in bringing their
Electric Vehicles to market.
Our unique expertise has enabled us to train internal
staff, EV Sales Specialists and Dealer Principals - about
the products themselves, the wider marketplace,
government and EU targets and incentives and the
changing mindset of the potential EV purchasers - both
retail customers and fleet buyers.
We design and deliver all of the sales training for
Peugeot iOn and Citroën C-Zero in the UK and delivered
the European TTMT (Train the Master Trainer) for the
Renault ZE range, plus the Ireland and UK national
dealer training, at the largest EV launch in history in
Seville with over 7,000 delegates. We further
co-designed the training for the Opel Ampera
Extended-Range EV for the German market.
Our team blends vast technical knowledge of EVs, many
years experience of conventional automotive sales and
marketing for the major brands in the UK and Europe with
years of experience of demonstrating and educating the
public about EVs to design and deliver a bespoke
training package for sales or service staff which is
accessible to the target audience, demystifies the
technology and gives real-life accounts of how the
vehicles work in practice.
Sales staff need to understand the extended
'qualification' process to ensure that a customer can
successfully use the new type of vehicle, the
requirements for home or base charging
& any local infrastructure projects and to appreciate the upselling and
associated sales opportunities arising from EV enquiries.
Service staff need to understand the different risks
associated with high voltage components on EVs and adapt
their skills sets to deal with minor and major repairs
in future - on EVs, (Plug in) Hybrid Vehicles and
We are also developing a nationally accredited training
package for emergency services first responders to
enable them to deal with the plethora of new vehicle
technologies to keep themselves safe and to expedite the
safe rescue of people in road traffic collisions
We can call on a team of associate trainers,
experienced in EV product training, to cater for an
event of any scale, from a national or international
product launch to in-house or in-dealer training events.
