Kia hailed as GreenFleet’s 2020 'EV Manufacturer of the Year'

Kia Soul EV. GreenFleet 2020 EV Manufacturer of the Year Award

Kia Motors (UK) Limited has been crowned ‘EV Manufacturer of the Year’ at the 2020 GreenFleet Awards. Not only was Kia commended, but Lorraine Fellowes, Regional Business Sales Manager at Kia was awarded ‘EV Champion’ status at the awards.

The recognition follows previous success at the 2017 GreenFleet Awards, when the company picked up the ‘PHEV Manufacturer of the Year’ award.

In the ‘EV Manufacturer of the Year’ category, which was sponsored by Electric Zoo UK, Kia triumphed over nine other shortlisted vehicle manufacturers to take the win.

The 2020 GreenFleet Award-winners were announced in a digital ceremony held on 2 December 2020, hosted by Roger Atkins, founder of Electric Vehicles Outlook Limited. The Awards celebrate and recognise fleet operators, companies and individuals that have succeeded in cutting down transport emissions.

Lorraine Fellowes, Regional Business Sales Manager at Kia Motors (UK) Limited commented on the awards, saying: “For Kia, it’s fantastic to receive industry recognition of its EV strategy and for bringing innovative technology and car design to market. Both of these awards recognise that Kia is in great stead for the future."

“For Kia, the transition to fully-electric vehicles is about awareness and informing motorists about EV capabilities, and the recent success of the 48-hour test drive campaign of the Kia Eco Range shows why Kia is deserving of the accolades it has received. I’m truly flattered by the consistent support from everyone working with the company and look forward to continuing the Kia EV journey.”

Every Kia including those with electrified powertrains is sold with an industry leading seven-year / 100,000 mile warranty and its fully-electric vehicles are capable of a range of upwards of 280-miles on a single charge.
