Abdul Chowdhury, head of vehicle policy at the government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, heads the list of speakers at the Vehicle Remarketing Association’s (VRA) member meeting for this month.
He will provide an update on workstreams supporting the used electric vehicle (EV) market at the event, which takes place online at 10am on Thursday 27th April.
There will also be a panel discussion looking at the current situation regarding used vehicle supply featuring Phill Jones, chief operating officer at eBay Motors Group; Greg Smith, Commercial Director at Carshop Supermarket; and Michael Tomalin, CEO at both City Auctions Group and PurpleRock.
VRA chair Philip Nothard said: “Used EVs continue to be among the most-discussed topics in remarketing, and being able to hear directly from someone such as Abdul at the centre of government thinking is sure to be fascinating, especially following the recently-issued environmental policy document and EV Mandate.
“We’re also looking forward to hearing the panel discussion on used vehicle supply. This continues to be a difficult area for our members with as yet no obvious end to the issue in sight. It’ll be interesting to get views from a range of people deeply involved in this area to get their views about current and likely future developments.”
April’s online event will be followed by an in-person member meeting on Thursday 25th May at a location yet to be confirmed. Further details about attending VRA meetings can be obtained by emailing email@example.com.
