Series of white papers on how electrification is affecting remarketing launched by VRA

The first in a new series of white papers examining different aspects of how vehicle electrification is affecting remarketing has been published by the Vehicle Remarketing Association (VRA)

Called “Electric Vehicle Charging: What the Remarketing Sector Needs to Know”, it has been written by battery electrochemist Euan McTurk, creator and presenter of Plug Life Television, a YouTube channel about battery technology and EVs.

The document covers topics including the current public recharging infrastructure, the types of charging facilities remarketing companies might need, advice on how remarketing companies should handle EV movements and what the remarketing sector needs to do to maximise take-up of second-hand EVs.

Philip Nothard, VRA chair, said: “We’ve felt for some time that the remarketing sector is being neglected when it comes to published information and advice on electrification, and these white papers are, in part, our attempt to redress that balance.

“We are finding that there is huge and growing demand for briefings on the remarketing of EVs from our members. They are aware that the numbers of electric cars and vans seen so far in the used sector are just a trickle compared to the flood that will arrive over the next couple of years, and recognise their need to prepare for this shift. Also, of course, the collapse in values seen in recent months has created a huge amount of trepidation and uncertainty.

“Through the white papers, we’ll be attempting to answer some of the sector’s biggest questions and create a bedrock for future discussions and best practice.”
