Top electric vehicles revealed in Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards 2021

By / 5 months ago / UK News / No Comments

The UK’s leading electric vehicles have been named in this year’s Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards.

The 2021 GBFE Awards include eight EV-focused accolades, recognising vehicles from superminis to vans

Judged by an expert panel of Fleet World Group editors, the awards cover 38 categories, from ICE and EV cars/vans to the fleet service firms and fleet managers at the forefront of the sector.

Commenting on the awards, Fleet World editor Martyn Collins said: “Despite having faced an inordinate amount of challenges over the last 12 months, the fleet sector has continued to show how it’s at the forefront of innovation in the UK, keeping businesses going during lockdown and playing a key role in plans to ‘build back better’.

“The industry’s work on electrification – from supporting services to the vehicles themselves – is also exemplary as the UK continues on the path to net zero. My congratulations to all the winners.”
