HUMMING BIRD (COLINDALE) KIA WINS GOELECTRIC AWARD
Humming Bird (Colindale) named as winner of the GoElectric Award at the Kia Dealer Excellence Awards 2020
The award recognises achievements in electrified vehicle sales and staff training
The dealership was also amongst the top 25 for After Sales Excellence
Humming Bird (Colindale) has won the GoElectric Award at the 2020 Kia Dealer Excellence Awards, announced on 15 January 2021.
Located in Colindale, North London, the dealership was praised for its sales and commitment to staff training in Kia’s rapidly expanding and award-winning range of eco cars. The dealership was further recognised as the sixth best performing in After Sales during 2020.
Steven Hicks, Sales Director at Kia Motors (UK) Limited, commented: “Many congratulations to Humming Bird (Colindale) for winning this award. This is a particularly important award with Kia’s fast-growing range of award winning electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as within the broader context of the UK’s 2030 ambitions.
“Electrified vehicles are new, exciting and economical, but that novelty can mean customers are unfamiliar with the technology. Recognising this, Humming Bird trained its staff to be better able to help customers choose the right electric or hybrid car to suit their needs. Like Kia’s electric cars, the dealership really went the extra mile.”
Larry Wood, Managing Director for Humming Bird (Colindale) added: “In these challenging times, we couldn’t be more proud to receive this recognition from Kia. Electrified cars are the future for our business and we’ve worked hard to make sure our staff are fully trained to be able to help our customers make the switch from petrol or diesel, often for the first time. With a stellar line-up of Kia electrified vehicles already available, in addition to many more exciting models to come, we can’t wait to see what the future holds. Thank you to all our staff for making this possible, as well as to Kia for the recognition.”
Humming Bird (Colindale) Kia stocks a wide range of new and used eco cars, including the Kia e-Niro and Soul EV fully-electric cars, capable of up to 282 miles range from a single charge – as well as hybrid versions of the Niro and All-New Sorento SUV plus a range of Plug-in Hybrids from XCeed to the soon-to-arrive Sorento Plug-in Hybrid. These are designed to suit all customer needs and make the transition to electrified power simple and seamless. Each model is also backed by Kia’s reassuring seven-year/100,000 mile warranty as standard.
