Winners were announced by Robert Llewellyn on the 24th November at the first Fully Charged AWARDS, powered by myenergi in front of a sizable audience of industry leaders in the RAI’s stunning auditorium in Amsterdam. Besides Carver, the winners list includes VW, Porsche, MG, Fiat, and Tesla.
Nominees were selected after a ‘large-scale survey’ of the Fully Charged SHOW audience, then initial candidates were curated by the team itself, plus a panel of 15 energy and transportation experts, before arriving at the finalists in each category.
Voting opened online on 9th November and closed on 16th November and attracted several thousand Electric Vehicle drivers who voted for their winners in the 15 categories of the first ‘consumer choice’ awards for clean energy and electric vehicles. Zij brachten hun stem uit op de finalisten in de 15 categorieën van de eerste consumentenkeuze awards voor schone energie en elektrische voertuigen.
Carver’s General Manager, Giel Franken says, “This is validation that not only we think that it’s time get out of our SUV’s and into the right-sized vehicles to support the energy transition. Our customers and those who voted agree that the Carver is the best and most efficient solution to get around town.
