Porsche Centre Wolverhampton is delighted to announce that we have won new retailer of the year in the AM Awards 2018.
The award ceremony took place on 8 February 2018 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham. Steph McGovern, BBC Business and Financial reporter, presented the award and commented on what made Porsche Centre Wolverhampton stand out from the other contenders: "On opening in April 2016, as a newly built Centre with no customer database, with only half the workforce required, the Centre not only met, but exceeded the performance targets which had been set for the Sales, Service and Parts departments. This was achieved whilst also maintaining customer satisfaction levels at a consistently high level."
Simon Priest, Centre Principal commented: ‘We are all over the moon to have won the new retailer of the year category. I am so proud of the team at our Porsche Centre and the incredible hard work they have put in to make our Centre a success, it’s fantastic the industry has recognised that too. We look forward to another year of delivering top service for our customers."
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
