Car Dealer Power 2024: We reveal who has made the shortlist for this year’s awards

  • Firms in the running for the 2024 Car Dealer Power awards are named
  • Final judging begins after votes cast by Car Dealer readers in online survey
  • Top suppliers and manufacturers will be announced on July 3
  • Special awards video premiere will also reveal Car of the Year

Time 10:51 am, May 23, 2024

The Car Dealer Power 2024 survey has closed and we can now announce the shortlist for this year’s awards.

Voted for by Car Dealer readers, they honour the finest motor trade suppliers in the business as well as the best car manufacturers to represent in the UK.

We had more entries than ever this year and all the winners and highly commendeds will be revealed during a special video presentation on Wednesday, July 3 at 6pm.

A shortlist for the top car manufacturer isn’t published, nor is there one for the Car of the Year, but the full results for those will also be announced in the video on the night.

We launched the survey in February and today we’re pleased and proud to reveal the shortlist for the supplier categories after readers’ comments and votes were totted up.

The Car Dealer team will now assess the entries and judges will confirm the winners and highly commendeds over the next few weeks.

Car Dealer founder James Baggott said: ‘With a record number of entries this year, it has been a true battle royale, with some categories practically neck and neck.

‘Make sure you don’t miss our video presentation on July 3, because it promises to be a thrill a minute!’
