The 2024 AM Awards Special: read here why they won

Welcome to our special report focused on the winners of the 2024 AM Awards.

Find out who won what at the this year’s automotive retail industry event, and more importantly why, on the pages of this special digital publication.

Inside, you can read about what made the Best Dealership of the Year so special, why the Toyota C-HR won the New Car of the Year trophy and which industry titan was inducted into the Hall of Fame and much much more…

What a wonderful night! It was all about celebrations and excellence, but, of course, it was also a great chance to talk shop.

The used car market delivered a couple of major tremors last year as values of pre-owned electric cars dropped rapidly, and then came a broader market correction.

Thankfully, we could see from our winners that well-led dealerships have coped well. Now much more focus has returned to the skills needed to sell new cars, since OEMs have normalised supply.

But, faced with higher costs to change, many potential retail customers still need that extra help to buy. Dealerships are honing their marketing and sales activity to win business. And many are taking on the challenge of getting Joe Public to spend their own money on an electric vehicle.

My thanks to all who entered the AM Awards this time.

The information we ask for is vital to enable our judges to robustly review and debate the finest submissions.

I’m grateful to all of our judges for putting in the many days it takes to ensure we select the right finalists and the most deserving winners from the many entries we receive.

Thanks also to our 2024 awards auditors, the automotive team at UHY Hacker Young, which has done an outstanding job in interviewing entrants in the major dealer group categories to glean vital additional insights and verify their claims.
