Gary Burns, Service Manager at Riverside Volvo, said: “It is fantastic to see Volvo win ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the AM Awards, which is one of the most prestigious and respected award ceremonies within the industry.

“This award demonstrates Volvo’s commitment to its ambitious electrification plans, as society heads towards a more sustainable future on the road, ahead of the government’s plan to ban the sale of new pure-petrol and diesel cars in 2030.

“At Riverside Volvo, we regularly encourage Doncaster drivers to look ahead to a more sustainable future with our range of fully electric and petrol-electric hybrid vehicles.

"We know that investing in anything new and unfamiliar can be a daunting experience, especially something as integral and important to everyday life as a car.

"As this award shows, our team of experts are here to offer their specialist knowledge and to answer any questions or concerns drivers may have about electrification.”

Riverside Volvo is open for services and MoT tests, as well as appointments to discuss its range of electric, hybrid, petrol, diesel and Volvo Selekt Approved Used Cars.
