A Look Back on the Year of Electric Awards

Come and join us as we look back at all the Volkswagen Group electric models which have won awards over the past year.

It’s been a very busy year of awards for the electric models which are available to test drive and order from Pulman Group. The Volkswagen ID.3 has scooped over 14 awards since its launch and the SKODA ENYAQ iV has been awarded the title of ‘Car of the Year’ on numerous occasions. Let’s take a look at some of the highlight awards across Volkswagen, SKODA, SEAT and CUPRA from the past 12 months.


Since the launch of the Volkswagen ID. family in 2020 the awards have never stopped for the fully electric Volkswagen models.

Let’s start with the ID.3…

As previously mentioned, the ID.3 has won over 14 awards since it’s launch in 2020. We’re not going to list them all but we want to highlight just how many awards the electric hatchback has received over a short time-frame in 2021.

• ‘Best Electric Family Car’ – WhatCar? Electric Car Awards 2021

The new SEAT Leon e-HYBRID stole the spotlight at the Driving Electric Awards 2021 by being named the ‘Best Small Plug-in Hybrid Car’.

Certainly not a car to shy away from pleasing the best of both worlds; the Leon e-HYBRID is capable of travelling up to 36 miles (WLTP) with zero CO2 emissions before the petrol engine starts. Combine both the electric and petrol engine together and you’re looking at a total of around 497 mile range (WLTP).

At Pulman SEAT the Leon e-HYBRID and Leon Estate e-HYBRID are now available to test drive and order. Find out more.



The standalone CUPRA brand initially launched at Pulman Group in late 2020, which started with a six-figure showroom refurbishment and a new CUPRA corner, dedicated to the brand. Since the UK launch, CUPRA have released a small range of performance models to the market.


The CUPRA Formentor SUV is available with two plug-in hybrid engines (204PS and 245PS) which are paired with a 1.4-litre petrol power unit with a 115PS (85kW) electric motor, powered by a 13kWh lithium-ion battery pack offering up to 31 miles of electric range (based on WLTP).
