2022 has been a big year for Cheltenham's Cleevely Motors and Cleevely Electric Vehicles.

Not only has Cleevely Motors celebrated its 60th anniversary, but in September it won the Independent Garage Association's innovation award, business improvement award and overall independent garage of the year award.

In October, Cleevely Motors was shortlisted for Top Garage 2022 within the aftermarket category, while Cleevely Motors and Cleevely Electric Vehicles won micro business of the year at the SoGlos Gloucestershire Business Awards 2022.

This was swiftly followed by recognition for Cleevely EV in the Servicesure EV specialist of the year category.

Owner Matt Cleevely said: 'Considering we're a small Cheltenham-based business, we really are smashing it nationally in the independent aftermarket.

'In doing this, we are paving the way for other garages like ourselves to meet the customer needs of electric and hybrid vehicle owners.

'It is definitely the most awards we have ever received in a year.

'In particular, the Servicesure independent EV specialist win gives us reassurance we are going the right thing and helps to acknowledge that electric vehicles are entering the aftermarket and the trade should not be put off by this.

‘It is fantastic to win and to work in a business that is recognised for what it does. We work really hard to deliver for our customers and enjoy every minute of it and this will only inspire us to work even harder and continue to develop what we do.’
