Hybrid commercial vehicle manufacturer Ashwoods Automotive has scooped the Manufacturing Innovation Award at the Insider Made in the South West Awards, held in Bristol.

Neil Tague, editor at South West Business Insider which organises the Awards, said: “The South West has some really smart businesses providing next-generation solutions in their chosen fields, and Ashwoods is one of the best.

“It has identified a market requirement for a more efficient and environmentally-friendly way to run commercial fleets and is meeting that demand superbly.”

Ashwoods Automotive is the UK's largest supplier of hybrid commercial vehicles. The company is the sole hybrid vehicle supplier to the Department for Transport’s Low Carbon Vehicle Procurement Programme (LCVPP), which provides subsidies to public sector bodies purchasing hybrid vans and minibuses.
