I was also told that after I Import my Car to apply for an IVA test, the DVSA require a statement from the manufacturer that must be specific to the exact VIN of the vehicle you are importing, proving that the car complies with electric safety EU directive ‘ECE Reg. 100.01’.

I then discover that some manufacturer or vehicles, depending on where I import my car EV vehicle form can offer me this ECE with more facilitations than other countries
