At Addison Lee, we’re working to fulfil our pledge of having a fully electric passenger fleet by 2023. Passengers and drivers alike can expect comfort, space and safety from these zero-emission vehicles.
Addison Lee’s Investment in Electric Cars
Addison Lee has partnered with Volkswagen to roll out their ID.4 SUV model, which is now appearing on the streets of London. This is the largest purchase of electric vehicles by a UK private hire provider.
The Volkswagen ID.4 offers comfort and style, with several special features for drivers, and plenty of boot space for your passengers’ luggage.
We are investing £60 million in electric vehicles, and once the passenger car fleet is completely electric, this will save 20,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
We’re on track to reach this goal 2 years ahead of any other major taxi operator in London. In the meantime, we’re operating a fleet that uses both electric vehicles and low-emission diesel vehicles, and offsetting the emissions produced by the diesel vehicles. From January 2023 newly PCO licensed vehicles will need to be Zero emissions capable.
To become a driver with a trusted taxi operator and get behind the wheel of a state-of-the-art electric vehicle, join our London private hire driver team today.
Partnership will see Addison Lee partner drivers provided with access to over 20 charging networks …
