Driving A better tomorrow

London only has a future if it’s sustainable, and as a transport business serving London for almost 50 years, Addison Lee has a particular role to play in that future. Our commitment to the electrification of our passenger fleet, supporting our customers on their net zero strategy and ensuring we continue to support the communities in which we operate, is what sets us apart in our industry.

Our Fleet

In addition to our 1,000 fully electric VW ID4’s, we are very pleased to announce the addition of 600 brand new, zero-emission capable (ZEC) VW multivans onto our fleet, to replace our remaining diesel people carriers. Our entire standard passenger fleet is now set to be zero emission capable by December 2024.

The new vehicles offer passengers a sustainable version of our iconic, premium vehicles for which we are well known. Featuring fully configurable seating for up to six people, they represent the next step up in luxury passenger experience.

We have already begun the transformation of our ZEC executive services by introducing the Audi A6 and A8 onto the fleet. This move reflects our continued commitment to electrification, while providing customers with a wide range of premium vehicles to meet all their transport needs.
