Our journey to electrification

Addison Lee has proudly been serving the capital for over 45 years. As a part of London’s wider transport network, we know we have a responsibility to the city’s people and its environment. London only has a future if it’s sustainable – reducing waste, conserving resources, keeping the air, water, and environment clean for all to enjoy. Our move to a fully electric fleet is a big step forward to that sustainable future.

Partners on the road to a fully electric fleet

Our partnership with JustPark

We’re delighted to share news of our partnership with the widely known parking spaces allocation technology company, JustPark. This will enable us to continue to support drivers in the transition to electric vehicles by providing exclusive access to off-street charging.


Our Partnership with Volkswagen

We begin our journey to be fully electric by 2023, by partnering with Volkswagen to roll out their ID.4 SUV. This is the largest UK purchase of electric vehicles (EV) by a private hire provider and the start of a £160m investment.


Our CEO, Liam Griffin, live on Sky News

Our CEO Liam Griffin was live on Sky News to announce our pledge to convert our whole passenger car fleet to electric vehicles by 2023, two years ahead of any other large PHV operator in London, and an investment of £160 million.

You can listen to CEO Liam Griffin’s interview with Ian King on Sky News.

Green Screens School’s Programme

We partnered with Westminster City Council and the Mayor of London to fund green screens: emissions-absorbing ivy walls that flank the perimeters of school playgrounds in highly polluted areas. Studies show that these green screens can reduce exposure to emissions by up to 40%.
