Addison Lee extends Aston Barclay deal as Euro 6 remarketing starts

Addison Lee has extended its used vehicle remarketing contract with Aston Barclay for a further 12 months as it starts to defleet the first of its Euro 6 diesel vehicles.


The Euro 6 diesel Ford Galaxy vehicles form part of Addison Lee’s fleet of 5,000 vehicles, all of which are ULEZ-compliant

The private hire giant invested £17m in a fleet of Ford Galaxy vehicles three years ago in preparation for the introduction of the London ULEZ on 8 April 2019, with the defleeting of the vehicles giving London used car buyers a “unique opportunity to benefit from the latest high-specification, low emission vehicles”, according to Aston Barclay.

“It is fantastic to continue to build on our already highly successful partnership with Addison Lee across our group and particularly at Westbury where we are proud to have achieved 100% conversions for every single Addison Lee sale for the past two years,” explained Martin Potter, group managing director, Aston Barclay. “An interesting development to the relationship is the changing stock profile with Euro 6 now returning to market.

“In combination with the high specification of the Addison Lee fleet in general, these vehicles represent great value for money especially for those operating in or around the capital.”

The Euro 6 defleet move by Addison Lee follows an investment in 1,200 Volkswagen Sharan models – an investment valued at £41m – earlier this year as part of the company’s journey towards a zero-emissions capable fleet by 2022. The Sharan sits alongside the Ford Galaxy and the Mercedes E and S-Class as part of the Addison Lee Group Select Service fleet.
