Addison Lee, London’s largest private hire and taxi firm, has added 600 new Volkswagen Multivan hybrid vehicles to its fleet, reflecting its commitment to premium, sustainable transport solutions.

The new hybrid vehicles will replace the diesel people carriers currently on the fleet. The newly-acquired fleet of Volkswagen Multivans adds to an already 1,000-strong fleet of all-electric Volkswagen ID.4 vehicles, and 400 Audi A6 low-emission vehicles.

Addison Lee chose the Multivan due to its premium versatility, comfort for up to six passengers, and its low-emission hybrid powertrains – aligning with its goal to have a zero emission-capable fleet by Spring 2024.

Craig Cavanagh, National Fleet Manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said: “The Volkswagen Multivan is one of the few vehicles on the market that combines true space for up to six passengers with premium, durable quality. Hybrid powertrains ensure the vehicles can be used in low-emission areas, without hitting the bottom line of a company’s tax liability.”

Addison Lee is the number one taxi and private hire choice for 80% of FTSE 100 businesses.

Addison Lee CEO, Liam Griffin, said: “As the first private hire operator in the capital to introduce electric vehicles at scale, we remain committed to enhancing our fleet and supporting our customers with their net zero journeys.

Our investment in the Multivans not only provides our passengers with a sustainable version of the iconic vehicles we have always been known for, but reflects our commitment to electrification, with our entire standard fleet set to be zero emission capable by Spring 2024.”
