TfL names Automotive Leasing as approved Electric Vehicle supplier
Automotive Leasing, LeasePlan’s specialist public sector fleet services provider, has tendered for TfL’s new electric vehicle lease framework and been successful.
The new procurement agreement is designed to further the government’s plans to increase the uptake of electric vehicles in the capital. It should also reinforce London’s position as a global leader in green motoring technology. Vehicles from 16 approved suppliers will be available to the Greater London Authority and other public sector bodies.
LeasePlan was the first UK leasing company to add the fully electric Nissan Leaf to its order book and in April last year, Automotive Leasing provided Dumfries and Galloway council with the first Nissan Leaf to a UK council fleet and the first range extended Vauxhall Ampera to a UK Council this year.
Automotive Leasing’s supply capabilities also include the provision of electric sweepers and other municipal vehicles. Tim Meadows, director at Automotive Leasing said: “We’re delighted to be named in the latest framework. It reflects our long-standing commitment to the environment and providing cost effective, innovative public sector leasing solutions.”
