    Full catalogue details are available from the BCA website at www.british-car-auctions.co.uk and every car in the sale will be covered by the BCA Assured programme.

    Robert Sturley Southern Area Auction Manager for Lex Autolease said: “As a business Lex Autolease are very aware of our responsibilities to the environment, as are our customers, and as the largest UK contract hire provider we feel we have a responsibility to develop and enhance the used car hybrid sales market.”

    Alan Gupwell BCA Corporate Account Manger for Lex Autolease added “This sale addresses the key issue of supply affecting the hybrid market, because we typically don’t see high numbers of these cars reaching the used market.”

    He continued “It will come as no surprise to anyone involved in used cars that with continuing high fuel prices and other economic pressures, motorists are looking very carefully at the running costs of their vehicles.  General demand for low emission, high MPG hybrid cars is correspondingly high, and we expect to see significant levels of buyer interest in this sale.
