CAP national research manager Martin Ward says he has started discussions with the industry about holding a sale to get a clearer picture of how the market views alternatively-fuelled vehicles. He said: 'The market needs a special LPG auction, where the leasing industry can offer for sale some of its LPG vehicles – restricted in this case to cars only.'
He commented that remarketing companies and LPG vehicle manufacturers could also supply stock. 'I am not talking particularly large numbers but such a sale would be highly revealing and maybe encourage the establishment of these vehicles on the used market.
'Everyone I have spoken to welcomes the idea of a dedicated sale. In fact the response from BCA has been more than positive, declaring that it would be happy to play host and advertise it to its buyers.'
