ALD Automotive enhances Minilease Premium

ALD Automotive has increased choice and specification of vehicles offered to fleets under its Minilease Premium programme.

Forming part of ALD’s 2,000-strong Poolfleet division, the programme offers high specification premium models including VW, Mercedes and Maserati to meet the short-term needs of corporate drivers, such as new, probationary or temporary staff.

With the latest update to the programme, all cars are now guaranteed to be supplied with sat-nav as standard to help further meet business drivers’ expectations, at no extra cost. This is in addition to Bluetooth, already provided as standard in all of ALD’s Minilease vehicles.

In addition, the Poolfleet rental offering has now been enhanced with high specification LCV’s for the first time.  VW’s latest Transporter Highlines have now been added to the line-up, in both long and short wheelbase formats, along with a Kombi option to provide businesses with a luxurious yet practical short-term solution.

With recent improvements in petrol technology, Poolfleet has also added the VW Golf 1.4 TSI GT Edition to their fleet. With low CO2 emissions of 113 g/k, this Golf offers a strong BIK saving compared to its diesel counterpart.

Adrian Temple, head of rental services at ALD Automotive, said: “These latest additions help ensure that our Minilease Premium solution stands out in the marketplace by offering true driver appeal as well as a cost-effective and flexible solution to ad hoc staffing needs.

“The addition of the petrol-powered cars will aid both employees and companies alike through reduced taxation costs. The new premium vans also enhance the offering to ensure we can offer a market-leading vehicle line-up that ticks all the right boxes for everyone.”
