BCA has staged its first-ever Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) sale, showing strong demand for Euro 6-compliant vehicles ahead of the April launch of the London ULEZ.
Held at BCA Blackbushe on 12th March, the multi-vendor event featured only Euro 6 compliant or electric/hybrid commercial vehicles that can enter the Ultra Low Emission Zone without charge. This included SWB, MWB and LWB panel vans, Lutons, tippers, flatbeds and car-derived models, with competitive bidding reported across the board.
A total of 148 vehicles were sold at the event for an average value in excess of 104% of CAP Clean, with one vendor achieving an average of 113% of CAP Clean.
On the back of strong feedback from buyers and sellers alike, BCA has committed to a second ULEZ Sale at BCA Blackbushe on Tuesday 14th May.
Jon Gilbert, business development director commercial vehicles at BCA, said: “This unique event offered LCV buyers and operators a wide variety of ULEZ-compliant vehicles to meet a diverse range of requirements. Buyers could bid with confidence because they knew every vehicle had been fully checked by BCA for Euro 6 compliance pre-sale.”
Gilbert added: “The demand for Euro 6 is growing and this will increase when the London ULEZ goes live in April. Several major buyers attending the sale confirmed that they only retail Euro 6-compliant vehicles and, as a result, found the event exceptionally useful.”
