Our Vehicles

The car club has four vehicles located across Leicester but available to use wherever needed.

We have a range of practical vehicles from small cars for short trips around town to larger vehicles which can carry more people and luggage. All vehicles use unleaded petrol – we do not purchase diesel vehicles to minimise urban air pollution. We typically average around three members per vehicle, so a good mix of requirements, plus co‑ordination, avoids most difficulties and conflicts of needs.

Our current vehicles are:

  • Renault Grand Picasso – a seven-seater, great for trips with many people or for lots of luggage
  • Toyota Yaris (manual) – small car (three-door) with decent amount of storage space
  • Toyota Yaris (automatic) – five-door
  • Vauxhall Astra – five-door car

Vehicles are based in different locations across the city to match up with the needs of our current membership. Each vehicle is based with a member of the car club – the ‘Keeper’ of the vehicle.

Current approximate locations of vehicles (at June 2022) are:

  • Wigston/Aylestone
  • Thurncourt
  • Evington Village
  • West End (off Narborough Road)

Don’t despair if a vehicle isn’t kept near where you live – we often move where vehicles are kept to best fit with the needs of our membership.
