Our Vehicles

The car club has four vehicles located across Leicester with a fifth currently in Uppingham 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 3 members per vehicle, so a good mix of requirements, plus co‑ordination, avoids most difficulties and conflicts of needs.

Our current vehicles are:

  • Renault Clio – small (three-door) four/five-seater hatchback
  • 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
  • Toyota Corolla – automatic small 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 are:

  • Clarendon Park
  • Wigston/Aylestone
  • Humberstone
  • Evington Village
  • Uppingham

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.
