Electric Vehicles

Following a successful trial in 2014, Premier now operate the largest fleet of 100% Electric Taxis in the United Kingdom.

With air pollution being a major concern in towns throughout the country, we believe these pure electric vehicles are helping to make a real difference to the people of Blackpool and the surrounding areas.

To date around 70% of our journeys are now Zero Emission.

Hybrid Vehicles

In September 2018 all diesel vehicles were removed from our fleets covering both Blackpool & Lytham St Annes' areas!

To ensure we meet our customers needs we also have the largest fleet of Hybrid Electric vehicles in the area.

We use these vehicles for everyday local journeys, nationwide and airport journeys.
