year put the wrong fuel type into their vehicles. The vehicles will
be provided on a four-year/100,000-mile, fully maintained contract
hire basis. The 20 vans were delivered at the end of March,
following a specialisation process to meet the AA’s build
specification involving 10 suppliers, which was co-ordinated and
overseen by Lombard Vehicle Management.
