It’s Electric: The Future of Luxury Ground Transportation

The future of luxury ground transportation is here! Elegant electric cars and SUVs are now on the market. Stretch limousine and party bus models may soon follow suit.

Breaking New Ground in Luxury Ground Transportation

Since 2015, Tesla has monopolized the market of luxury electric sedans and SUVs with the launch of the Model X. However, the year 2018 is the year of the luxury electric SUV. This year saw the introduction of Jaguar’s I-Pace, Audi’s E-tron, and Mercedes’ EQC. In addition, BMW shared plans for its up and coming iNext all-electric SUV.

Let’s take a look at how these automakers are changing the future of luxury sedans and SUVs.

Tesla Model X – So Strong It Can Pull An Airplane!

 

Tesla: The Industry Pioneer

The Model X all-electric SUV was the very first of its kind. This SUV is all-wheel-drive with dual motors, autopilot capabilities, and two battery pack options (75kWh and 100 kWh). The Model X recently received a 5-star rating in every safety category by NHTSA, making it the highest safety-rated SUV on the market. This SUV has the lowest probability of rollover and overall injury of any SUV.

Tesla is expected to launch the Tesla Semi as early as next year and a next-generation Roadster in 2020. Tesla is also currently planning new interior designs for the Model S and X.

Anticipated features for these new models include:

  • larger horizontal touchscreen technology,

  • a single vent air conditioning system that runs along the entire dash,

  • a smaller and more embedded instrument cluster,

  • and a superior autonomous driving system.

 

Next year’s plans to further enhance the luxury segments of the Model S and X include major changes in the seating. The new models will have improved ventilated seats with softer, superior materials. The rear seats will also get an upgrade with a second-row console.

  • Other new additions are a wireless phone charger, improved front storage, a mobile app that enables access to remotely activate various features of the vehicle, and other connectivity features.

Due to these new features, the base prices of the Model S and X have risen. However, both of these models will offer these premium features as standard.

Tesla is also considering other advanced technical features, such as a dashcam, using its Autopilot cameras. There is even talk of an alert system to notify family members when a Tesla owner selects home as a destination in the navigation system.

Model X’s price ranges from $83,000 to $140,000, depending on battery pack options and the choice of other special features. This model’s range is 295 miles on battery alone. It comfortably seats seven, goes from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, and has a towing capacity of 5,900 lbs.

Jaguar: Changing the Game

The new I-Pace all-electric SUV is a game changer for Jaguar. Until recently, the company only manufactured luxury sports coupes and sedans.  This new vehicle is a real head turner with the true style and grace of the classic Jaguar.

 

Basic features include:

  • 18” 15-spoke alloy wheels,
  • LED headlights,
  • 8-way semi-powered Luxtec sports seats,
  • Touch Pro® Duo infotainment system,

For better driveability and safety, there’s the Drive package. This package includes blind spot assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and go and high-speed emergency braking, as well as a 360-degree surround camera.

The price for Jaguar’s I-PACE ranges from $69,500 to $85,900, depending on the choice of model and special features. Standard for all three models of the I-PACE are a 90 kWh battery with an estimated range of 234 miles, and accelerates from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds.

 

Party Bus Interior That Changes The Way You Ride

 

Audi: Modern Advances with Classic Style

The 2018 Sportback E-Tron, Audi’s all-electric SUV, is both stylish and classy. It’s also quite powerful, with nearly instantaneous torque. Its liquid-cooled, permanent-magnet-driven electric motor generates 102 hp of electric power. The acceleration is down-right impressive.

Standard features include heated front seats and a panoramic sunroof, along with keyless ignition and entry. Audi pre sense® front assists the driver prepare for an imminent front-end collision while Audi pre sense® basic aids in securing the vehicle’s seat belts and windows in the event of an emergency maneuver.

In addition, a 7-inch retractable MMI® center console display offers access to driver assistance features and functions with MMI® touch and handwriting recognition technology.

 

Advanced features are also available on the Premium Plus and Prestige models, such as:

  • Active lane assist,
  • Parking system plus with a rear-view camera,
  • Adaptive cruise control,
  • Smartphone interface,
  • And Bang & Olufsen® Sound System.

Breaking the Myths Of Affordable Limousine Service

 

Mercedes-Benz: Creating New Concepts

The EQC all-electric SUV is still in production. This concept vehicle should be available in the United States around early 2020.

Opinions differ on this SUV in relation to size, range, and performance. Two motors will power the EQC’s 80 kWh battery. The company currently claims that the battery life will be 280 miles. However, they are still using the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) testing protocol versus the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s). Therefore, the actual numbers may be 30 to 50 miles lower.

Several different driving modes are proposed for this vehicle with performance, comfort, high efficiency, low consumption, and maximum range in mind. In addition to the driving modes, Mercedes offers a wide range of regenerative braking options, including one-pedal driving.

Standard features include an onboard infotainment and navigation system, which will plan routes based on the state-of-charge of the battery pack and the location of charging stations. The Ionity charging network in Europe is expected to be significant by the time the EQC is available in Europe next year.

Mercedes will start production in Bremen, Germany sometime in 2019, where the German automaker produces its C-Class and GLC vehicles. Production in China will soon follow. To date, there is no pricing information available. The EQC’s proposed acceleration is 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds with a 280-mile battery range.

Epic Qualities You Will Find In A Chauffeured Limo Service

 

Evoke: A New Kind of Limousine Company

Evoke is an Australian limousine service whose fleet consists of Tesla electric vehicles. This company was established in 2015 with just one Tesla sedan. They now have a fleet of eight Tesla vehicles that, to date, have driven more than 25 laps around the Earth. The company recently hit a very important milestone, becoming the first to clock up more than 1 million kilometers (over 62,000 miles) with Tesla electric vehicles.

  • Over the past 3 years, the company has served 40,000 customers without a single one left stranded due to a flat battery.

Evoke founder Pia Peterson stated, “A lot of people [have] had misconceptions about electric vehicles…they were worried about the range and if they could book a long distance trip with us. We’ve certainly broken down some of those barriers, and some of those customers have gone on to buy electric vehicles themselves.”

The company plans to expand its limousine service to Sydney, followed by Melbourne and Brisbane markets. According to Peterson, Evoke is the largest Australian limousine exclusively using Tesla vehicles. However, other limousine services have also added Tesla vehicles to their limo fleet.

Peterson has noted that electric vehicles are low maintenance, with zero emissions, and provide customers with a quieter and smoother ride than conventional vehicles. She also reports that electric limousine cars are in a unique situation when it’s time to recharge. They can make downtime productive, such as when passengers are often delayed at the airport or in the city. During these wait times, the vehicles can be charged and ready to go with the ability to travel over 400 km (248 miles) on a single charge.

Book Limo Rental That’s Luxurious and Cost Effective

“I can’t afford a limo rental!”

Anyone can experience an affordable taste of luxury!

Luxury ground transportation service can be more within your budget than you think.

It’s not just about the event going off without a hitch. You have to also make sure that the trip there is a pleasant experience for everyone.

Once the event is over, there’s the question of whether the expense was worth it. It’s important to stay within your budget. However, you also want to make sure that you get the highest return on your investment.

Check out these tips to help make sure that your limo service is luxurious and cost-effective.

 

Before Booking Your Limo Rental Do This

Planning is easier the more you can prepare ahead of time.

There’s no reason to dread making arrangements for luxury ground transportation.

Have this information at the ready and you’ll save both time and money.

2018 Ultimate Guide To Booking Luxury Transportation

 

1. Take a Proper Headcount

Always count your guests or attendees before calling the limousine company. This will help you in multiple ways.

First of all, you want to make sure that you choose a vehicle that can adequately cater to your guests. Most importantly, for your budget at least, you don’t want to overspend on an oversized vehicle. You also don’t want to reserve several town cars when a single stretch limousine would do.

Make sure that you have a firm RSVP date for the event. Use the number of confirmed attendees to select your vehicle. Your limo rental company can even suggest a vehicle with your party size in mind.

2. Consider Alternative Limousine Cars

When you think of limousine service, what comes to mind?

There is much more to luxury ground transportation than stretch limos and town cars.

These days, you can upgrade a stretch limousine to a stretch SUV. If you really want to go all out, look into a party van – “Sometimes called a party bus.” For business event transportation, you may prefer something less flashy. If you’re looking for something simple with high passenger capacity, there are executive vans for that.

The point is, don’t settle for something that isn’t going to do the job. Have an honest conversation with your limo service. They can recommend the best vehicle for your needs and budget.

Could Your Business Be Saving Money By Using A Limo Service?

 

3. Book Early

The farther in advance you book your limo rental, the more likely you are to get the best deal. Waiting until the last minute leaves your options lacking when it comes to vehicles and pickup times.

What could happen if you wait? All the limousine cars of a certain type may be booked out already. The chauffeurs could already have their pickup schedule full on your date. Don’t wait around and miss your chance to book the most economical luxury vehicle options.

Leadership Skills That Every Business Professional Can Use

 

4. Plan Your Route

The best way to ensure a cost-effective limo rental is strategically planning your route. Even if you’re familiar with the area, work with your limo company to find the best way to your destination.

You want the route that is the perfect combination of fast, safe, and simple. You will also need to factor in heavy traffic times. Make sure that you’re traveling when the road is least congested. This will decrease travel time, as well as the likelihood of delays due to accidents.

5. Be Open to Compromise

Not all luxury vehicles come with the same amenities. If you’re on a budget, you will have to compromise somewhere.

For example, let’s think about business event transportation. Rather than booking town cars for each executive, consider a limo bus or executive van.

Headed For Business Travel?

4 Reasons To Hire A Town Car Service

Think of these as luxury carpools. Some of these vehicles come with amenities comparable to what you’d expect in a limousine. Options may include a beverage station, flat screen TVs, and premium sound systems.

6. Book Directly with a Limo Service

Don’t rush into a deal that looks too good to be true. When you find deals online or through travel companies, you may be dealing with middlemen. You have to pay each entity between you and the limo rental company. Some of these middlemen add about 20 percent or higher commission to that offered by a normal limousine company.

To get the best deal, cut out the middleman and work with the limo service directly. You’ll save money, and a lot of headaches, too. Working directly with the limo rental company allows them to better serve you. You can rest easy knowing that you’ve arranged exactly what you need at the best price.

Bottom Line

Organizing efficient, cost-effective limo service doesn’t need to be complicated.These tips will help ensure enjoyable travel for everyone, without making a big dent in the wallet.

At A1A Airport & Limousine Service, we make sure that our customers get the most value for money. We’ve been providing safe, efficient, affordable limo service in South Florida since 1986. We are based in Boca Raton, but provide nationwide and global service through our trusted affiliates.

Epic Qualities You Will Find In A Chauffeured Limo Service

There is nothing better than enjoying luxury ground transportation in a high-quality limousine.

When looking for the best available limo service, it’s not just about the limousine cars. It is also very important to consider the quality of the company’s chauffeurs. After all, they will be responsible for passenger safety.

We’ve outlined a list of some epic qualities you should look for in a limo service.

Be sure to hire a chauffeur who measures up to ensure that your luxury ground transportation experience is of the highest standard.

Why Choose Black Car Service?

Riding with a well-trained professional limo driver is essential for any occasion. Your driver needs to be punctual when time is of the essence for business event transportation or corporate travel.

Style and class are paramount for a special party event, wedding transportation, or prom limousines.

  • Navigating airport traffic can be a nightmare, but a professional chauffeur stays calm while driving your airport shuttle. You can even hire a driver for a night out on the town with friends. You can relax and have fun, knowing that everyone has a safe and reliable ride home.

Breaking the Myths Of Affordable Limousine Service

 

All Chauffeurs Are Not Created Equal

Here at A1A Limousine Service, we pride ourselves in maintaining an impressive and wide variety of limos. Offering diversity within our fleet of limousine cars ensures that we have the perfect one for your personal needs.

We also demand the most highly qualified chauffeurs. An exceptional chauffeur can really make a difference in your limousine experience.

Before You Book, Ask Yourself, Does Your Limo Service Offer These Key Features?

1) Professionalism

Current & Valid License – All chauffeurs are required to have a current and valid license.

Clean Driving Record – Ensuring the safety of all limousine passengers is our top priority. Every chauffeur must have a spotless driving record. Clients should never hesitate to request a review of their limo chauffeur’s driving record.

2) Style & Attitude

Professional Attire and Personal Grooming – It is essential that our chauffeurs also look the part. That means impeccable grooming and appropriate professional attire. You can expect your chauffeur to arrive in the classic black and white uniform, complete with the hat.

Calm and Pleasant Demeanor – No matter what, it is necessary for chauffeurs to maintain a calm and pleasant demeanor. Party limos can get loud. Brides are often nervous. There are times when plans may change at the last minute.

  • Therefore, the limo chauffeur must be adaptable. Chauffeurs must be able to handle a variety of situations and understand that things can change quickly. A professional chauffeur should always demonstrate respect and care for the client.

3) Experience

Proper Training – To provide you with the best luxury ground transportation experience, chauffeurs must be highly trained in all aspects of limo driving. It’s not just about having the best driving ability.

  • Chauffeurs also need extensive firsthand knowledge of the geographical areas that they serve. They must keep up with any current accident reports, construction, or high-traffic areas to avoid.

 

  • Limousine chauffeurs are trained, prepared and ready to take action to assist passengers. This could mean anything from assisting with the long train of a bride’s gown to helping to steady a disabled patron.

4) Quality Over Quantity 

Customer Service – A limousine chauffeur must offer the highest quality of customer service. Limo service chauffeurs are responsible for providing safe transport in situations both luxurious and mundane. They need to be reliable, versatile, and ready to assist in any way necessary.

  • When alcohol is often involved, the limo chauffeur may need to be more patient and understanding.

 

  • Discretion is key. This must be guaranteed, because chauffeur may be privy to private personal or corporate information.

 

  • It is very important that the limo chauffeur enjoy working with people. He or she must be intuitive about when to converse with the passengers and when to give them privacy. There are all kinds of people in the world and every client is different. A professional chauffeur will recognize the best approach to each customer.

What is Town Car Service Without It’s Chauffeur?

Learn More About the Face of Luxury Travel Here

 

Johnny on the Spot – The professional chauffeur is always ready for emergencies. Limo service is about luxury and convenience. Therefore, a chauffeur should carry essential items, such as umbrellas, a shoe-shine kit, and even a sewing kit.

  • Though the chauffeur should have extensive knowledge of the service area, it’s not enough to rely on memory. They must be ready to divert or change course, as needed or requested. Be sure that your limo service maintains vehicles with GPS onboard for these quick changes.

 

  • The chauffeur should be prepared for medical emergencies, but also know how to get to the closest hospitals in the area. It is absolutely necessary that the chauffeur understand the possibilities that can arise in these dire situations.

5) Honest & Dependable

Integrity and Honesty – Your limo chauffeur should display integrity, confidence, strength, and dependability at all times. You should be able to trust information from your chauffeur without question. Any limo service hiring less than upstanding chauffeurs is a major red flag.

Punctual and Dependable – Limousine transportation is often time critical. For instance, weddings, bridal showers, business meetings, or airport transports must be on time. No matter what the occasion, the client has the right to a timely arrival and departure.

  • Therefore, a limo chauffeur should arrive at least 15 to 20 minutes early. He or she should always be aware of weather reports, accidents, construction, or other road hazards that may cause delays. Your limo service should provide a chauffeur that you can depend on to get you where you need to go.

Company Loyalty – Clients may ask the chauffeur questions about the limousine company. A professional and company loyal chauffeur will promote the limousine service company. He or she will offer information that benefits both the company and the client.

  • In addition, the limousine chauffeur will always do their very best to represent the company with the highest quality of service, safety, comfort, and reliability.
