The appeal in electric cars has grown in recent years. However, with high price tags attached to many models it can be difficult to experience the joy of riding in an electric car. However, here at LC Chauffeurs, we have two electric vehicles in our fleet, so if you want to experience luxury travel with no carbon emissions, our Chauffeur Services are exactly what you're looking for.

The First Electric Cars

Did you know that the first electric cars were produced during the 1880s? They were popular n the late 19th century; however they lost popularity in the early 20th century as a result of advancements in internal combustion engines and mass production methods reducing the cost to produce gasoline vehicles.

The Return Of Electric Drive Vehicles

In the current century a combination of advancements in battery technology alongside numerous issues caused by air pollution resulted in a renaissance in electric cars. After all with the serious risks associated with climate change, it's only natural that people seek to find alternatives in their lives that help them to reduce their carbon footprint. Additionally, numerous governments (both national and local) have established incentives for electric vehicles.

Tesla Cars

One of the more well-known automotive companies that produce electric cars is Tesla, Inc (formally known as Tesla Motors, Inc). After just 10 years in the market, it was ranked as the best plug-in passenger car manufacturer in the world in 2018. Their business strategy was to begin with low volumes of high-priced luxury cars, then in time they plan to move into larger markets with lower priced vehicles.

Two of their vehicles targeted at the luxury car market are the Model S and the Model X; the latter of which LC Chauffeurs has two of in our fleet.

Tesla Model X

The Tesla Model X

This vehicle oozes style, however it isn't just a pretty face, and it is the ideal choice for a chauffeur service. With enough room to fit seven adults plus luggage, packed with enough power for 315 miles of range, alongside its 5-star US NCAP safety rating, the Model X has everything you need for a swift, relaxing, and comfortable ride.

Speaking of swift, this vehicle is obscenely fast. When you think of an electric vehicle, thoughts are often drawn to milk floats; however this SUV can accelerate from nought to sixty in just 2.7 seconds. To put that in some context, a Porsche 911 GT2 RS from last year (2018) accelerates from nought to sixty in 2.6 seconds, and t hat is a 2 door coupé, whereas the Tesla Model X is a SUV.

However, the Model X isn't just a speedy SUV, it's also a designed for safety, another reason why this vehicle is a superb choice for chauffeuring. We mentioned that it achieved a 5-star US NCAP safety rating, however did you know that the Model X was the first every SUV to achieve this raging in every category and subcategory? It also has the lowest probability of occupant injury, and a rollover risk half that of any other SUV on the road. However, the safety features don't end there, the car has eight surround cameras providing the driver with 360 degrees of vision, twelve ultrasonic sensors providing detection, and a forward facing radar to help the driver see through heavy rain, fog, dust, and even beyond the vehicle ahead.

Simply put, this vehicle is amazing. So if you want to experience the pleasure of riding in a Model X, get in touch with the LC Chauffeurs team and book your travel with us today.
