Blacklane introduces a Mercedes EQS chauffeur fleet for the UAE
The Mercedes EQS would be piloted by academy-trained chauffeurs
Always preferred chauffeured travel, but Uber Black didn’t make the luxury cut? Well, Blacklane, a leading global chauffeur-hailing service, announces the launch of its first all-electric fleet for the residents of Dubai. The all-electric fleet, a regional first, comprises customised top-of-the-line Mercedes EQS’ to be driven by academy-trained chauffeurs.
For the unaware, Blacklane operates in more than 50 countries worldwide, offering a range of Chauffeur Hailing services, including one-way, return journeys; airport transfers; hourly and daily bookings. The same would be available to Dubai residents in DIFC, Downtown Dubai, d3, Business Bay and DXB Airport, with plans to roll out across the city later this year. Inter-emirate travel would also be on offer.
Customers would benefit from Blacklane’s transparent pricing that remains fixed when booking via the mobile app and travelling in luxury in the two-tone Mercedes EQS’ with its ventilated seats and in-chair massage features. These all-electric Mercedes sedans would be piloted by impeccably dressed chauffeurs, including female chauffeurs who work exclusively for Blacklane. Each of these chauffeurs goes through Blacklane’s proprietary Chauffeur Training Academy. Launched in September 2022, the program is developed to train all chauffeurs to the highest standards of service, safety, etiquette, and discretion.
“We have successfully served hundreds of thousands of customers across the Middle East in the past five years,” says Nicolas Soucaille, General Manager United Arab Emirates. “As part of our commitment to the environment, we are proud to offer an all-electric fleet, which will dramatically reduce carbon emissions. Additionally, with the launch of our on-demand services,we will provide an unrivaled experience for our guests, whilst taking a step forward towards a more sustainable future.”
Blacklane’s EV fleet rollout aligns perfectly with UAE’s announcement of 2023 being the year of sustainability. It further builds on the recent investment by the Gargash Group, one of the UAE’s leading conglomerates. It sees the chauffeur-hailing service capitalise on a supercharging network to satisfy customer expectations around sustainability.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in Cars, Green
