EVision Supercars goes live with Tesla chauffeur fleet
A new Kent-based company has launched a chauffeur service based exclusively around the battery-electric Tesla Model S luxury model. EVision Supercars has launched a fleet of 34 Tesla Model S cars from its headquarters in Rochester, Kent, available for hire as licensed chauffeur cars or for self-drive hire.
The company, is part of plant hire specialist HE Services Group, is targeting environmentally-conscious individuals and businesses primarily in London and the Home Counties, but can deliver anywhere in the country if the client requires.
All the Tesla S cars are fitted with the longest-range 85kWh battery, capable of 312 miles of range between charges. Of these, 13 have the 416bhp Performance pack, and two are the Performance+ version, which features an upgraded chassis.
EVision Supercars is aiming to operate its fleet on three-year cycle in line with the vehicle’s four-year warranty and eight-year battery warranty, and plans to add the Model X SUV and compact executive Model III once these are available in Europe.
HE Services Group chairman Hugh Edeleanu said: “People are increasingly looking to hire premium cars for both business and leisure and we’re excited to be the UK’s first to offer the Tesla Model S in both the rental and chauffeur markets.”
The chauffeur service is premium priced: cars can be hired with driver per hour or per day, and set charges for popular transfers such as major airports are available.
