Limousine transportation has shaped the way we regard the wealthy and powerful. It has become an icon of transportation depicting class, glamour, elitism and elegance on four wheels. Drive through New York City in true style with one of moveo’s long stretch limousines.
The concept of having a chauffeur drive you wherever you need to go has been around for quite a few centuries. From the beginning the rich and powerful, royalty and nobility around the world and throughout time have had a chauffeur drive the carriage for them. Initially it was that the driver rode in a separate compartment from the passenger. And although today that does remain similar on a long stretch limousine, a small window divides both compartments.
The word “limousine” comes from the region of Limousin in France. Today it is called Limoges. Locals used to wear a hooded cloak that was later adopted by chauffeurs driving carriages to protect them from rain, snow and other climatic difficulties.
As time went by and the automobile was introduced, the same practice migrated to the driving of motor vehicles. The first “long stretch” car was introduced in 1928. This type of car was originally called “Big Band Buses” which were used to transport musicians and their musical instruments. These famous musicians include personalities like Glenn Miller.
Today, the limousine industry represents over $4 Billion dollars of revenue a year, with over 4,000 providers in the US, employing more than 42,000 employees across the nation. As our culture has evolved, so has the use of limousines. Now not only royality or nobility have access to this service, but it is open to creative professionals, and other people who wish to have a soothing yet glamourous transport to their destination.
