Langham mixes green with bling

Whoever said you can’t be both bling and eco-friendly? The Langham Auckland has taken delivery a brand new fleet of hybrid limousines. The fleet consists of three Lexus LS600hL, vehicles which are the world’s first V8 hybrids and operate on a fuel consumption of 9.3L/100km, less than that of a Toyota Camry.The designer limousines come complete with push button start, individual climate control seats, a 19 speaker audio system, a rear seat entertainment system with a 9” LCD DVD screen, rear privacy shades, self closing doors, rear view camera, 10 parking sensors, and 12 SRS airbags. Each limousine retails at over NZ$250,000.

The vehicles are to be used by the five-star hotel’s corporate, diplomatic and leisure guests for airport transfers, business meetings, and for shopping and sightseeing tours. An added service for customers is the en-route check-in whereby guests are able to check-in to the hotel during their journey.

The Langham Auckland’s managing director Mr John Dick said, “Being sustainable is a huge process and we are the first to say we have a long way to go on our journey, but we are committed to making that journey and already our results are promising and the feedback from our guests is extremely positive.”
