Limousines used to be just for the wealthy. It was the norm to see businessmen, Hollywood stars and politicians travel in one.

Now, times have changed. The public is hiring limos for almost any occasion – proms, anniversaries, proposals, bachelor/bachelorette parties, etc.

A limousine has this unique way of bringing a sense of prestige and suave. It creates a one-of-a-kind-grand entrance. It makes you instantly feel like a celebrity.

New York Limos Aren't Just for the Wealthy Anywmore

It’s easy to hire a limo driver. Not just large markets like LA, New York, or Miami offer limousine services anymore.

Where did the name of the beloved limo come from?

According to  EzineArticles.com, the legend is that the design of the first stretch limousine was inspired by a type of protecting hood worn by shepherds in the Limousin region of France. Also, it is assumed that the designer, or one of the designers of the car was French and named the car Limousine.

Did you know that limousine is not the name of a brand of cars, but it refers to a group of vehicles that have certain characteristics?

The basic limousines that we’re used to seeing are the stretch SUV, limo bus, or motor coach.

New York limos have come a long way. Only time will tell how limos will continue to adapt, and change the way we ride in style.

Will New York Limos Become Electric Cars?

September 22, 2011

It’s no secret that the transportation industry is changing. We’ve seen and read about all types of cars transforming into new, one-of-a-kind limousines.

Simpler days of black stretch, or hummer Limos being seen all over the streets are slowly sizzling out.

Cedar Lake, Indiana, is joining in those changes. The Town Council approved a grant that enables it to buy an electric car.

That’s right, a full-electric car!

Cedar Lake is one of 13 Lake County municipalities selected to receive the grant. The town will use the grant to obtain a Think car, which has a travel capacity of nearly 100 miles per electrical charge. The grant means the town will pay only $10 in town money toward the car.

Is this really what transportation is coming to? Will the basic New York limousine that we’ve become accustomed to fade out and become replaced with new, electric vehicles?
