MAUI, HI—Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has launched a new "going green" limousine service using the all-electric Tesla S 85 luxury sedan, to transport guests from the Kahului airport to the resort.
"From the moment guests step off the plane, they can begin embracing Maui's lush tropical setting—bedecked with dazzling flowers and fauna—without leaving a carbon footprint," stated Mark Simon, marketing director, Four Seasons Resort Maui.
The Tesla S 85 four-door sedan can accommodate three passengers plus the driver and is available for round trip airport service as well as for escorted trips around the island on an hourly or daily rate. The Tesla is also being added to the complimentary transportation options that are included in the Maile, Lokelani, and Elite Oceanfront Suite packages.
The black/black electric vehicle is known for its ability to travel 250 miles between charges. “All electric vehicles are fast becoming the future of automobile travel and we're pleased to offer this option to our guests who, like us, prize supporting a sustainable environment,” stated Simon.
