Global chauffeur service Blacklane acquires majority stake in Havn
Global chauffeur service Blacklane has acquired a majority stake in Havn, London’s all-electric chauffeur service, accelerating the electrification of its private hire fleet around the world.
The investment, completed in November 2020, will allow Blacklane to grow Havn’s service and offer more zero-emission rides in London, as well as adding the world’s first premium all-electric Jaguar I-PACE performance SUV to its global fleet for the first time. Blacklane has operated in the capital since 2013, part of a global service spanning 50 countries. The premium chauffeur service has offset carbon emissions of all rides worldwide since 2017 – a first for the sector.
Havn provides all-electric urban transport with no compromise on comfort and style – an offer unique to London. Each journey can be tailored to the preferences of the passenger with options such as playlist, temperature and chauffeur interaction all customisable within the Havn app.
Havn was launched September 2019 by InMotion, Jaguar Land Rover’s venture capital and mobility services arm, which invests in innovative new products and services for an autonomous, electrified, connected and shared mobility future.
Blacklane and Havn ensure COVID-19 secure health checks to protect chauffeurs and customers. Chauffeurs take their temperatures daily, wear masks, circulate fresh air between trips and disinfect vehicles before and after every journey. Passengers are offered complimentary hand sanitiser and a mask.
