One Polish hotel in Poznan has taken that idea in a new direction. Well, this has probably been done before, but I was surprised to realize when Jacek Fior passed the news on to me that I haven’t seen such an implementation anywhere else before.

The service is an in-house Tesla Model X shuttle/chauffeur service. This is how a Facebook post about the new service introduced the Model X (translation to English by robots and then improved by me):


We just launched a prestigious Tesla Model X Hotel Shuttle option 🚘

This 6 seat, fully electric supercar will be a pleasant alternative for our guests 🔝 🚕

City Park Hotel & residence is one of the first hotels in the world to boast about this type of innovation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Our Concierge Department will be happy to book a transfer for you: + 48 606 770 328 🎩 ☎️


Awesome idea. Great choice of vehicle, design, number of seats. Whether it pays itself off or not, it helps the world, so here’s a thanks to whoever made the decision on this one.

As you may have supposed, Jacek sent this over to me in part because we’ve co-founded Tesla shuttle and electric carsharing startups. If in-house electric shuttle/chauffeur services like this became common at luxury hotels, they’d present a potential challenge for our businesses.

However, I think such moves will remain niche. It makes more sense (imho) to partner with a company focused on providing such services than to bring the offer in house. The hotel doesn’t even have to put up any money — just supply an exclusive relationship, dedicated parking space, and marketing opportunities. An open door and a little co-branding can go a long way.

That said, due to the ease and lower cost of outsourcing such services, City Park Hotel & Residence should have no problem standing out with this addition to the customer experience. Also, the owners can presumably drive the supersplendulous Model X around for their own needs as they wish. 🙂

Know of any other hotels or resorts offering such a service? Maybe Mar-a-Lago, with all that extra cash it’s been raking in from doubled membership fees and US taxpayer funding?
