You can now book a Tesla Model X SUV to and from UK airports, thanks to a new service, Driven. The 24/7 airport shuttle can be booked as an exclusive ride, or can be shared to cut costs.
As soon as you’ve booked your flight, you can book your shuttle ride and the type of service: Exclusive Shuttle, Premium Shared Shuttle, or Shared Shuttle. The cost depends on the time of day and whether you prefer to share your ride or not, but the company is adamant that it’s cheaper than most airport transfers. A ride to the airport could be just £9 per person for a 40-minute trip, where as the Heathrow Express train in London could cost something like £15, and doesn’t run 24/7.
“We’re on a mission to change the way people travel to and from airports, by delivering journeys that are sustainable, affordable and enjoyable,” said Mark Long, CEO at Driven.
Plus, you get to take a ride in the Tesla Model X. Talk about luxury vibes. Just send Driven your flight details and they’ll adjust your shuttle time according to any flight delays. So sit back, relax, and let the driver (a full-time employee of the company who has undergone extensive background checks, etc.) get you there on time.
Will this luxury emission-free shuttle ride be enough to offset the flight you’re embarking on? Definitely not. Will it be comfortable, reliable and fun? There’s only one way to find out.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
