In general, limousine companies also offer a variety of models – from new, modern ones to vintage and older models.
But while the limousine today is known on arguably every part of the world, its history and origins is not common knowledge.
The limousine, whose general definition is a stretched-out luxury car that is driven by a chauffeur, is strikingly similar to the hoods worn by people in the French Limousine region. Of course, this is where the name “limousine” came from in the first place.
Actually, the present limousines originated from large sedans that have been stretched out. In these “limousines,” you can see a sliding panel or window between the driver side and passenger side to give privacy to the passenger. These old limousines have two seat rows and more room for rear passengers. The early limousine models have rear seats placed for passengers to face the driver side and another set of seats right behind the driver which, on the other hand, face the rear. This seating placement conveniently allows face-to-face conversations and at the same time, gives enough space for passengers.
Also, if there are only a few passengers, the seat behind the driver can actually be folded up for the limo to provide more space for the passengers.
