Located in a secluded area with easy access to Kuwait’s Central Business District, airport and major attractions, Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa will provide an alternative luxury mode of transport for the hotel’s VIP guests and celebrities. The hotel will host the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid car at its main entrance; raising awareness of hybrid cars and educating motorists about reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The hotel has partnered with Porsche Centre Kuwait, Behbehani Motors Company to raise awareness of environmentally friendly transport options.
The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid is the world’s first plug-in hybrid model on the luxury class market. The 416 hp model has an electric driving range of up to 36 kilometers after which the vehicle will switch to normal fuel or the driver can recharge it. The car has an NEDC fuel consumption of just 3.1 liters per 100 km which equates to CO2 emissions of just 71 g/km – the same level as a compact car. In addition to the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid, Porsche is a market-leader in the production of plug-in hybrid cars and is the only manufacturer to offer three hybrid models. Its E-Hybrid line-up includes the Panamera S E-Hybrid, 918 Spyder and the recently launched Cayenne S E-Hybrid – the world’s first plug-in hybrid in the premium SUV segment.
“This collaboration showcases our commitment to sustainability. We are proud to support an environmentally friendly initiative and to have partnered with Porsche - a globally recognised and respected automobile brand. It’s important to protect the environment against the harmful emissions of conventional fuel-powered, combustion engine cars. Our guests will not only enjoy the comfort of Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa but can now take advantage on environment-friendly luxury transport,” said Hakan Petek, General Manager, Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel and Spa.
The Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa is actively involved in social responsibility initiatives and activities such as the Earth Hour, Breast Cancer Awareness, World Autism Day, student school projects, art competitions and beach clean-up drives.
