Johannesburg, South Africa

Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff Johannesburg continues its dedication to providing exceptional guest experiences and embracing environmental responsibility with the installation of two electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for guests and the introduction of a Mercedes-Benz EQE and a Mercedes-Benz EQB SUV onto its limousine fleet.

Committed to Sustainability and Guest Convenience

For guests driving EVs, this new offering makes a stop at the Hotel a welcome opportunity to charge their vehicles while having a meeting, indulging in a decadent lunch, an elevated dinner or enjoying sundowners at the end of the day.  

The EV charging stations, provided by Grid Cars, cater to all electric vehicles currently available in South Africa. This commitment to sustainability aligns with Four Seasons global efforts to reduce the property and its guests’ environmental footprint. And while charging their cars at the Hotel, guests can now enjoy the luxury and personalized service synonymous with Four Seasons.

“We are excited to offer our guests this environmentally friendly convenience,” says Willem Du Toit, Hotel Manager at Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff. “The installation of EV charging stations reflects our dedication to providing exceptional experiences that cater to the evolving needs of today's travellers and guests that stay or dine with us, and adds to our solar powered carts that transport guests around the iconic property.”

He continues, “While EVs still constitute a small portion of the vehicles in South Africa, they are the most well represented among our guests who visit us. Being able to provide this solution, which is not stationed at a car dealership or shopping mall, ensures that we are at the forefront of our guests’ needs when they choose to visit.”

Experience Johannesburg in Style and Comfort

The addition of the Mercedes-Benz EVs to the limousine fleet meets the demands of travellers who are looking to minimize their impact on the planet and explore Johannesburg in blissful, quiet luxury.

Appointed to the highest specification, the Mercedes-Benz EQE combines luxury and cutting-edge electric performance and boasts a spacious interior crafted from sustainable materials, satisfying guest needs, and seamlessly blending into the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg with effortless, silent opulence.

The EV fleet is intended to supplement, but ultimately replace the current petrol and diesel-powered fleet of vehicles.

Located atop the cliffs of Johannesburg, Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff offers breathtaking views, unparalleled service, and a variety of luxurious amenities. Whether guests are exploring the vibrant city or indulging in relaxation at the Hotel's world-class spa, the new EV limousines and charging stations provide peace of mind and a seamless travel experience in and around Johannesburg.
