MGM Resorts International and World CNG have introduced the nation’s first compressed natural gas Cadillac XTS limousines. “These limousines set a new standard for sustainability, safety, and technology for livery fleets, and are the product of MGM Resorts International’s passion for sustainability and environmental stewardship,” said Garret Alpers, President and CEO of World CNG.
The 22-foot-long luxury Cadillac XTS limousines are the third generation of CNG-powered vehicles in the MGM Resorts fleet. They are 70 inches longer than traditional limos, giving them the designation of “stretch” limos. They are the first XTS limousines certified by Cadillac and the first-ever Cadillac XTS vehicles to be converted to CNG. The new limousines produce only one-ninth of the emissions when compared to their predecessors, the discontinued gasoline-powered Lincoln Town Car limousines.
“In addition to providing the highest standards in guest service, it’s essential that we continuously look to challenge the status quo in environmental sustainability,” said Paul Berry, Vice President of Hotel Operations for ARIA Resort & Casino, the first resort in the company to introduce the luxury vehicle to its fleet. MGM Resorts currently has 31 CNG Cadillac XTS limousines servicing guests at ARIA, Bellagio Resort & Casino, MGM Grand Las Vegas and Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
The new Cadillac XTS limousines have been specifically converted to enhance the guest experience and provide superior comfort while maintaining a responsibility to the environment. Each luxury vehicle includes custom leather interior. Additionally, each element – from door seals to state-of-the-art systems – has been hand-selected to create the ultimate guest experience.
