Luxian is not only a play on the word Luxury, it also derives from the name of company owner and driver Raj’s hometown in Punjab ‘Laksian’ (Lak-see-aan), where he moved from in the early 1970’s to settle in London.
ABOUT LUXIAN OF LONDON CHAUFFEURS
In the late 70’s / early 1980’s, our founder Raj arrived in Britain from Punjab and founded his first chauffeur business, ‘Luxian’; a combination of the name of his hometown and the word luxury. Using his cherished brand-new Mercedes-Benz 500SEL, it was the start of a successful chauffeur enterprise that went on to chauffeur clients the likes of Barbara Windsor, Michael Palin, Jack Dee and David Frost (on his regular commutes to New York via Concorde).
‘Luxian’ came to an end so Raj could spend more time with his growing family who grew up to have the same passion for cars as he has. From this love of cars, Luxian of London chauffeur service was born with the aim to provide the finest luxury vehicles and the finest luxury chauffeur service in London and the rest of the United Kingdom.
From our Rolls-Royce Ghost to our Range Rover SVR, we take great pride in our fleet of incredibly unique motor vehicles which you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else.

What Does Chauffeur Mean?
Chauffeur [shoh-fer, shoh-fur] is “someone employed to drive a private or hired car.” Oxford Dictionary. A chauffeur takes great pride in their craft, from the love of all things automotive, to the meticulous care taken in maintaining their motor vehicle. Whether it is in a Rolls-Royce or a Mini; chauffeuring is all about making sure the passengers are comfortable, relaxed and happy.
We take pride in every detail of our business (you only have to look at our continuously evolving website and social media to see how much we care about our customers’ experience). Luxian is a business we have grown from inception to wherever it may lead us in the future, and we hope you join us for the ride as we continue to grow and expand.
