When did we start making limousines?

    The concept of a chauffered vehicle has been around since the 1700s. In fact, the word limousine is said to come from the French province Limoge, where the trend began.

    However, the first engine-powered limousine arrived in 1902. This version was different from the modern conception of a limousine, consisting of a car and a driver sitting outside in a covered compartment. This is when the word first arose, because the compartments resembled driver hoods from Limoge.

    Stretch limousines were developed in Arkansas in 1928. They gained popularity in the 1930s, when movie stars and directors began to use them. Cadillac is largely responsible for innovating the limousine to its modern manifestation.
