Wheely, a London, UK-based luxury ride hailing startup, raised $15m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Concentric with participation from Oleg Tscheltzoff, Misha Sokolov and others.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand its reach, starting with Paris in the next summer.
Founded in 2010 by Anton Chirkunov, Wheely provides a high-end ride-hailing service, allowing passengers to book a chauffeur-driven car both on-demand and in advance. The company works with around 3,000 private chauffeurs internationally driving luxury cars (Mercedes-Benz E-Class cars, Mercedes-Benz S-Class cars and Mercedes-Benz V-Class vehicles).
The app allows passengers to request comfortable journeys in class-leading cars both on-demand and in advance. All journeys can be tailored to their tastes with choice of route, cabin temperature and music, including streaming directly from their smartphone.
Wheely also offers fixed-fare airport transfers, including complimentary Meet & Greet with a chauffeur waiting in Arrivals.
It is currently available in London, Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities in Russia.
