Sometimes you really want to make a good impression. Uber already offers two luxury transport options in London, UberExec and UberLux, and now the former is available in Manchester and Leeds too. Before now, these cities had access to just two Uber services: Uber X and Uber XL. Both are designed to be as affordable as possible, with Uber X offering a Toyota Prius (or similar) and Uber XL supplying minivans. UberExec, meanwhile, is a premium option that lets you hail a Mercedes E-class, or an alternative but equally stylish vehicle for your next meeting. Uber is currently available in four UK cities — London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham — but a host of others are mentioned in its online job listings, so we suspect it won’t be long before the company expands once more.
Here’s a breakdown of UberExec pricing:
|City||Base fee||Milage||Time||Minimum fare|
|Manchester||£2.00||£1.70||20p per min||£4.00|
|Leeds||£2.00||£1.60||17p per min||£4.00|
