Houston-based Nikko’s Transportation Service earned an industry milestone recently by buying the first ever Cadillac DTS-L sedan.

Nikko’s pre-bought the vehicle before it was displayed in Las Vegas at the 2008 International LCT Show on March 17-19.

“We are thrilled to have DTS-L number one,” said Nick Assolin, President and CEO of Nikko’s.  “These types of purchases strengthen our campaign for the highest customer service a traveler can find. The DTS-L will take our service to new heights and at the same time reinforce our relationship with Cadillac.” 

Nikko’s has a fleet that is made up of 90% GM vehicles.

"This extends the Cadillac Professional Vehicle portfolio into an influential segment of the luxury market,” said Kurt Ghering, marketing manager for the DTS. The DTS-L is being produced along by Cadillac Professional Vehicles and their Cadillac Master Coachbuilders (CMC). The first DTS-L was produced by Springfield, Mo.-based DaBryan, a division of Accubuilt. The vehicle features an extra six inches of legroom, power rear sunshade, vanity flip down mirrors for rear seat passengers, foot rests, directional LED reading lights and XM Radio.

“The DTS-L will become the foundation of our sedan fleet,” Assolin said. “Production of the vehicle is somewhat limited as of now, but we have orders for more and are looking forward to the new experience our clients will have with this vehicle.”

Nikko's was established in 1982 and is a premier worldwide chauffeured service that caters its services to the high end executive and corporate markets worldwide. Information: 1-866-571-5466; www.nikkoslimos.com.
