Wheely, an on-demand online service for ordering luxury and executive rides, was forced to pull out of the capital's private transport market five years ago after launching as an Uber-style Prius operator.

Now the app, founded by 29-year-old Anton Chirkunov, is exclusively targeting the chauffeur market, with a fleet of executive (Mercedes E-class) and luxury (S-class) driver-owned cars.
