Havn is a new app-based ride-hailing service that has launched in London, and promises a more upscale experience than Uber, Lyft, or the city’s characteristic black cabs.

When scheduling a ride, customers are able to specify a music playlist, cabin temperature, and — most compelling of all — your preferred level of “chauffeur interaction.”
Those chauffeurs, interestingly, are all full-time employees, not gig workers.
