Uber to Incorporate 50,000 Tesla Vehicles as Part of its Fleet

Uber aims to have only EVs working for it by 2030. This is an important move in that direction

  • Hertz recently placed an order for 100,000 Tesla vehicles.

  • Uber brokered a deal with Hertz to allow drivers to rent the EVs.

It’s difficult for us to imagine a better promotional series of announcements for any automaker. As the auto industry ramps up EV production and marketing, Tesla has only to keep doing what it’s been doing for years. After Hertz, Uber will now increase its fleet with more Tesla EVs.

Hertz Boosted Tesla Stock Over $1,000 Billion

Earlier this week, Hertz car rentals revealed that they’ve placed an order with Tesla for 100,000 vehicles to be delivered in 2022. While this deal was being worked out, Uber was also in talks with Hertz to enable its driver access to 50,000 Tesla from the rental company’s fleet.

This deal could see Hertz’s order could increase to 150,000 units or even double to 200,000 units from Tesla over the next few years.

The first Tesla vehicles will be available to Uber drivers in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Washington, DC, according to Business Insider. The arrangement goes live on November 1st.

Not all 50,000 Teslas will be on the road immediately. Uber’s deal with Hertz aims to have all of them working by 2023, or a short while after Tesla delivers the vehicles.
