Uber Riders in Dubai Can Now Select Electric-powered Tesla

Tuesday, 10 October 2017 05:55 AM EDT

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Uber is offering its customers the option to ride in one of 50 new Tesla electric-powered vehicles in Dubai, where large gas-guzzling sedans and luxury sports cars dominate the emirate's six-lane highways.

The U.S.-based ride-hailing app launched the UberONE option on Tuesday in partnership with Dubai Taxi Corporation, which added 50 Tesla Model X and Model S to its fleet last month. The vehicles, which Uber riders can select for a slightly higher fare, are equipped with self-driving components.

Dubai's transport authority is aiming to add another 150 Tesla vehicles to its fleet in 2018 and 2019.

Uber's General Manager in the United Arab Emirates, Chris Free, says the partnership is line with the company's drive to provide riders with "new and progressive experiences."
