  • Hertz will offer Tesla cars to Uber drivers on a weekly basis for $334 a week, including insurance, but expects rates to drop to $299 a week in the near future.

Following a record order for Tesla vehicles from the rental giant Hertz, Uber has revealed a plan with Hertz to make 50,000 Teslas available to Uber drivers. The companies have partnered on vehicle availability before, but the new plans concern a vehicle order Tesla is expected to deliver through the end of 2022, supplying the rental company with Model 3 sedans.

How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Car?

  How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Car? When shoppers are considering the purchase or lease of an electric vehicle (EV), one of the first questions they ask is, "how much does it cost to charge?" While it's easy to answer that question for a gas-powered car by looking at its fuel economy and your gas station receipt, it gets a bit more complicated for an electric car. If you're charging from a home charging station, the cost of charging an electric vehicle is based on the vehicle'sIf you're charging from a home charging station, the cost of charging an electric vehicle is based on the vehicle's energy efficiency and the cost of electricity, which can vary greatly depending on where you're charging.

The first Model 3 sedans are expected to become available to renters on November 1 of this year, and that's when Uber says drivers will be able to rent Model 3s through Hertz locations in Washington, DC, San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, ahead of a wider rollout in the US in the weeks that will follow.

"Today, it goes electric: Hertz will make up to 50,000 fully electric Teslas available for drivers to rent by 2023, exclusively for drivers using the Uber network in the US. This is the largest expansion of electric vehicles (EVs) on a mobility platform in North America and one of the largest globally, marking another step towards Uber's zero-emissions goal."

The costs to Uber drivers to rent Tesla through Hertz, however, are a little sobering. Uber says it will cost its non-employee independent contractors $334 a week to rent a Model 3, but this cost is expected to later fall to $299 a week once the program picks up speed. This will include maintenance and insurance, but not charging. Early on, Hertz will open up this program to drivers with at least a 4.7-star rating, and those who've completed 150 trips so far.

About 14 months ago, Electroautobauer Tesla has formulated serious accusations against the US competitor Rivian and sued it.

That works out to $1336 for four weeks, at least before the $299 weekly pricing will kick in, which will get that down to $1196 for a period of just under a month, on paper.

It's not clear just to whom this deal will make financial sense, assuming minimizing running costs is a goal, as Uber drivers will be paying over $1300 a month for a car and insurance under this program in order to make money for themselves. Needless to say, we suspect there is a vast universe of vehicles that could be cheaper to own or lease for Uber drivers that offer lower lease or ownership costs, and some of them could be used EVs. It might certainly help if drivers will be operating close by to a Tesla Supercharger station, as juicing up a Model 3 each night at a Level 2 charger suggests some other, significant expenditures to drivers, such as having a garage or nightly access to a Level 2 EV charger to begin with.

Hertz Buying 100,000 Teslas in $4.2 Billion Deal, Making EVs 20 Percent of Its Fleet

  Hertz Buying 100,000 Teslas in $4.2 Billion Deal, Making EVs 20 Percent of Its Fleet Rental-car giant to start rolling out Tesla Model 3s early next month and will provide customers free charging at Tesla stations through February 2022. Rental giant Hertz announced this morning that it is ordering 100,000 Tesla Model 3 EVs, giving it "the largest EV rental fleet in North America" and making EVs 20 percent of the Hertz fleet.Hertz promised that customers will start to find Tesla Model 3 cars at some locations in the U.S. and Europe starting in early November. The full 100,000-car order is expected to be fulfilled by the end of 2022.

Perhaps cognizant of the heady monthly costs, Uber could be hinting that the goals of this deal may not be entirely aimed at permitting Uber drivers to make more money using a brand-new rented EV versus another leased or owned car.

"While this partnership is a step forward to advance electrification on the Uber platform, it’s important to note that owning an electric vehicle is still too often more expensive than a traditional gas-powered vehicle," the company notes. "This is a critical challenge that we all must continue tackling together with government leaders through smart policy to bring the cost of EV ownership in line with or below gas-powered cars."
