Charlotte residents will soon be able to catch a ride in a Tesla, Lucid Air, Polestar, or Mustang Mach-E.
Uber’s premium electric car service has just announced plans to expand to a handful of select cities across the country, including the Queen City.
Uber Comfort Electric, which is more expensive than Uber X but not as posh as Uber Black, was first launched in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and Dubai back in May. It’s now being expanded to 8 additional cities, including Charlotte, Las Vegas, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Austin, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.
According to a press release from the company, “With more electric vehicles on the road in the US than ever before, we’re excited to introduce Comfort Electric, our newest way for you to get around town in style and be a part of the climate solution. It’s as simple as tap a button and request a ride in a premium EV like a Tesla or Polestar.”
In case you’ve never rode in a Tesla before, Uber sent out this helpful guide for entering and exiting the vehicle:
