The launch of UberONE will initially see 50 brand new premium Tesla cars added to the Uber app, giving riders across Dubai the chance to request the fully-electric, smart and sustainable transport option at the touch of a button.
Chris Free, General Manager for Uber UAE, said: “At Uber we are constantly innovating our offering and looking for ways to provide new and progressive experiences at the push of a button. We are tremendously excited to be the exclusive ride-hailing partner for this fleet of premium electric vehicles in Dubai, in partnership with Dubai Taxi Corporation, and for the clean vehicle technology to deliver our driver-partners and riders with more efficient, less-polluting mobility. We will continue to work hand in hand with Dubai Taxi Corporation to bring innovative infrastructural solutions to Dubai and grow the city’s smart mobility ecosystem.”
As well as offering driver-partners and riders a high-quality travel experience at the touch of a button, electric cars also reduce air and noise pollution in local communities, and will lower per-mile operating costs for driver-partners, compared to those for conventional cars. The introduction of the electric vehicle fleet to the Uber app will also lay the foundations for a viable, long-term technology solution to achieving a sustainable, clean ride vehicle network that smart cities of the future are striving for.
