Just in case you didn't know, Uber is bigger than Tesla financially and the founder has eveb bigger and bolder dreams than Elon. Their eventual goal is to end car ownership and transfer the world into a big ride sharing program. The goal is noble considering the sustainability of keeping cars driving on the road almost 24/7. Most cars are used like what? 5% of the time? Car production is a resource eating industry, tons of water, petroleum products, and non-renewable metals.
So, Uber has plans to buy hundreds of thousands of fully autonomous cars as soon as they are affordable and legal. That is the first step, eventually Ubering will be cheaper than owning a vehicle.
The question is, ignoring the looks and driving dynamics which are mostly irrelevant for cab customers, is the Chevy Bolt a better uber car than the Tesla Model 3? Why would Uber choose one over the other? Let me know what you think.
