Uber Comfort Electric

Uber Comfort Electric is a new rideshare option for riders to request top-rated drivers in a premium zero-emission vehicle. It lets riders and drivers reduce emissions while riding in style.

Need a premium electric vehicle?

Drivers are welcome to purchase their own premium electric vehicle (EV). Uber recognizes that EVs are expensive and has partnered with Hertz to offer the rental of 50,000 Tesla Model 3s specifically for drivers on Uber.

The partnership in North America has already benefited tens of thousands of drivers on the Uber platform. To date, nearly 50,000 drivers have rented a Tesla through this program, completing more than 24 million fully electric trips and over 260 million electric miles.

You can learn more about the partnership here.

Better for the planet and for you

Drivers of fully electric vehicles (EVs) are eligible for Uber’s Zero Emissions incentive and can earn an extra $210 after completing 200 eligible rides in an EV every 30 days through the end of 2024.²

With an electric vehicle, drivers can also say goodbye to gas. Drivers using Uber get access to exclusive discounts on home charging options and public charging like exclusive EVgo discounts³, and others, which help to boost gas savings.⁴

¹Offer valid through 12/31/2023 at 11:59pm PT, for a limited time only. Available to drivers who request a ride to the Hertz rental location on the date specified on their reservation. Maximum discount of $40 per ride. Maximum of 1 ride per rider. To activate the voucher, click the link in your email and follow the steps to apply it to your Uber account. Select the voucher from your Wallet to apply it as payment. Discount does not apply to surcharges, government fees, tolls, or tips and cannot be combined with other offers or discounts. No cash value. Offer is non-transferable and subject to change.

²The $210 Zero Emissions incentive will be available in the U.S. only starting on April 11, 2024 on or around 10 am local time (start time may vary based on location and other factors). The last day for a driver to be eligible to participate in the incentive is January 4, 2025 at 10am PT. Incentive payments will be added to a driver’s account after completing the incentive criteria. Offer only available to eligible rideshare drivers who provide zero-emission rides and otherwise meet the incentive criteria during their 30-day incentive period. Uber Eats, Uber Connect, and other delivery trips are not eligible. Canceled rides do not count. Only battery electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles are eligible. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles are not eligible. In cases where the vehicle information provided to Uber is not sufficient for determining whether the vehicle is an EV, the vehicle will not be eligible to receive the incentive. Drivers should become eligible for the incentive within approximately 24 hours of when they take their first trip in a zero-emission vehicle, though sometimes longer. 30 day periods will be unique to each eligible driver. Drivers are eligible for the $210 Zero Emissions incentive every 30 days. Specifically, drivers who complete at least 200 rides in an EV will receive the $210 incentive; drivers who take less than 200 EV rides will not receive the incentive. Drivers can earn a maximum of $210 per 30-day period. Uber reserves the right to (1) withhold or deduct payments in the event of error, suspected fraud, illegality, or violation of driver terms or these terms, (2) change the trip requirements, incentive payouts, or other offer details at any time and without notice, and (3) disqualify a vehicle at any time that does not meet the eligibility requirements.
