Tesla has been in the news a lot lately with the launch of its controversial Cybertruck and, love it or hate it, Tesla is an automotive brand that’s likely here to stay. Earlier this year, we interviewed YouTuber Andy Slye about driving for Uber and Lyft with his Model 3, but RSG’s auto expert Gabe Ets-Hokin wanted to get a first-hand perspective, so he borrowed a Model 3 to put in some Uber and Lyft miles. What’s it like driving a Tesla with Uber? Gabe covers it all below!
I’ve been a fan of electric vehicles for over a decade, when I tested my first electric motorcycle. From that day, I’ve wanted an electric vehicle (EV) of my own, and was thrilled when I had a chance to purchase a Chevrolet Bolt. I even wrote an article on the best EVs for Uber and Lyft drivers!
But when Tesla started selling its Model 3 for about the same price as my Bolt, I wanted to jam shrimp forks in my eyes in frustration. If only I had waited a year! Luckily, my mother bought a Model 3, so when Harry asked me to write about the Model 3, I found myself asking my mom if I could borrow her car on a Saturday night – for the first time in over 30 years. Here’s what happened.
