Can I drive a Tesla 3 as an Uber?
The Guru Take
yes, you can. There are more than you think out there.
Yes, Tesla 3 would qualify for an UberX, UberBlack, and potentially Uber Tesla if it is being offered in your city. With the price starting at $35,000~$50,000 (source) and the cost of operation (i.e. electricity costs) claimed at $0.03~$0.06 a mile (source), it seems like it could be a great option. Unfortunately, there hasn't been enough prior examples with Telsa 3s for us to know if it is a good choice for operating an Uber business.
For Tesla Model X, the model that has existed for a few years, there are prior examples. Paul English, a co-founder of Kayak, is known to drive his in his free time around Boston streets.
Can driving a $80,000~$120,000 car as an Uber be lucrative? Perhaps if it's for UberBlack, potentially.
No long shifts however: You also do need to keep in mind that Teslas can only travel about 220 miles on a single charge. This means that your shift can only be 4 to 8 hours, depending on how much driving actually occurs and how fast you are going. Then, once you've exhausted your charge, it can take up to 8~12 hours to fully charge at 220V. So you may not be working long hours!
