Uber partners with Hertz to offer 50,000 Tesla rentals to US ride-hail drivers
Uber Technologies Inc on Wednesday said it is launching a new partnership with rental car company Hertz to offer 50,000 Tesla Inc vehicles as a rental option to its ride-hail drivers by 2023.
Uber drivers can rent a Tesla through Hertz starting on November 1 in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Washington DC, with the program later this year expanding to cities nationwide, the ride-hail company said in a blog post.
The Tesla rentals, consisting mostly of the electric vehicle company’s Model 3 sedan, will be available exclusively to Uber drivers and start out at $334 a week, including insurance and maintenance. Uber said the rental cost would drop to $299 per week or lower as the program expands in the coming year.
Uber’s announcement comes just days after Hertz on Monday said it would order 100,000 Tesla vehicles by the end of 2022. News of the biggest-ever Tesla order led to a share price rally and saw the company’s market value surpass $1 trillion.
Wednesday’s deal represents Uber’s most significant step so far in expanding the use of EVs on its platform. The company has vowed to operate only electric vehicles on its U.S., Canadian and European platform by 2030, and worldwide by 2040.
Currency Exchange Rates Surge As Traders See RBI Rolling Back Monetary Stimulus
Swap rates are rising in India in a sign that traders expect the central bank to roll back monetary stimulus quicker than expected despite its reassurances.
The five-year onshore overnight indexed swap, a tool to trade rate expectations, has advanced 31 basis points in October to 5.64%. It’s poised for the biggest monthly gain since February when the government said the economy had exited a recession before a Delta variant outbreak.
Traders globally are betting that central banks will have to hike rates faster than projected as pandemic-era inflation become entrenched. While price pressures in India eased in the past few months, economists expect it to rise again largely due to the surge in global energy prices, which could influence the Reserve Bank of India’s policy decision.
“The swap market is telling us that the RBI may be falling behind the curve,” said Vijay Kumar Sharma, senior executive vice president at PNB Gilts Ltd. “The view is inflation will be higher and there will be steep rate hikes.”
