Do you actually make more money driving a Tesla for Uber and Lyft? This is a new article that just came out. And what this one driver said is very interesting. Switching to a Tesla has saved them more than $1,000 a month on gas and maintenance. I want to do another video about this. I’ve done a couple of videos about driving a Tesla. And what’s interesting is it seems like out of any other vehicle, out of any other vehicle, Teslas have gotten the most hype when it comes to Uber and Lyft drivers. I think because I’ve done a video about one article where one driver said, oh, I’m making significantly more money even if you factor in the rental costs of the Tesla and everything. So it’s very interesting. So this article I thought was kind of unique looking at both sides.

So right here, you can see kind of the main highlights. Wesley Johnson started driving a rented Tesla for four months, and he’s been saving a lot of money on gas and has no plans to turn back. So he’s offered tips to Uber drivers looking to make the electric vehicle switch. So going down right here, he drives roughly about 40-ish hours a week. It seems like typically Thursday through Saturday and four hours on Sunday. So it looks like he’s just driving at peak hours. Makes sense. And the past year he’s brought in over about 50K, 50K-ish. He said the big thing though, as we all know when it comes to being a driver, is gas and vehicle maintenance. And I’m going to skip around in this article, you know, as you can imagine, but he got into the partnership with Hertz to rent a Tesla.
