    Chevy Bolt for $99/mo + 10¢/mile - good deal?

    Hi folks - It's pretty well understood that EVs save money on gas and maintenance, but the upfront cost of the car + a home charger keeps many from getting one for rideshare duties. Would you be interested in leasing a Chevy Bolt for $99/mo + 10¢/mile for 36 months? Includes maintenance...

    Tesla Model 3 on Uber

    i thought Tesla made it clear that the Model3 was not to be used on Uber/Lyft platforms. And yet, I saw a red Model3 on the 401 today with Uber sticker in back window. Does Uber allow Tesla Model 3 on the platform?
