After the Uber fee — which can range from 20% to 28% depending on the city and when the driver signed up — Zhang calculates that he has collected 76 cents per mile. This is cut down to 70 cents when factoring in his Tesla’s cost of six cents per mile to drive. This may not be enough of a profit to keep driving for the service, Zhang said, and he’s pausing his driving while deciding whether to keep going. “I cannot spend money and my time [when] I’m not making a return,” Zhang said.
