I saw that on my way to work today, ouch.

They have a ton of EV options now, check them out if you're in the market for a new car. It helps a lot since your cost per mile drops significantly.

They showed pics of the new Leaf with 150 mile range, not bad at all. Chevy Bolt would be pretty awesome for uber too. Even plug in hybrids make a big difference...

The volt was designed to get to work, the grocery store and them home. It's is in no way a good vehicle for rideshare. The components of the vehicle were never designed to carry around the weight of 4-5 adults on a daily basis.

If the Lexus 300eh wasn't a camary with a Lexus badge I may have bought it as it's a select class vehicle.

Chevy Volt is a nice car, but I was actually referring the Chevy Bolt (100% electric with 200+ mile range). Uber had an EV user group that they hosted at the local greenhub not that long ago, there were several Bolt drivers that gave VERY positive comments on the car/experience. I haven't heard anything on the cars not being designed for 4-5 adults on a daily basis.
