Uber Set to Buy out Tesla’s Autonomous Car Stock

We all know that the Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution is coming, be it in the form of cars, trucks or busses; we are destined to rely on these vehicle types in the very near future.
Uber, ride share taxi company has recently announced that they want to purchase every autonomous vehicle that Tesla will produce in 2020. Now for those of you that haven’t been paying attention, Tesla is currently the worlds leading EV company producing the ground breaking P85D, which can give cars such as the Mercedes SLS AMG a huge run for their money.
As we already know, Uber has a range of vehicles from luxury, suburban and even hybrids; so the jump to an all EV is a step in the right direction for taxi services and this could be something that more tansport services could adopt in the near future.
Now it’s not all about the economy and paying drivers, autonomous cars can analyse the road in front of them and adjust the suspension to suit the conditions. They are also 10x safer than a traditional human driver and even marginally quicker due to being constantly connect to other vehicles and traffic services in the area.
Would you get a ride in an autonomous vehicle when they become available? Let us know in the comments.
