TNC drivers are especially well-positioned to benefit from these lower operating costs, since they drive more miles than the average driver. The yearly savings in fuel and maintenance for EVs will more than offset the higher up-front cost. The widespread electrification of TNC vehicles has the potential to improve driver economics and substantially mitigate carbon emissions in American cities, while exposing large numbers of riders to the benefits of electric vehicles.
