Electric moped-sharing company Revel is discovering that “the more wheels the merrier” as the brand launches its first Tesla-powered ride-share program in NYC.
While Revel began by operating a ride-sharing service using two-wheeled electric scooters or mopeds, the company has shown a desire to expand into four-wheelers.
The first pivot earlier this year involved Revel-branded electric car charging stations.
Now the company is going full-Tesla and launching a ride-sharing service using the leading electric vehicle company’s latest crossover, the Tesla Model Y.
But this isn’t just some Tesla-based Uber service. The drivers will be fully fledged Revel employees receiving training, benefits, health care, and paid time off.
The service will begin in May, starting with 50 modified Revel-blue Tesla Model Y vehicles offering ride-sharing services in Lower Manhattan below 42nd Street. The Teslas look fairly similar to Revel’s NIU electric mopeds, albeit with twice as many wheels.
