Arrival and Uber ride-hailing electric car concept

There are over 30 million estimated drivers across the ride-hailing sector, all hoping to improve air quality and reduce emissions. Uber has already taken steps to commit to becoming a purely electric mobility company in London by 2025.

Joining forces, Arrival and Uber will be releasing a ride-hailing electric car that can hold three passengers. Let’s take a look at the core features of this upcoming release.

The future of electric cars

It’s anything but high-tech, although has a focus on comfort and practicality

The first thing you think of with an electric car is high-tech components. However, the Arrival Car will boast a minimalist design with a modest-sized screen and a smartphone holster on the steering wheel. There’s also a cup holder and a door bin to keep your essentials neat and organized when you’re in the car. But why so simple? Arrival and Uber want to develop a car that’s functional and affordable. And, let’s face it, not everyone needs automatically heated seats for a daily commute. However, the companies plan to reveal the car’s finalized interior by the end of the year as ideas are still a work-in-progress.

But that doesn’t mean that this electric car is basic. It’ll include physical controls on the steering wheel and a touchscreen panel in the center for navigation assistance. In fact, this screen will display your route, trip information, and more.

The goal is to make hundreds of small improvements, changes, and tweaks to the design that perhaps haven’t been applied before”.

Tom Elvidge, Arrival’s senior vice president of mobility

Additionally, the Arrival Car will prioritize comfort and safety while also offering a premium experience. Being able to handle around 50,000 km a year (compared to a typical vehicle that offers 12,000 km annually), this electric car will reflect professional drivers’ and their passengers’ needs. Plus, with affordability as one of its main focuses, this car will help to encourage passengers to switch to an electric alternative.

What are your thoughts on this ride-hailing electric car? And what are some ways that you’re doing your part to cut down on fuel emissions? Let us know in the comments.
