The finish car will have to withstand the high demands of an Uber driver – passenger cars travel up to 50,000 kilometers (31,070 miles) per year, compared to 12,000 km for the average car.

The companies said the arrival car will prioritize “driver comfort, safety and convenience, while ensuring passengers a premium experience.”
