Fleet sales like that are low profit.

Per unit, sure.  But if the quantity is large enough, there's still tons of money to be made.

Tesla rentals for Uber drivers will start at $334 a week before dropping to $299

1200 a month sounds a bit pricey for an uber driver who could just buy a farking car for significantly less than that.

Not just any car. They could easily buy a Tesla at that price.

True, a Model 3 lease is $549 a month according to the calculator.

Possibly.  Tesla sells below unit cost and makes up the difference selling regulatory credits.

I would factor those into "costs" (or negative costs in this case) in this calculation.  IE, if Tesla makes three grand per car in those credits, I would consider it's cost to make each additional car to be three grand less than it really is.

/but it definitely is a good point to point out Tesla makes a lot of money off of those

IDK, but aren't most Uber drivers renters? In my area, I don't see may landlords willing to put in 220 lines in a already parking fee without a rise in rent.

$1200 bucks? For a RENTAL? Well we know what Tesla and Hertz are getting out of the deal. But what about the drivers?

And spend how much a month on gas?

Easily $500 or more a month. Plus tires and brakes  and oil changes
Add in depreciation

$1300a month to skip all that
