DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) Uber is offering its customers the option to ride in one of 50 new Tesla electric-powered vehicles in Dubai, where large gas-guzzling sedans and luxury sports cars dominate the emirate's six-lane highways. The U.S.-based ride-hailing app launched the UberONE option on Tuesday in partnership with Dubai Taxi Corporation, which added 50 Tesla Model X and Model S to its fleet last month. The vehicles, which Uber riders can select for a slightly higher fare, are equipped with self-driving components. Dubai's transport authority is aiming to add another 150 Tesla vehicles to its fleet in 2018 and 2019.
