Uber Car Requirements: 115 Uber XL Cars Analyzed

 

Uber Car Requirements - UberXLThanks for reading! In response to a lot of emails we get, we wrote this blog post, and created the table below this post listing our analysis of 115 cars that we examined for the Uber XL service. If you would prefer just to look at the list of Uber XL cars we analyzed: go here

As a potential Uber XL Driver or Entrepreneur, you probably know that you can make money on the platform, but you also know that keeping your costs low can make all the difference between making a good profit and making very little money after costs. The largest cost you are in direct control of that impacts profits/ROI (return on investment) is the car you use: Whether you are an Uber Driver or an Entrepreneur managing a fleet of drivers, the car you select is of paramount importance.

 

Uber Car Requirements: What Uber XL Car Should I Buy?

Below we list the cars we believe are the best for Uber XL. We also explain the reasons for our decisions.

The two cars our team liked, in decreasing order of preference are:

Toyota Sienna, 2014 Model

  • MSRP – $22,222
  • Estimated depreciation per year – 15%
  • MPG – 21 MPG
  • Estimated cost of Gas per year – $5,333 (at $2.8 per Gallon)
  • Typical Mileage – 28,426 Miles
  • KBB (Kelly Blue Book) rating –7.9/10

Honda Odyssey, 2014 Model

  • MSRP – $24,135
  • Estimated depreciation per year – 10%
  • MPG – 22 Miles per gallon
  • Estimated cost of Gas per year – $5,091 (at $2.8 per Gallon)
  • Typical Mileage – 28,426 Miles
  • KBB (Kelly Blue Book) rating – 9.1/10

Note -The Loaded Cost  =[Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) + Estimated Gas Cost for a year  + Estimated depreciation after 1 year]

 

Become an Uber Driver

We gave the Toyota Sienna 2014 high marks because we believe it is one of the cheaper large vehicles to own over a one year period (assuming you sell the car after one year). We also believe your maintenance costs should be very low for the Toyota Sienna 2014, if you buy it and drive it full time for a period of one year. After one year, you should look into selling your car, because the average full time driver (working 40 hours a week) puts in about 40,000 miles or more per year. And your maintenance costs will start to increase after 65k miles.

The Honda Odyssey, 2014 was also a good pick for Uber XL because of similar reasons as the Toyota Sienna, 2014; however its MSRP was about $2,000 more than the Toyota Sienna. This was a close one to call, but we prefer Toyotas as a rule of thumb. The Honda Odyssey has a 9.1/10 KBB (Kelly Blue Book) rating, so if you choose this over the Toyota Sienna 2014, you are making a great decision as well!

    1. After you’ve finished your application online, you should be able to start driving within a week. In rare cases the background check can take up to two weeks. Once you’re activated (Uber will send you an e-mail), you are good to go!

    1. For UberXL, I would say Toyota Highlander or Toyota Sienna, they are fuel efficient vehicles. For UberSELECT, i would suggest Tesla – Model S. It is economical, saving you alot on gas. Hyundai – Genesis, Equus and Volvo – S60, S80 are also fuel efficient brands

      Kunle

  1. What are the cars that can do:

    1. Uber Xl and Select?
