Brooklyn’s Revel launches Tesla rideshares
First electric 'superhub' for charging vehicles set in Brooklyn
Electric mobility company Revel, founded in Brooklyn in 2018, announced this week that it is launching an all-electric, all-employee rideshare service in New York City.
While the service will launch in late May in Manhattan, with a fleet of 50 blue Teslas available for pickups and dropoffs below 42nd Street, the company is expected to expand its service area within the next year to other areas of the city.
Revel’s rideshare service will also help the company accelerate the buildout of its fast-charging Superhub network in New York City.
The first Superhub, slated to “go live” in June, will be located at the historic former Pfizer Building in Williamsburg and will have 30 stations capable of delivering 100 miles of charge to vehicles in about 20 minutes, the company announced earlier this year. The chargers will be open to the public on a 24/7 basis and accessible to owners of any electric vehicle brand.
