The car requirements for Uber Black can be confusing. However, with only slight variations from city to city, there are a number of requirements that potential drivers can count on having to meet.
The first, and most obvious, requirement is that your car must be a luxury sedan or crossover with a black interior and exterior. In most cities, the interior of your car must also be leather. While this is a seemingly simple condition to meet, it can prove difficult for Uber drivers who are currently renting their vehicle. With the majority of rental cars being white (22%) and silver (20%), Uber Black car requirements can prove restrictive, or even impossible, to those hoping to rent a car that meets the service’s exacting standards.
The second Uber Black vehicle requirement common to all cities is that your car must be able to comfortably seat four passengers. Anyone who has ever rented a car knows that the availability of any given model is often a gamble. Often, you show up and pray that the model you need is in stock, cleaned and ready to go. While it’s not difficult to secure a vehicle that meets the broader standard Uber requirements, the range of Uber Black car models is more narrow and, as a result, more troublesome.
