DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Ride-hailing service Uber has begun offering its customers in Dubai the option to ride in one of 50 new Tesla electric-powered vehicles, a stark contrast to the large gas-guzzling sedans and luxury sports cars that dominate the emirate’s six-lane highways. The San Francisco maker of the ride-hailing app introduced the UberOne option Tuesday in partnership with Dubai Taxi Corp., which added 50 Tesla Model X and Model S vehicles to its fleet last month. The vehicles, which Uber riders can select for a slightly higher fare, are equipped with self-driving components.

Putting more passengers in the air could free its already clogged highways and burnish the city's cutting-edge image of itself.
