Earlier today, Uber launched its new UberONE service, offering customers rides in a Tesla Model S vehicle and making Madrid the first city in the world to have a sustainable electric car-sharing service. Prices for UberONE start at 0.45 euros (~$0.47) per minute with a minimum fare of 8 euros (~$8.35).

If you’re in Madrid and are interested in testing it out, simply select UberONE (instead of UberX or any of the other options) and the app will function as it usually does, letting you follow your driver, choose your method of payment and review routes.

Thanks to a special partnership with Microsoft, each UberONE car comes equipped with a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet so customers can surf the web, check emails, play on social media or listen to music on Spotify during rides.

Not surprisingly, Uber is already experiencing heavy demand in Madrid for the new service. There’s not currently any information regarding when (or where) Uber may offer UberONE next — we’ve got our fingers crossed for NYC! — but for now, anyone in Madrid with an Uber account has access to it.

New to Uber? Sign up through this link to receive a free ride (up to $20) from TPG. Remember to sync a credit card with your Uber account that will earn you the greatest return on your ride, like the Chase Sapphire Reserve, which gives you 3x points per dollar spent on travel purchases.
