LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — A new partnership aims to change the rideshare game in Las Vegas by offering an electric vehicle alternative.

TeraWatt Infrastructure, a company that provides charging services for fleet vehicles in the U.S., announced a partnership with luxury electric vehicle car service Kaptyn to create EV hubs in Las Vegas, Southern California and South Florida.

A spokesperson for TeraWatt said the company intends to develop and own more than 15 megawatts of initial charging capacity at the three locations announced.

Kaptyn will have a fleet of electric cars driven by full-time employees with benefits, though traditionally, rideshare drivers are treated as independent contractors.
