Envoy America announced that it will launch its all-electric, all-employee service on September 5, 2023, in six cities across Virginia, Texas, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania.
Envoy America's fleet of Model 3 Teslas will be owned and maintained by the company, with Companion Drivers brought on as employees rather than independent contractors.
Preparing to Launch the Service
Since Envoy America first announced plans to expand into all-electric, all-employee companionship and transportation service, the company said numerous corporate clients have joined the waitlist to become clients, and more than 1,000 Companion Drivers have applied to work for Envoy America.
Envoy America will start with 60 Companion Drivers and 10 fleet and operations employees, with guaranteed wages and access to Fortune 100-level benefits.
"The initial response from our corporate clients has been overwhelming, and we can't wait to start serving their members and patients who care as much about the nation's future as we do," said K. C. Kanaan, Envoy America CEO/co-founder. "With our all-electric fleet of sedans, we are investing in a zero-carbon transportation future. We would like to thank Access2Care, our corporate launch partner, and the team at Union Leasing for working with us to get the nation's first all-electric, all-employee service driven fleet on the road."
