Uber has partnered with numerous electric vehicle (EV) makers to accelerate the transition towards sustainable mobility. The ride-hailing giant has partnered with automakers such as Ford, Daimler, Nissan, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Hyundai Motor Group, and BMW to promote the use of electric vehicles on its platform.
In addition to these partnerships, Uber has also launched its own EV program called ‘EV Champions Initiative’ which is aimed at bringing together local governments, automakers, service providers and ride-hailing companies. This program will focus on providing incentives and support EV uptake.
Uber also announced the launch of its ‘clean air program’ which aims to achieve zero emissions from its ridesharing platform by 2030. As part of this initiative, Uber is offering its riders discounts if they opt for electric vehicles. It is also providing charging infrastructure for its drivers.
Lastly, Uber has also begun piloting electric scooters and bike-sharing initiatives in some markets to further reduce emissions from its platform. This is expected to bring about positive change in the environment and help create more sustainable cities.
