The electric revolution is here and it’s not going to disappear, Uber announced that they started turning their fleets of vehicles into electric cars. And they promise that in the US, Canadian and European cities the process be completed by 2030. Uber also said that by 2040, their cars’ fleets will be electric-only worldwide.
Uber has started this process for the purpose to be a totally zero-emissions platform around the world. The CEO of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi, said that Uber company wants to lead the “green recovery” in a world after the coronavirus pandemic.
Uber plans to invest $800 million to help its drivers transition to electric cars this decade. The automaker, General Motors, said in a separate announcement it will offer employee pricing on a new Chevrolet Bolt EV for eligible Uber drivers. The employee pricing also works with an $8,500 national rebate Chevy currently runs for the electric car, and that’s before any state and local tax credits for purchasing an EV.
