Uber continues to make its car rides cleaner. The platform will ban gasoline engine cars for less than ten years.
Earlier this year, Uber banned drivers with diesel vehicles from registering on the platform. The goal was to completely eliminate the presence of diesel by 2024.
The passenger transport giant announced new measures this week, this time tougher. Indeed, combustion engine cars will be completely banned from the platform in 2030.
It is the CEO of the company, Dara Khosrowshahi, who presented this news. “If we do our job well, we will be completely electrified”, he announced. Khosrowshahi’s goal is to make Uber a ‘zero emissions’ platform in eight years in the US, Canada and Europe.
Currently, the number of Uber electric cars will be around 25,000, for one million drivers. But more and more customers have the option to choose an electric car when booking a trip.
In addition, Uber will invest $800 million to double the number of electric cars next year. Drivers with an electric vehicle receive an extra dollar per trip and a discount on payments. A partnership with Hertz also allows them to rent a Tesla Model 3 for $344 per week.
