As you may be aware there is a carbon fee which has been added by Uber to each customers fee. This will add a ‘clean air fee’ of 15p per mile which will be included on every trip booked through the Uber app in London all of this money will go towards helping drivers to upgrade into an electric vehicle, such as a Toyota, as well as other clean air initiatives which will be decided on in the future. The average trip in London shadows that the charge will be around 45p.
Uber has also pledged to help support every driver who uses their app to get assistance to move into an electric car. The amount of money that drivers will receive to help them purchasing an electric vehicle will depend on the amount of miles they have driven on the app.
A driver using the app for an average of 40 hours per week can expect about £3,000 of help towards an electric vehicle in two years’ time and £4,500 in three years.
Uber is expecting to raise more than £200m to help drivers moving over to electric vehicles over the next few years. Uber is moving ahead with their aim to get a lot of electric cars on their app. They want all cars to be electric by 2025. The expectation from Uber is that the first 20,000 drivers upgrading to electric vehicles by the end of 2021.
