Uber is proud to announce its efforts to lead the switch to electric vehicles (EVs) in India as it makes excellent progress on its sustainability journey. Beginning in June 2023, passengers can order all-electric, zero-emission vehicles using the Uber Green app in three major cities: Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Delhi. India will soon have access to Uber Green, a revolutionary on-demand EV service that will revolutionize sustainable mobility with only a few taps.
Expanding Partnerships to Sustain EV Momentum
Fleet Partner Expansion
Uber is growing its network of fleet partners to encourage EV development on its platform. Deploying 25,000 electric cars throughout the top seven cities will be made possible by partnerships with Lithium Urban Technologies, Everest Fleet Private Limited, and Moove—a worldwide fleet partner. This project expands upon Uber’s established Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) earlier this year for EV delivery with Tata Motors.
EV Two-Wheeler Partnership
Uber is collaborating with Zypp Electric, a tech-enabled EV-as-a-service firm, to promote sustainable mobility in the quickly expanding UberMoto category. Over 1,000 electric two-wheelers are now in use in Delhi, and 10,000 will be deployed by 2024.
Uber and the Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) have inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU), making low-interest loans of Rs 1,000 crores available to fleet partners. This funding is intended to help fleet partners buy EVs and CNG cars.
EV Charging Infrastructure
Through a collaboration with JioBP, Uber will extend the terms of its global mobility deal with BP Pulse to India. Through this partnership, Uber’s EVs will have access to fast-charging infrastructure. Uber and GMR Green are also collaborating to improve the Uber EV charging network, giving drivers access to high-speed charging stations.
Uber’s Commitment to India’s Sustainable Transition
India has become a top market for Uber due to its size and excitement for electrification. By 2040, the business intends to electrify each ride on its network. Uber is implementing this promise through its sector-leading partnerships, accelerating drivers’ switch to electric vehicles, and enabling a long-term transformation of India’s ride-sharing market.
Impressive Milestones and Approvals
Tripling the Number of Electric Vehicles
By 2022, Uber will have more electric vehicles available on its network, providing rides to 31 million users. This accomplishment demonstrates Uber’s commitment to eco-friendly transportation.
Science-Based Emissions Reduction Targets
The Science Based Targets Initiative has accepted Uber’s short- and long-term science-based emissions reduction goals. Uber, among the initial 30 US companies granted permission, commits to addressing climate change through tangible and measurable actions.
Uber now provides Uber Green in Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru, offering practical and eco-friendly transportation with all-electric cars. It is aggressively encouraging the use of electric vehicles in India by enhancing partnerships, providing finance alternatives, and enhancing the infrastructure for charging. Uber is leading the sustainable transformation of India’s ride-sharing market with its ambitious aims and teamwork, tying in with the nation’s ardent desire for electrification.
