Uber Looks to Become “The Electric Company”
Uber is trying to get its drivers to adopt electric vehicles instead of driving cars that burn gasoline. The ride-hailing giant announced a yearlong pilot program in which it will provide monetary subsidies to some drivers who use electric vehicles, or EVs; build features into its app that are specific to drivers who operate those vehicles; and partner with nonprofits and UC Davis researchers to identify ways Uber and policymakers can encourage and reward adoption of EVs. Looks like Uber and EVs have become new besties.
