Uber Pledges to Go All-Electric, but It Doesn’t Own the Cars
The ride-hail company joined rival Lyft with a “green” pledge. It's counting on incentives to encourage drivers to switch to battery power.
UBER ON TUESDAY pledged to convert its fleet in US, Canadian, and European cities to fully electric by 2030. By the end of the following decade, Uber says, all of its rides will be aboard electric vehicles, either cars, bikes, or scooters. The pledge follows a similar one from rival Lyft, which said in June that all of its rides would be in electric vehicles by 2030.
