Uber partners with financial company Moove. The company says it will bring another 10,000 electric vehicles to the streets of London and rent them out to Uber drivers for a fixed weekly fee.
Uber is said to currently have over 6,000 electric vehicles in the British capital - more than any other city where the company operates.
Back in 2017, the travel agency announced the creation of the Clean Air Fund, which aims to have all vehicles used in its own service in London be fully electric by 2025. To get closer to that goal, Uber is now partnering with Moove. The company launched a rental model in Europe to provide access to new electric vehicles for a flat weekly fee.
Moove's alternative credit check is designed to allow so-called "guilders" who were previously excluded from financial services to obtain vehicle financing. In addition, weekly payments can be reduced with funds from the Uber Clean Air Fund.
Moove Charge will also launch an e-car charging app specifically for Uber drivers, offering them access to one of the largest roaming networks in the city. However, no further details are provided in the message.
