SPARK! Partnering to electrify in Europe
Our SPARK! report outlines Uber’s commitment to electrifying ride-hailing in Europe and how we hope to partner with industry and policymakers to help drivers move to fully electric vehicles (EVs). The report looks at how best to address the financial, logistical, and charging barriers to electrification, particularly in underserved urban communities.
Read more about Uber’s plans, and our recommendations for policies to facilitate the shift to EVs among ride-hail drivers and the wider public.
“People across Europe are sick of pollution and congestion. Shared electric mobility is key to solving these problems. Uber's commitment to rapidly electrify its fleet in major European cities is good news. We will be monitoring Uber's progress to clean up their operations, but we'll also need Europe's major cities to show leadership.”
William Todts, Executive Director, Transport & Environment (T&E)
“As the largest mobility platform in Europe, we have an important role to play in tackling climate change and supporting a green recovery. With our responsibilities to drivers, riders, and cities in mind, today we have made a series of ambitious commitments to help advance the electrification of our platform across Europe. As we set out our road map to become a zero-emission mobility platform by 2040, Europe will lead the way by delivering impactful changes in the next 5 years.”
