Uber said Tuesday that all vehicles on its global private transportation platform will be electric by 2040, and promised to contribute $ 800 million through 2025 to help drivers switch to battery-powered vehicles, including discounts for purchased vehicles or leased from partner automakers.

Uber, which in early February said it had 5 million drivers worldwide, said it has formed partnerships with General Motors and the Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi alliance.

In addition to vehicle discounts, Uber said the $ 800 million includes recharge discounts and a fee surcharge for electric and hybrid vehicles, the cost of which would be partially offset by a Small additional fee charged to clients requesting a “green trip”.

Uber said that the vehicles on its travel platform in the United States, Canada and Europe will be zero-emissions by 2030, taking advantage of regulatory support and advanced infrastructure in those regions.

The agreements with GM and the Renault alliance focus on the United States, Canada and Europe. Uber said it was discussing partnerships with other automakers.

Uber’s plan follows years of criticism from environmental groups and city officials over pollution and congestion caused by hail vehicles and calls for the electrification of the fleet.
