Moove Announces EV Charging App for Uber Drivers in London

Moove has partnered with PAUA to develop an end-to-end electric vehicle (EV) charging network for ride-hailing drivers in London.

Earlier this year, Moove announced a partnership with Uber to supply 10,000 EVs to ride-hailing drivers in London. By working with PAUA to launch Moove Charge, the company now hopes to remove a major barrier to transitioning to these EVs.

Together, Moove and Paua have created the Moove Charge app, an end-to-end EV charging network app specifically designed for ride-hailing drivers
Charlotte Bailey, Head of Europe at Moove, said:

“Moove is an impact-led company committed to the electrification of mobility. Our mission is to empower mobility entrepreneurs on ride-sharing, e-logistics and last-mile delivery platforms to be more productive and successful, and to achieve financial security. PAUA has been a fantastic partner in our mission to support our customers in their transition to EVs.”

To help simplify an EV driver’s experience, the Moove Charge app will provide access to the largest network of 6,600 slow, fast and ultrafast EV charge points across London.

The app will allow users to locate available charge points, view their compatibility with their vehicle, and filter by charge speed. Drivers will also be able to start and stop charging and pay for the charge through the app.

By using this system rather than paying multiple charge point operators (CPOs), Moove estimates that drivers could save up to 340 GBP per year, or approximately 12 percent of average annual EV charging costs.

Indeed, although London has a fast-growing network of EV charge points, they are operated by a fragmented market of CPOs and suppliers, which can require drivers to purchase multiple subscriptions.

In addition, as charging requires forward planning to locate charge points and account for charge time, this can negatively impact the user’s experience and a ride-hailing driver’s earning capacity.

The Moove Charge app has thus been designed to overcome these challenges and help drivers seamlessly transition to operating an EV.
