Uber partners with Moove to Deploy 10,000 Electric Vehicles in London

Uber is partnering with Moove to supply an additional 10,000 electric vehicles to ride-hailing drivers in London.

Moove is an African-born startup that provides a 100 percent electric rent-to-buy model. This service allows drivers to access new, zero-emissions vehicles for a weekly fee.

The company aims to be the largest electric vehicle partner on Uber’s platform in London by providing up to 10,000 vehicles by the end of 2025.

Moove’s London launch will enable Uber to progress towards its goal of becoming an all-electric platform in the capital by 2025
Ladi Delano, Co-founder and Co-CEO at Moove, said:

“We are proud to have built a business in Africa to now be able to scale our model here in Europe, which is something that no other African fintech company has done before. This also marks a milestone of firsts for us; as we are excited to be launching with our first 100% EV fleet. We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Uber to drive our commitments towards the electrification of mobility.”

London is already the leading city in Uber’s global electrification efforts with over 6,000 electric vehicles on its platform. Moove’s London launch will now enable Uber to advance its goal of becoming all-electric in the capital by 2025.

To encourage drivers to use an electric car, Moove customers can also apply for funding from Uber’s 145 million GBP Clean Air Plan to reduce the cost of their vehicle.

Andrew Brem, general manager at Uber UK, said:

“Our aim at Uber is to become a 100% electric platform in London by 2025 and we understand that drivers need access to financing if they want to make the transition to an electric vehicle. Moove’s model will help more Uber drivers switch to pure electric faster, to reduce their running costs and help clean up London’s air. With demand from riders higher than ever, our partnership with Moove will benefit drivers and riders alike.”

Moove’s model is designed to close the finance gap associated with upfront deposits and costs for drivers.

The company also aims to erase concerns about charging infrastructure for Uber drivers by launching the Moove Charge app for ride-hailing services.

The app will enable Moove customers to locate, control, and pay for charging across over 6,600 slow, fast and rapid charge points in London.

The app provides a cost saving of approximately 12 percent and allows drivers to search for charge points by vehicle compatibility, speed and availability.
