Uber’s India president, Prabhjeet Singh, emphasised their commitment to electric vehicles. He’s excited to launch Uber Green in Kolkata, making their eco-friendly rides available to more people. Similar to the success in other cities, this expansion shows Uber’s dedication to offering both convenience and sustainability in transportation. As they reach more Indian cities, they aim to make electric vehicle rides accessible across the country.

Uber aims to be a zero-emissions mobility platform by 2030 in Europe and North America, with a global target of 2040. EV drivers on Uber are leading the charge, transitioning to electric vehicles at five times the rate of the general public. This translates to up to four times the emissions benefit compared to regular drivers, highlighting the ridesharing industry’s potential to accelerate electrification. Uber’s near and long-term science-based emissions reduction targets have also been approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative, making them one of the first 30 US companies to achieve this distinction.
