Uber pledges all-electric fleet
Ride-hailing app Uber has pledged to make all cars available through its app electric by 2040.
The company said that it would spend $800m (£614m) to help drivers switch to electric cars, creating partnerships with manufacturers to ensure discounts.
Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi said in BBC News, “It's our responsibility as the largest mobility platform in the world to more aggressively tackle the challenge of climate change.
“While we're not the first to set ambitious goals in transitioning to [electric vehicles], we intend to be the first to make it happen.”
