How should an Uber Partner use an EV?
Most of the EV’s WeFlex and other providers in the market offer have ~40 KW batteries which means a range of approximately 168 to 194 miles of range. The range will deplete a bit if you use air conditioning or heating.
How you drive your EV is super important too, so for a Nissan Leaf you should drive in Eco mode and B Mode which recovers braking energy.
Cost savings for Uber Partners driving an EV
Driving an EV really means you save money and the planet so it’s a win win. The following savings apply:
- Use the Uber Clean Air Fund which makes your vehicle cheaper e.g. if you rent a vehicle you get £23/week off your rental + once you’re in an EV you get to keep the extra surcharge 15p per mile Clean Air Fund surcharge
- No Road Tax
- No Congestion Charge – saving you £52.50 / week if you drive into the zone
- Lower Fuel costs – our customers tell us they are spending half the amount on fuel vs a normal petrol hybrid car – estimated £40/week saving
These savings really add up, and make it attractive to switch to an EV using the Uber Clean Air Fund.
