It might feel too good to be true, but it is! Splend will double your EV assistance to make owning an EV even more affordable. 

As the world is making significant steps towards green mobility, rideshare platforms also support drivers to switch to electric cars. Uber aims to have a 100% electric fleet in London by 2025 and has teamed up with Splend to support drivers gain access to electric cars through the Uber Clean Air Plan. 

Uber set up a Clean Air Fund, which helped drivers save up an amount of money called Uber EV Assistance. Drivers can use their EV Assistance towards owning an EV on a flexible, all-inclusive plan from Splend. 

But there’s more to it. As we’re constantly making efforts to fast-track a greener future, we wanted to make EVs more affordable than ever, so we launched EV Boost 

With this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Splend doubles your EV assistance to reduce the cost of a brand-new EV. 

That’s it, no strings attached. This makes owning an EV more affordable than ever, so now is the perfect time to make the switch. 

Owning an EV is now more affordable than ever!

We double your Uber EV assistance to reduce the cost of a brand-new EV

How does Uber’s Clean Air plan work? 

For all trips you took between 16 January 2019 and 14 March 2022, Uber charged your riders a small fee, which went into your EV Assistance. Similar to a savings account, you can now access the money raised, to buy a new car through Splend. 

How does EV Boost work? 

1. Find your EV assistance

Open the Uber driver app and look for “Electric vehicle grant” in your inbox. If you’re having trouble finding it, our team can check if you’re eligible.  

2. Head to our online EV boost calculator

Select your favourite EV and use the slider to match your EV assistance found in step one. The calculator will automatically apply our EV boost, doubling your EV assistance. For example, if you have £3,000 EV assistance, we’re doubling it to £6,000 you can use as credit towards paying for the EV you want. The calculator shows you how much you save per week based on the ownership term you select. 

3. Submit your application

Now that you calculated your savings, it’s time to submit your enquiry and speak to our expert team about getting started with EV Boost.  

4. Get on the road

Start putting your weekly payments towards owning your brand-new EV.  

Bonus step

If you own the car you’re driving for Uber and want to trade it for a brand-new EV, with Splend’s part-exchange, we can take that old car off your hands and contribute even more towards your new EV.

EV Boost is available on our Flexi own plan. This offer can even be used in conjunction with our part-exchange program and our referral program. 

TIP: If you’re a Splend customer and have a friend with EV Assistance, give them your referral code and collect a £200 bonus. 

What does Splend offer? 

Splend is more than a car subscription company. We provide you with a safe and reliable Uber-ready brand-new EV you can pick up the same week you apply. Uber drivers with EV Assistance can further reduce their minimum term by 50%, making it even more flexible.
