As the world is making important steps towards electric cars, rideshare platforms are also supporting drivers make the switch. Uber aims to have a 100% electric fleet in London by 2025 and has teamed up with companies like Splend to support drivers gain access to electric cars. Driving an EV for Uber in London has never been easier or more affordable.

Splend is now an official Uber Clean Air Plan partner in London. Drivers can now use their Uber Clean Air savings to own an EV on a flexible, all-inclusive plan tailored for PHV drivers.

What is Uber’s Clean Air Fund?

Uber has established a fund to subsidise electric car prices at partnering car dealers, helping drivers make the switch to electric cars.

For all trips you took between 16 January 2019 and 14 March 2022, Uber charged your riders a small fee, which went into your Clean Air Fund. Similar to a savings account, you can now access the money raised this way to buy a new electric car.

Where is Uber’s Clean Air Fund available?

Uber’s Clean Air Fund is currently only available in London.

How can Uber drivers claim the Clean Air Fund?

  1. Uber will reach out to you when you’re eligible for EV Assistance.
  2. You’ll be asked to contact an approved dealer, and inform them that you’re eligible to claim EV Assistance.
  3. You can place your order for your new car directly with the approved dealer.

How do I know if I’m eligible for EV Assistance?

To be eligible for EV Assistance you need to gather at least £100 in Clean Air Fees and have at least 150 trips completed in the last 8 weeks. Plus you will receive regular comms from Uber about your EV Assistance.

How much can Uber drivers claim from the Clean Air Fund?

The amount depends on the number of miles you’ve driven on the Driver app. The more you drive, the larger the amount drivers can claim. You can find your EV Assistance balance in the Uber driver app in your inbox. Look for an email called electric vehicle grant update.
