London Uber drivers to charge electric car fee

PA Uber is planning to add a surcharge to all fares booked via its app in London to help its drivers buy electric vehicles. Uber said drivers working for 40 hours per week could get cash help of about £1,500 a year from passengers via the top-up fee. Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber's chief executive, said in a statement that the plan was a "a long-term investment in the future of London aimed at going all electric in the capital in 2025". It said the introduction of the fee would build on other partnerships it has fostered to improve London's infrastructure for electric vehicles which have led to the installation of more charging points. Other concrete steps Uber could take would involve it letting drivers of electric vehicles keep more of the cash passengers pay, he said.
