Uber is partnering with Lithium Urban Technologies, India’s largest electric vehicle fleet operator to deploy over 1,000 electric vehicles, all sedans, across Uber Rentals and Premier in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune over the coming months.
So far, they have already deployed more than 100 of these electric sedans, such as Mahindra eVerito and Tata Tigor EV, on our platform.
Lithium’s charging hubs in these cities have the capacity to charge multiple cars and buses simultaneously. They also have fast and slow chargers installed at multiple sites across these cities.
While a fast charger can charge a sedan in 90 minutes, a slow charger can do that in 8 to 9 hours.
After their partnerships with Yulu, Mahindra and SUN Mobility, this is the fourth partnership in this space that underscores their long term commitment to providing smarter mobility, building greener cities and creating healthier lives.
This is also in line with the recently announced global commitment to make all rides on our platform 100% emission-free by 2040 through zero-emission vehicles, and the integration of public transport and micro-mobility.
Over the next 12 months, Uber will scale up to 2,000 electric vehicles on the platform, including the Lithium EVs.
This partnership will continue to operationalize Uber’s vision of always being a responsible corporate citizen and building a more sustainable future.
