Uber going electric in Kiev
Ride-hailing company Uber is taking advantage of a growing appetite for electric vehicles in Ukraine. The company has announced that by the end of April, it is to introduce 200 electric vehicles into its offering in the country’s capital, Kiev. Under the label ‘UberGreen’, the vehicles concerned are set to include a good range from the EVs available on the market: Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe, Hyundai Ioniq, Tesla Model S, BMW i3, Chevrolet Volt and Chevrolet Bolt.
Uber is the operator in Kiev, which means that drivers are not left simply to use their own cars. This is likely to lead to a higher level of success than has sometimes been seen in cities where this is not the case.
