Uber has confirmed that its ‘clean air’ fees, announced last October, will begin tomorrow in London.

The fee is a fairly chunky 15p per mile.  The money will be ring fenced and paid to Uber drivers in grants if they choose to buy an electric vehicle.

The published target is to fund a £3,000 per car grant by 2021 and a £4,500 grant by 2022.

Although, unless I’m being dim, this would appear to actively encourage drivers to hold off replacing their vehicle as long as possible whilst the money pot for grants fills up …..

Uber is aiming for an ‘all electric’ fleet in London by 2025.
