Uber to Introduce EVs in India in Push to Clean Cars

By Aditi Shah

Uber Technologies (UBER.N) said on Monday it will introduce electric vehicles (EVs) in India for ride-sharing, its first move to adopt clean cars amid an Indian government push for greater electrification of public transport and shared mobility.

With plans to introduce 25,000 EVs over three years, Uber is stepping up competition with local rival BluSmart, an electric mobility start-up backed by BP’s (BP.L) venture fund, which has taken the lead in India’s electric taxi space.
