Ride-hailing firm, Uber, has announced a partnership with BP Chargemaster to give drivers who use the Uber app access to discounts when using the BP charging network and when installing smart Homecharge charging points.


From Autumn 2020, drivers will also be able to access Uber-dedicated charging points at a series of rapid charging hubs that BP is rolling out.

The first EV charging hub will open in Westminster in London.

Uber has said they are also collaborating with some of the world’s electric car manufacturers. Their partnership with Nissan supports the introduction of all-electric Nissan LEAFs for drivers who use the Uber app, the firm said.

A spokesperson for Uber, said: “Meanwhile, vehicle vendor partners Otto and Weflex ensure drivers with Uber can use the money they accumulate through the Clean Air Plan to rent, lease or buy their new EV - whatever their preference.”

All these steps come in addition to participation in Optimise Prime - a multi-year trial with companies such as Centrica, Royal Mail, and Hitachi.


This project, part funded by Ofgem and Innovate UK, is the world’s largest commercial battery electric vehicle (BEV) trial and which they say focuses on helping to ensure charging infrastructure is available where it is needed, in the right quantities without putting stress on the grid.
