GM and Uber team up to accelerate the transition to an all-electric future

News

General Motors is teaming up with Uber to help accelerate the rideshare industry’s transition to an all-electric, zero-emissions future by offering drivers on Uber’s platform special pricing on the purchase of a new electric vehicle and charging accessories.

“Improving access to EVs for on-demand service providers can help reduce overall tailpipe emissions in cities across the country and help accelerate widespread EV adoption,” said Sigal Cordeiro, GM Executive Director of Sales and Marketing for Global Innovation. “Our collaboration with Uber will facilitate drivers' switch to an EV, empowering these drivers, their passengers and communities to experience electric vehicles and contribute to cleaner air in our cities.”

For current eligible drivers on the Uber platform in the United States and Canada, GM will extend the same discount it offers its employees on the purchase of a new 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV. US drivers will also have access to 20% below MSRP on Bolt EV accessories, including at-home charging equipment. Starting in Los Angeles and Denver, well-qualified drivers with Uber Diamond-tier status will also be eligible for special financing through a pilot programme with GM Financial.

“Through this programme we're offering new ways for drivers and customers across the country to fall in love with driving electric,” said Steve Majoros, Vice President of Chevrolet Marketing. “This is a key opportunity to grow Chevrolet's EV business through a program that matches our expertise and strength with a rideshare platform that brings its own scale and reach.”

The Chevrolet Bolt EV has benefited rideshare drivers for years. GM data suggests rideshare drivers can experience significantly lower maintenance costs when using a Bolt EV compared to traditional gas-powered vehicles. Drivers also cite in-vehicle technology and the spacious interior as benefits.

This announcement continues General Motors' commitment to accelerating widespread EV adoption and an all-electric, zero-emissions future.
