Uber: London drivers must use hybrid or fully electric cars from 2020
Ride-hailing service says it is aiming to tackle pollution by banning vehicles that do not have an electric motor
Uber drivers will be banned from using vehicles that are not a hybrid or fully electric in London from 2020, as part of a plan to help tackle illegal levels of air pollution in the capital.
While hybrids such as the Toyota Prius have become synonymous with the ride-hailing service, today just under half of its London UberX drivers have an electrified vehicle. The firm said that must rise to 100% by 2020.
