EV Financing – Uber has signed an MoU with India’s largest Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI), the MoU makes Rupees 1000 Cr of low interest loans available to our fleet partners for fleet partners to purchase EV and CNG vehicles.

EV Charging Infrastructure – Uber is bringing its global mobility agreement with BP pulse to India in partnership with JioBP for fast-charging Uber EVs and also tying up with GMR Green to further enhance the changing infrastructure network for Uber EVs.
