Uber says it will have 1500 EVs in its fleet by year-end
The ride-hailing app has a fleet of 350 EVs, which will be expanded to 1,500 by the year-end.

re: Uber says it will have 1500 EVs in its fleet by year-end
Quadrupling the number of EVs in their fleet will be reasonably easy for Uber, given that they are starting from a very small number of EVs.
The bigger challenge would be the 24 month goal of making EVs a meaningful part of the overall portfolio. Uber alone cannot make that happen. Some auto maker would have to offer an EV which will last the day without recharging for a cabbie. Also, that EV needs to be competitively priced, and must be available in a no frills variant.
