UK-based Arrival Group SA (NASDAQ:ARVL) is teaming up with Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE:UBER) to develop an affordable, purpose-built electric vehicle (EV) for drivers.
The Arrival Car, which will enter production in the third quarter of 2023, is designed to cut pollution arising from ride-hailing services, which count 30mln estimated drivers across the whole sector.
Uber has committed to becoming a fully electric mobility platform in London by 2025 and by 2030 across North America and Europe.
A typical ride-hailing vehicle will on average drive 45-50,000 kilometres a year compared to 12,000km for a typical vehicle.
Arrival, which was founded in Oxford and now has factories on both sides of the Atlantic, will collaborate with Uber drivers in the design process to make sure it suits their needs, with the final vehicle design to be revealed this year.
Following the launch of Uber’s Clean Air Plan in London two years ago, more than £135mln has been raised to support the move to cleaner cars.
Uber Green recently launched in London, giving passengers the ability to select a fully electric vehicle at no extra cost, while drivers pay a lower service fee.
So far in the capital over 3.5mln trips have taken place in fully electric vehicles.
