For a while now, rideshare companies have incentivized their drivers to move towardelectric vehicles. In 2018, Uber set up a program called the EV Champions Initiative to achieve 5 million rides in electric vehicles in the subsequent year. They included in the program seven cities in the USA and Canada; Montreal, Seattle, and Austin, Texas, as well as four cities in California; Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Diego.
Lyft also stated that they want to have a 100% electric vehicle fleet by 2030 but will not provide any direct financial support to drivers looking to make the switch from gas-powered vehicles. Instead, they are trying to push for governments, states, and lawmakers to incentivize car owners to make the switch from gas-powered to electric.
