Uber (NYSE: UBER) and Wallbox N.V. (NYSE: WBX) reported a strategic partnership to simplify EVs for Bay Area ride share drivers using Uber. This partnership is part of Uber’s recent commitment to becoming a 100% zero emissions mobility platform in Canada, the USA and Europe by 2030. 80% of electric vehicle charging occurs at home. This partnership will provide drivers using Uber with an easy use, affordable one stop shop for home charging solutions. Wallbox will offer drivers with Uber a discounted package for a Wallbox charger with seamless installation and the opportunity to finance the package.
“Demand for EVs is rapidly increasing here in the US. To help accelerate the transition to more sustainable transportation, we need to continue to make charging accessible. Uber is a tech company at the heart of transport here in California, so it was natural for us to team up with them to give drivers using the platform access to smart at-home solutions.”Douglas Alfaro, General Manager for Wallbox North America
“Climate is a team sport and Uber is committed to doing our part to expedite the transition to zero-emissions mobility,” said Uber SVP of Mobility and Business Operations Andrew Macdonald. “Making electric vehicle charging solutions available at scale is essential to achieving our goals and we are excited to partner with Wallbox on this mission.”
