Uber Technologies and Wallbox, an electric vehicle charging firm, announced on Tuesday that their cooperation will now cover the whole United States.
In the Bay Area, the firms previously operated a pilot program that offered Uber drivers a reduced bundle that included a Wallbox Pulsar Plus charger, installation, and the option to finance the package.
Drivers across the United States will be able to take advantage of Wallbox's cheap EV charging bundle as a result of the expansion. Uber said the expansion will begin in January with Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle, with a goal of reaching nationwide service by the end of April.
In addition, Uber and Wallbox are in talks regarding a global rollout that would start in Europe and Canada.
Uber has a program that allows drivers of completely electric vehicles to earn an extra $1 on every Uber journey — up to $4,000 yearly — as part of its goal to become a zero-emission platform in the United States and Canada by 2030.
Uber's stock is up 1.95 % today. Cowen cut its price target on Uber from $82 to $76 on Monday, citing the Omicron variation as having a minor influence on the mobility rebound.
