London Uber drivers to charge electric car fee from next year



Uber says it plans to charge users in London an extra 15p per mile from next year as it gears up for an all-electric future in the UK capital.
 
The ride-hailing app's chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi made the announcement while on a visit to London.


He had been due in Saudi Arabia to attend the so-called "Davos of the desert" investment conference but joined other prominent business leaders in pulling out following outrage over the suspected murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.


Mr Khosrowshahi, whose firm has been looking to make amends following a bruising licensing battle with transport regulators in London, told reporters he wanted its vehicles in the city to be all-electric from 2025.
