Volkswagen, along with Uber, is launching a pilot project that will use electric vehicles with a sustainable taxi service called “Uber Green”. The e-Golf, a zero-emission alternative in the Volkswagen model range is now available in Berlin. The goal of this pilot project is to use a number of one-year-old e-Golf cars in the service. The objective is to reach a thousand and more in the upcoming months. The pilot project will fist run in Berlin, and will potentially expand to other European cities. Volkswagen had already been using the e-Golf successfully in its own car-sharing service We Share since 2018.
Holger B. Santel, Head of Sales and Marketing Germany for the Volkswagen Passenger Car brand, said: “Through our cooperation with Uber, we are helping to improve air quality in urban areas with our locally carbon-neutral electric vehicles”.
As part of its e-offensive, the Volkswagen brand is planning to offer electric cars in the major vehicle segments by 2022 and expects to produce up to 1.5 million e-cars in 2025.
