Uber launching electric vehicle rides in Johannesburg

Uber has partnered with BMW and Nissan to offer cab rides in electric vehicles around the Johannesburg area.

Called UberGREEN, the pilot project for the service will take place between 9 May and 9 June 2016.

During the pilot, riders will be able to request a BMW i3 or Nissan LEAF electric vehicle – operated by Uber driver-partners in Johannesburg at uberX prices.

Woolworths WRewards members will, for a limited period, be among the first to have access to the vehicles before the pilot opens to the wider public.
