Uber drivers will be banned from using vehicles that are not a hybrid or fully electric in London from 2020, as part of a plan to help tackle illegal levels of air pollution in the capital. While hybrids such as the Toyota Prius have become synonymous with the ride-hailing service, today just under half of its London UberX drivers have an electrified vehicle. The firm said that must rise to 100% by 2020. Diesel-powered cars on the app’s other services, such as UberXL for larger cars, will also be banned from 2020 in the capital. For other UK cities blighted by dirty air, where fewer UberX cars are electrified already, the 100% hybrid and electric deadline is 2022.
