Uber allies with Renault and Nissan to electrify journeys in Europe

09 September 2020 | Renault and Nissan, within their Alliance, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Uber with the aim of electrifying its customers’ journeys in Europe.

Uber allies with Renault and Nissan to electrify journeys in Europe

The companies will now explore a strong partnership to provide partner drivers on the Uber App with affordable electric vehicles in European markets, notably in the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands and Portugal. It follows a successful pilot between Nissan and Uber in the UK.

The MoU between the companies was announced today as part of Uber’s announcement to become a zero-emission mobility platform. By 2025, 50% of kilometers driven on Uber’s platform in aggregate across seven European capitals (Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Lisbon, London, Madrid and Paris) will be in electric vehicles. This will mean that riders will be able to select a zero-emission vehicle in cities representing 80 percent of Uber European business by the end of 2021.

Under the MoU, the companies will now explore how working together can accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles and the electric ecosystem in European cities, including efforts to:

  • Offer partner drivers on the Uber App access to Renault and Nissan electric vehicles: Renault ZOE and Nissan LEAF and future new EVs from both companies.
  • Extend the United Kingdom pilot into France by the end of 2020, with a view to scaling the programme to the Netherlands, Portugal, and other markets.
  • Launch joint marketing and education plans to promote the electric vehicle offers and benefits to Uber’s partner drivers and offer test drives to allow them to experience the cars.

 “This MoU with Uber is an acknowledgement of our ability to conquest new markets and to support professionals in their energy transition. Today, we capitalize on our competitive advantage: an attractive EV-offer that contributes to large scale electric mobility roll-out. We have worked closely with local authorities over the past years to propose solutions to the growing challenges facing cities: transportation, decarbonization and air quality. With the signature of this MoU we aim to join our forces to accelerate the movement", said Gilles Normand, SVP, Electric Vehicles & Mobility Services, Groupe Renault.

Jordi Vila, Divisional Vice President for Sales and Marketing at Nissan Europe, added: “From 10 years of experience with the Nissan LEAF, we know people love driving electric, and that making the switch can help drivers to save money and support the clean air ambitions of our major cities. By teaming up with Uber in the UK, we have already been able to increase the awareness and adoption of zero-emission vehicles, and we are looking forward to exploring how to roll that out further in Europe.”

Ancaster Nissan Bromley staff were good because they had the stock available to support my vehicle interest, were flexible on price for my trade in vehicle, quick turnaround of documentation and car preparation ready to complete the deal and drive away.

My experience was alright. They oversold to some extent. My tank was not filled all the way up, which they had promised and other little oversights that took away from the experience.

Ancaster Nissan South Croydon were fantastic because from the moment I step on the store, I was welcome straight away, even though I saw that all salesmen were busy, one of them, already serving a customer, offered me to sit down and asked me to please wait couple of minutes for another representative. This may sound like the minimum and obvious that you would expect, but I have different experiences with other dealerships in the same area. This attitude made feel welcome, even though everyone, including me, were wearing masks. The knowledge and expertise of my representative was second to none. I was very impressed by the high standard of the show room and the car that I ended up buying the next day. Even though I didn't take their finance, because I had already a personal loan with my bank, their numbers were very fair and really well explained.

I'd endorse Ancaster Nissan Slough because as a black person, sometimes when you request a service, the treatment is usually bad at times, like does that have me no attention at all. Angelo showed interest and I felt that he treated me the way I am supposed to be treated as a human being. He made me feel welcome and heard. He was patient and did put himself in my shoes as a new buyer. Angelo was just beyond great. Have him a salary raise or a year of paid leave.

The experience at Ancaster Nissan Bromley was very satisfying
