Uber introduce the Clean Air Plan to fight London's pollution

Uber introduce the Clean Air Plan to fight London's pollution
In an attempt to help reduce air pollution in London, Uber has launched its Clean Air Plan, which has been designed to support the Mayor of London’s vision for a cleaner, healthier capital. More than 3.6m Londoners regularly use the Uber app, and half of the miles travelled on UberX in the capital are in hybrid or electric vehicles (EVs). However, Uber is not stopping there and wants to do even more.

Electrifying vehicle technologies in the modern age

Electrifying vehicle technologies in the modern age
Despite appearing to be a modern phenomenon, the first electric vehicle took to the road in 1832 and in 1899, outselling all other available options, including steam and gasoline powered vehicles. Since 1935, with the invention of the internal combustion engines, gasoline-powered vehicles have become the popular choice. This changed in 2016, which saw a record in the sale of electric vehicles worldwide, with 750,000 cars sold.

Drivers choose 'green' power for their EVs

Drivers choose 'green' power for their EVs
Two-thirds of all German motorists can imagine buying an electric car. This is the result of a representative survey conducted by Statista on behalf of Infineon Technologies. Younger drivers are more open to e-cars, and are now boosting e-mobility. In the age group between 18 and 39 years, the approval rate for e-mobility is almost 80%. In the age group of the 60 to 69-year-old, however, only around 50% approve.

Taking charge of electric vehicles

Taking charge of electric vehicles
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) requires a power electronic system between the power grid and the high-voltage battery pack located inside the vehicle. This electronic system is split into two parts: a charging station, which is also called electric vehicle service equipment (EVSE) or an off-board charger, and an onboard charger inside the vehicle.
