The number of private hire vehicles that are fully electric, and the reason why your driver today is a hero.

London is at a pivotal point when it comes to toxic air pollution, and we’ve all been called upon to do our part.

Your PCO driver today has made the decision to do away with the gas guzzling diesels of the past, and to work in an environmentally friendly EV.

It might not seem like a huge decision, but even an ocean is built out of tiny droplets.

So why is it important?

Road vehicles are currently one of the biggest contributors of air pollution in London, racking up nearly half of all the harmful gases in the city.

Uber drivers, like the one driving your vehicle right now, make up a huge part of that. That’s why each PCO driver who makes the brave decision that yours has, is helping this country to become greener and cleaner than it was before.
