Uber pushes to electrify service with help from Renault, Nissan, and GM

Uber has pledged to make its fleet of cars carbon neutral, however concedes this process will likely take two decades. A spokesperson for Uber told CarAdvice the company is “committing to become a fully zero-emission platform by 2040, with 100 per cent of rides taking place in zero-emission vehicles, on public transit, or with micro-mobility”. “This is a global commitment and includes Australia,” the spokesperson added.

Right-hook ruled out for GM's "democratised" Bolt and Ampera-e EVs

Tesla needn't worry about its affordability-focused Model 3 being challenged by General Motors' new Bolt EV in Australia - it won't be coming here. The Bolt was first revealed in market-ready form back in January, with a 150kW/360Nm electric motor fuelled by a 60kWh battery pack. The small hatch, priced at around the AU$40,000 mark in the US, claims a 320-kilometre driving range and a 0-100km/h of "less than seven seconds".
