Our commitment to achieve 100% electric vehicles across the Lyft platform by 2030
Lyft is continuing its leadership in creating a cleaner, healthier, and more equitable future by announcing a bold commitment to reach 100% electric vehicles (EVs) used on the Lyft platform by 2030.
The shift to EVs will create opportunities for drivers to lower costs and keep more of their earnings.
Transportation currently accounts for the largest portion of greenhouse gas emissions in the US. Lyft is committed to leading the way to decarbonize its platform through vehicle electrification. Learn more in our Path to Zero Emissions plan.
EVs are good for the planet, drivers, and riders
More sustainable cities
Replacing gasoline-powered cars with EVs is a significant step forward in our efforts to fight climate change, and to improve the quality of life in our cities.
EVs produce no tailpipe emissions.
Once adopted widely, EVs hold the promise of making cities more liveable by dramatically reducing air pollution.
Helping drivers save money
We have no plans to require drivers to switch to EVs; instead, we believe we can help make driving an EV a profitable choice and are committed to helping drivers transition to these types of cars over time.
For drivers who’d like to drive electric without having to purchase a vehicle, Lyft is working to expand the availability of EVs through Express Drive, Lyft’s vehicle rental partner program.
Combining lower fuel costs with affordable rental rates, we anticipate that individual drivers can save hundreds of dollars per month, and thousands of dollars per year, on fuel costs alone.
A cleaner option for riders
In response to rider requests for cleaner vehicle options, we’re giving passengers in Portland the ability to connect with drivers using hybrid or electric vehicles through Green Mode. Over time, we expect to make Green Mode available more widely.
This is part of our larger effort to connect riders with more environmentally friendly transportation options through our platform.
