Thinking about switching to an Electric Vehicle? Now might be the time with Lyft’s newest incentives! About two years ago, Lyft made an announcement that they wanted to reach 100% electric vehicles on their platform by the end of 2030. Just this week, Lyft expanded on that announcement by showcasing their new suit of offerings to make it easier and more cost effective for drivers to transitions to EVs.
Here is what Lyft states it they are doing to help drivers make the switch:
In addition to these new offerings, Lyft is also working hand in hand with Hyundai, Kia, Ford, and Polestar to expand on their rental partnerships for drivers who wish to rent an electric vehicle instead of buy one. To help each driver understand if renting or buying an EV is right for them, Lyft has also released a new educational website which will highlight the benefits of both sides.
According to Paul Augustine, Lyft’s Director of Sustainability, “Electrifying our transportation network is a crucial step in helping reverse the negative impacts of climate change. We know many drivers on Lyft want to switch to EVs, which is why we’re focused on addressing the biggest barriers they face in transitioning: upfront costs and access to charging. These offerings are the latest in many steps we are taking to support drivers in switching to an EV on Lyft.”
