Stellantis currently accounts for 25% of vehicles available on Uber in France.

We are delighted to run this partnership, which strengthens our ability to reach our goal of 50% electric vehicles on the app by 2025. With our combined expertise we are making the transition to electric a reality!”

We are proud to align with Uber and look forward to supporting their drivers with mobility choices today that position us to meet the goals of tomorrow!” shares Brigitte Courtehoux, CEO Free2move.
“The Citroen e-C4 X is particularly suited towards EV drivers. Produced in Europe, this spacious vehicle features a convenient large trunk as well as a roomy interior, under the elegant silhouette of a fastback with the modern attitude of an SUV. Complete with rapid charging, this is clearly a vehicle that combines comfort and efficiency, both of which will be appreciated on a daily basis,” shares Vincent Cobee, Managing Director of Citroen.

Uber’s mission is to create opportunity through movement. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 34 billion trips later, we're building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.
