The petrol-hybrid Niro is a favourite amongst rideshare drivers in London, and the e-Niro has quickly established a similar reputation with those lucky enough to have driven it.
This reputation was further enhanced in 2021 when the Kia e-Niro won What Car? – Car of the Year in the small electric car category.
The e-Niro comes with more space than its predecessor, the Kia Niro Self-Charging Hybrid, with a 451-litre boot which grows to 1,405 litres if you fold the seats, making it the perfect car for food- or package deliveries across London.
With an impressive 282-mile range on a single charge, you can drive the e-Niro around for two straight days, earning a flexible income.
Not only is it cheaper to charge and service an electric car, but on-demand drivers in London can save up to £15 per day on the Congestion Charge. That’s compared to a traditional hybrid or a modern combustion engine, but the ULEZ charge exemption saves you a further £12.50, a daily fee charged in Central London for older, more polluting cars.
Another way an EV saves you money is by accessing Uber’s Clean Air Fund, which subsidises the cost of owning an electric PCO car. In a nutshell, driving an electric car for Uber means 3p/mile more earnings after each ride.
