Moove partners with Paua

Moove, Uber’s largest vehicle supply partner in EMEA, is partnering with Paua – the UK’s largest electric vehicle (EV) roaming network for business drivers – to support the transition to electric vehicles in London for Uber drivers. 

Together, Moove and Paua have created the Moove Charge app, the first end-to-end EV charging network app specifically designed for ride-hailing drivers. The app will help drivers locate, pay for and charge vehicles at over 6,600 charge points across London. It will provide a cost saving of up to £340 on average, as well as enabling them to be more productive. 

Moove operates across 13 markets globally and launched in London, the first of its European cities in August with a 100% EV rent-to-buy model that provides access to brand new, zero-emission Tesla Model 3 and Hyundai Ioniq vehicles with no upfront costs and a flat weekly fee. Moove recently raised £15m in debt financing and aims to scale to 10,000 EVs in London over the next three years. 

London has a fast-growing network of EV charge points, however, these are operated by a fragmented market of charge point operators (CPOs) and suppliers. Furthermore, charging requires forward planning to locate charge points and account for charge time. This is even more pivotal for ride-hailing drivers where time lost can heavily impact their earning capacity. Crucial to drivers is the ability to access a vast network of rapid and fast chargers which is currently spread across over 25 separate CPOs, each with its own app making navigation of the supply landscape and access to charge points cumbersome. Inadequate visibility of the available charge points across different networks is often a source of frustration among new adopters of EVs . The Moove Charge App has been designed specifically with these pain points in mind and facilitates a frictionless transition by providing easy location and ease of access to the largest network of slow, fast and ultrafast EV charge points across London.

Charlotte Bailey, Head of Europe at Moove, said: “Moove is an impact-led company committed to the electrification of mobility. Our mission is to empower mobility entrepreneurs on ride-sharing, e-logistics and last-mile delivery platforms to be more productive and successful, and to achieve financial security. PAUA has been a fantastic partner in our mission to support our customers in their transition to EVs.” 

Niall Riddell, CEO & co-founder at PAUA, said: “Soon Londoners will be able to select electric driven forms of transport for all their journeys from micro-mobility, private hire, busses and even their personal car. Providing a universal charging solution to enable this removes another barrier to the adoption of electric vehicles.”
