Cabify promotes electrification of collaborative drivers and taxis via Tesla

The Wall Connector charger is compatible with Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y, and is capable of delivering up to 71 km of range per hour of charging. Electrified vehicles that collaborate with Cabify can access exclusive categories, such as ‘Cabify Eco’, and increase their revenue.

MADRID – The multi-mobility platform Cabify and the US electric car company Tesla have signed an agreement to promote the electrification of collaborative drivers in Spain. Self-employed drivers and taxi drivers who collaborate with Cabify will receive the Tesla Wall Connector charger for free when purchasing a Tesla vehicle, courtesy of Cabify. The goal is to boost the decarbonization of Cabify’s collaborative drivers, providing them with access to zero-emission vehicles at the best prices and the necessary infrastructure to operate them.

The Tesla Wall Connector delivered by Cabify makes charging the vehicle directly at home or in the garage quick and convenient by accommodating most home electrical systems, with customizable power levels across a wide range of grid connections and amperage ratings. It is compatible with Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y and is capable of delivering up to 71km of range per hour of charging, with up to 11.5kW / 32 amps of power depending on the model. This allows installation in most homes and garages, as well as workplaces.

This commercial agreement is part of Cabify’s Sustainable Business Strategy, which seeks to promote electric mobility through agreements with manufacturers and the promotion of the use of this type of vehicle by private and corporate users.

Exclusive categories for electrified vehicles

Cabify has the ‘Cabify Eco’ category, which offers users only electrified vehicles (electric, plug-in hybrids, and hybrids), leaving out cars with higher emissions. This category is available to all those companies that move with ‘Cabify for Business’ in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, and Alicante and is already the category most used by companies traveling with Cabify.

The ‘Cabify Eco’ category has a significantly higher average ticket than the standard category of private users, as the corporate user tends to make longer journeys and, on many occasions, in those time slots with less mobility in the city, which are also the hours with lower turnover volumes for drivers.

Funding to accelerate and boost sustainable mobility

Cabify has recently announced that it has raised $110 million in funding, a portion of which will be used to achieve its Sustainable Business Strategy. This capital raising includes the granting of a 40 million euros loan from the EIB to boost Cabify’s commitment to sustainable mobility and decarbonization of its collaborating fleets. The company’s objectives are to ensure that 100% of the rides made via the platform are in decarbonized fleets by 2025 in Spain and five years later, in 2030, in Latin America.
