Lyft Aims For Self-Driving Cars That Run 100% On Renewable Energy By 2025

By

Ride-hailing services have already helped the environment and increased the standard vehicle’s value. People working in big cities can ditch driving through traffic congestion and just get a ride, and those who rarely use their car can get some money out of it. Lyft is hoping to take that to the next level with the announcement on Thursday that they are planning to have only autonomous electric vehicles that run solely on renewable energy by 2025.

Lyft shared their lofty goals on a blog post, sharing that the process will begin later this year in Boston. In a collaboration with nuTonomy, they will be testing out their first autonomous vehicles in the city. After further research, there will likely be the mass manufacturing of these cars in the near future, and all of them will be 100 percent fueled by renewable energy.
