Uber wants all its cars in London to be electric by 2025 ... and you're going to pay for it

Uber announced on Friday that it wants all its cars in London to be electric by 2025. It's an ambitious goal, one that will take some serious investment.

UberPool Trips, however, won't have the added charge.
