Two days following a meeting between Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Indian billionaire Gautam Adani, discussions have emerged regarding a potential collaboration between the Adani Group and the American ride-hailing giant. As per an ET report, the Adani Group is exploring the possibility of introducing its electric passenger cars onto Uber’s ride-hailing platform.

The anticipated partnership is anticipated to strengthen the presence of Adani’s multifaceted super app, Adani One, which currently offers an array of services including flight and vacation bookings, airport services, and cab bookings, with Uber potentially joining its roster. During his visit to India, Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi convened with Gautam Adani and other business leaders on February 24. Following the meeting, Adani shared a photo of himself with Khosrowshahi, lauding Uber’s endeavors in the Indian market and hinting at potential future collaborations with the ride-hailing company.

Despite not being a conventional car manufacturer, the Adani Group reportedly aims to venture into the electric passenger vehicle market, citing substantial demand within its ports and airports businesses. A partnership with Uber could facilitate Adani’s entry into this segment, with plans to procure, brand, and integrate electric vehicles into Uber’s existing fleet.

This prospective collaboration holds the potential to significantly influence India’s gig economy by accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles. Moreover, it aligns with Adani’s broader investment strategy, which includes a $100 billion commitment to various industries over the next decade, emphasizing the transition to sustainable energy. The initiative also complements Uber’s environmental efforts, such as the introduction of Uber Green in Delhi, aimed at promoting zero-emission mobility.
