Landi Renzo Brasil, the Brazilian subsidiary of the Landi Renzo Group, has signed an exclusive collaboration contract with Uber, the global company that connects passengers and drivers. This agreement provides for the conversion of cars owned by Uber partners all over Brazil to natural gas fuel using Landi Renzo’s methane gas components and systems.
In addition, Landi Renzo approved workshops will provide after-sales service.
The partnership is expected to thrive thanks to Uber’s initiative to offer selected partner drivers in Brazil a special financing line so they can purchase and install Landi Renzo CNG kits and pay in weekly installments.
Landi Renzo will provide Uber’s partner drivers with educational sessions on the benefits given by natural gas and the conversion of vehicles to natural gas, both through the staff of the Landi Renzo approved workshop network in the hubs of Uber in Brazil, and through the online channels of Uber (website and app). The offer also responds to a desire made by the drivers themselves to be able to convert their vehicles to natural gas.
Cristiano Musi, CEO of Landi Renzo, declared: “This partnership is an incredible opportunity for our Group to open up to a new category of users of our systems and to contribute to the promotion of green solutions in one of the most important countries for the automotive sector in Latin America. São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are the first and third fleet of Uber’s partner drivers in the world.”
“Landi Renzo is seeking to replicate the same agreement in Mexico”, Musi added.
Fabio Plein, director of Uber in São Paulo, says: “Ridesharing has revolutionized the relationship of millions of people and their private cars, and it is exciting to imagine the potential it has to push for change and multiply conversions to natural gas, which is a much better alternative for the environment.”
