In the Chinese city of Wuhan, ride service Uber is going green. The company is introducing ten hybrid electric vehicles to its fleet of cars through a partnership with Guangzhou Automobile.

The hybrid car service is expected to roll out this week and will be called UberGREEN, according to Tech in Asia. The new service will use Guangzhou Automobile’s Trumpchi GA5 REV car.

In April, the city of Wuhaun announced plans to add 1,000 electric vehicles to its fleet of taxis. Always keen to compete, Uber seems to be bringing out green car service just to stay up on the competition.

But Uber is also testing its UberGREEN service in other cities. So far the company appears to have tested electric car service in Chicago in the U.S. and Prague in the Czech Republic.
