Moreover, Uber also plans to launch its own diesel scrappage scheme for all drivers in the capital next month, which will see it give up to £1,500 of Uber credit to the first 1,000 Londoners who trade in their older pre-Euro 4 diesel cars "as part of our commitment to help London ditch diesels".
The UK Government has proposed banning diesel and petrol cars by 2040, and Scotland hopes to do the same but eight years earlier.
The ride-hailing service also announced its long-term plans, by stating that by 2025, it will require all Uber drivers operating in London to be equipped with fully electric or plug-in hybrids.
It is estimated that more than 400,000 people use UberPOOL and those using the service will be exempt from the 35p charge.
"Air pollution is a growing problem and we're determined to play our part in tackling it with this bold plan", said Fred Jones, Uber's Head of UK Cities.
Uber will stop using diesel vehicles in London by the end of 2019, the company announced in a statement on Friday.
Uber's 40,000 licensed drivers in London will also be given financial assistance to switch to a new vehicle, with grants of up to £5,000 towards a hybrid or fully electric auto. "We're also aiming for every vehicle on the Uber app in London to be electric by 2025".
Uber is looking to get in line with London's forthcoming transport rules regarding the use of zero emissions vehicles for private hire auto service in the city. Uber is believed to be working closely with electric vehicle manufacturers, such as Nissan, to provide the best deals for drivers. "Londoners already know many cars on our app are hybrids, but we want to go much further and go all electric in the capital".
As for Uber, the company plans to help its United Kingdom drivers make the switch by giving them up to $6,600 toward the cost of upgrading. Chris Large, of the sustainability charity Global Action Plan, said: "The speed of Uber's commitment to move away from diesel reflects the urgency of action to address our air pollution health crisis".
"But pollution from cars is as much about climate change as it is about air quality. Other companies and organisations need to follow".
