The 24-year-old suspect, of Westmacote Drive, Feltham, appeared in custody at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday charged with four counts of attempted murder, the Met said.
He was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Sunday evening.
The police said that the details of the next court hearing have not yet been announced.
Matt said two other men have been arrested as part of the investigation.
One man, aged 54, who was arrested for perverting the course of justice, has been released on bail pending further enquiries.
Another, 36 years old, was arrested for helping a criminal and released under investigation.
Police said the investigation into the circumstances of the collision is ongoing, but it is not being treated as terrorism-related.
