Motional Launches First Robotaxi Service on the Uber Network

Motional’s all-electric IONIQ 5 robotaxis are now available to Uber riders in Las Vegas. Uber and Motional have a 10-year multimarket framework agreement that is expected to create one of the largest deployments of autonomous vehicles (AVs) on a major ride-hail network. Riders in Las Vegas interested in taking a ride in a Motional robotaxi can visit the Uber app and select UberX or Uber Comfort Electric options for a chance to be matched with a Motional AV. Motional is also conducting autonomous deliveries for Uber Eats customers in Santa Monica.
