Motional was formed in 2020 as a joint venture between Hyundai Motor Group and Aptiv. While technically a new company, the Motional team dates back to two of the world's first AV start-ups, nuTonomy and Ottomatika, both of which were acquired by Aptiv and later spun out into Motional.
- Our Technology: Motional is developing Level 4 autonomous vehicles for ride-hail and on-demand delivery
- Our New AV: Motional's next-gen vehicle is the all-electric IONIQ 5 robotaxi, developed through strategic collaboration with Hyundai.

- Our Testing: Motional conducts public road testing in Boston, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas, Santa Monica, and Singapore. The diversity of our testing enables smart, scalable technology that can safely navigate a wide range of environments and conditions.
- Our Commercial Ride-hail Operations: For over five years, Motional has operated a public robotaxi service in Las Vegas on the Lyft network. Through that service, Motional has conducted over 125,000 autonomous rides, with over 95% of passengers awarding their ride five-stars. In December 2022, Motional began conducting autonomous rides for Uber passengers in Las Vegas as part of a 10-year commercial agreement between the companies. Starting in 2023, Motional's ride-hail services with Lyft and Uber in Las Vegas will become fully driverless (with no vehicle operator behind the wheel) and will begin scaling to other major U.S. cities.
- Our Commercial Delivery Operations: In 2022, Motional entered the autonomous delivery space through a partnership with Uber Eats. Motional now conducts autonomous deliveries for Uber Eats customers in Santa Monica.
