Motional’s driverless vehicles are designed to provide autonomous ride-hail and delivery services.
We believe moving people presents the biggest opportunity for driverless technology to benefit communities, and that remains our primary focus. We recently expanded into autonomous delivery as it complements our existing robotaxi technology and is another channel to serve consumers.
A Safer Way to Move
A pioneer in autonomous ride-hail
Providing a safe way for people to move about their lives is at the core of our mission. We pioneered autonomous ride-hail when we launched the world’s first public robotaxi pilot in 2016. Since then, we’ve transported hundreds of thousands of riders through our public robotaxi service in Las Vegas. Our unparalleled experience has made us the AV provider of choice for the ride-hail industry. Starting in 2023, we’ll conduct fully driverless rides for Lyft customers in Las Vegas, before expanding to other major cities. We also have a 10-year commercial partnership with Uber to deploy our robotaxis on the Uber network in cities across the U.S.
A Better Way to Deliver
A first-of-its-kind delivery partner
In 2021, we announced Motional was expanding beyond ride-hail to offer convenient autonomous delivery. Our teams spent months studying every touchpoint in a delivery in order to create a seamless experience for the restaurants and end-customers. We modified our IONIQ 5 robotaxi to have a special compartment to transport food, with customers able to easily retrieve their order by swiping on our partner’s app and collecting it from the backseat. In 2022, we became the first-ever AV company to conduct autonomous deliveries for Uber Eats customers in California.
