Las Vegas driverless vehicle company going electric

In Motional’s Las Vegas headquarters, dozens of cars sit ready for a daily drive and none require a driver to get behind the wheel to safely operate.

The fleet of autonomous vehicles have been on city streets downtown and on the Las Vegas Strip for years, but the company has pledged to make the rideshare cars greener and smarter in the near future…

Sierra applauded the company’s move to sunset their gas powered BMW fleet and go electric with Ioniq cars in the next few months.

Motional Public Policy senior manager Nick Greif said the company wanted to make personal car ownership obsolete by deploying a new generation of fully autonomous electric cars which can navigate without human interaction ready for rides with the press of an app.

The goal, he said, would be to reduce the impact of climate change on Las Vegas and vulnerable communities.
