The BMW Group has announced a partnership with the non-profit Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) to develop clean solutions for future urban transportation.

“The BMW Group is a leader in the field of premium mobility, with more than a quarter of a million electrified BMW Group vehicles on the world’s roads and a range of connected and mobility services,” said Simon Euringer, VP of the BMW Group Technology Office USA. “The Incubator is an ideal partner for us as LACI pursues the same goals as the BMW Group and also has innovative visions and strategies.”

The purpose of LACI’s zero emissions transportation partnership is to bring together key partners to accelerate transportation electrification and zero-emissions goods movement ahead of the Los Angeles Summer Olympic Games in 2028.

“Given BMW is a driving force in urban mobility, we look forward to working together to establish the Zero Emissions 2028 Road Map, pilot new mobility innovations, and identify opportunities for start up while fighting climate change, reducing air pollution and improving quality of life in our cities,” explained Matt Petersen, LACI president and CEO.

The cooperation between LACI and the BMW Group will be managed locally from the BMW Group Technology Office USA in California.
