Munich / Mountain View, CA – June 6, 2018. The BMW Group continues to build on its leading international role in the field of sustainable mobility, announcing today a new partnership with the non-profit Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) to develop clean solutions for future urban transportation.

 

As part of the cooperation, BMW Group kicks off its annual BMW Group Dialogue Series at LACI on June 6th and 7th. The theme for this year’s series of sustainability-oriented stakeholder discussions is “Cities in Progress,” which will focus on analyzing the specific transportation challenges facing cities and debating concrete solutions for improving quality of life.

 

 “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 by the time the world arrives in Los Angeles by 2028. 

 

“We are so pleased that the BMW Group has decided to kick off their ‘Cities in Progress’ Dialogues here at LACI— it’s particularly fitting as BMW has committed to join with public and private sector leaders, utilities and regulators in LACI's newly formed transportation innovation and electrification partnership,” stated Matt Petersen, LACI President and CEO.

 

“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.”

 

The cooperation between LACI and the BMW Group will be managed locally from the BMW Group Technology Office USA in Mountain View, CA.

 

Sharing know-how and promoting innovative ideas

As city populations continue to grow across the world, so too do the challenges and opportunities for premium urban mobility. With billions of transportation infrastructure upgrades slated over the next ten years, the broader Los Angeles region is uniquely positioned to create a transportation future that evolves beyond automobile-centric transit toward modern, multimodal transit.

 

The annual BMW Group Dialogues bring together representatives from cities, companies, institutes, universities, and residents to listen to one another and discuss issues as equals. Based on these dialogues, the BMW Group aims to refine its own strategy and become a driving force for urban mobility in cities over the long term.

 

The “Cities in Progress” BMW Group Dialogues begin on June 6th in Los Angeles, which is emerging as a key innovator in the development and implementation of cutting edge mobility technology. Subsequently, this year’s BMW Group Dialogues will travel to Melbourne, Shenzhen, Rotterdam and Berlin. Each event consists of two workshops, attended by 30 to 40 stakeholders and the same number of students. In all five cities, topics such as population density, regulation and infrastructure will be discussed with eminent stakeholders to create a comprehensive picture of all challenges in the respective cities.


As part of the BMW Group Dialogues, the BMW Group is also working with the C40 group, a global network of 90 cities worldwide committed to fighting climate change and reducing greenhouse gases in cities through targeted measures.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
