InMotion Works to Change Mobility

Jaguar Land Rover’s mobility services business, InMotion, recently announced they will be investing in Lyft! Lyft is the quickest growing rideshare company in the United States.

Lyft was originally founded in 2012 as a way to bring people together using better transportation. Lyft is available in 350 cities nationwide and is the preferred ridesharing service by drivers and passengers. Lyft is dedicated to creating positive change in every city they service.

InMotion originally invested in the Detroit-based digital carpool business, SPLT. SPLT works with Lyft in providing medical transport for non-emergencies. This sparked InMotion’s interest in Lyft.

InMotion plans to invest 25 million dollars in Lyft that will go to support expansion and technology plans. In addition, InMotion’s investment supply Lyft drivers with a number of Land Rover and Jaguar vehicles and will allow InMotion Ventures to test and develop their mobility services.

“We are excited to collaborate with a leading platform like Lyft not only on developing premium mobility solutions but also devising innovative solutions to the transport problems Jaguar Land Rover’s customers face,” Sebastian Peck, InMotion Managing Director, said. 

“Personal mobility and smart transportation is evolving and this new collaborative venture will provide a real-world platform helping us develop our connected and autonomous services.”

“This is a strategic investment for both parties as we focus on innovating new mobility solutions to our customers,” Hanno Kirner, Executive Director of Corporate and Strategy, said. “Collaborating with an expanding technology business like Lyft is going to help us both accelerate our ambitions.”

InMotion, powered by Jaguar Land Rover, is dedicated to investing in innovations that change the way we use transportation by investing in companies with high-growth in the mobility and smart transportation market.

In addition, InMotion works with Jaguar Land Rover business to create and develop new products that will contribute to an incredible unforgettable experience for new and existing Jaguar Land Rover customers.

Jaguar Land Rover is ‘Lighting up Lives’

Jaguar Land Rover is excited to announce their partnership with sustainability experts ClimateCare! Their goal is bring safe and clean solar technology to rural communities in Kenya. The program, titled ‘Lighting up Lives,’ specifically wants to target children and their education.

Many of the children in these communities can only work on their schoolwork during daylight hours because they have no access to any sort of electricity. With the implementation of the ‘Lighting up Lives’ program, children are able to complete their schoolwork and be able to spend more time looking upon the faces of their families.

Jaguar Land Rover believes that renewable solar powered energy is an affordable alternative to the use of kerosene light. Kerosene can create hazardous indoor pollutants which makes it one of the largest causes of premature death in all of Africa. Jaguar Land Rover believes that implementing ‘Lighting up Lives’ will improve the education in the children of the rural communities, which will then give women greater opportunities to learn and work, and the living conditions will be safer and healthier.

“This exciting new venture is exactly the type of program that Jaguar Land Rover wants to lead on in the future,” Helen McLintock, Jaguar Land Rover Director, said. “Using technology for good and supporting the power of engineering to improve lives and help to build a cleaner future. Our purpose is to make responsible business relevant to everyone. By sharing our skills, our technology, our people and our passions we can make a difference to people’s lives and prosperity.”

Jaguar Land Rover recently announced they would be moving to 100% renewable energy for its United Kingdom facilities. Following up with that announcement, Jaguar Land Rover has installed the largest array of rooftop solar panels in the United Kingdom at their Engine Manufacturing Center.

Jaguar Land Rover is striving to make the world a cleaner and more sustainable place to live. They believe in making a difference not just in their own community, but in communities all over the world.
