e4 Mobility Alliance Goals
- Spread awareness of LA County as an Advanced Transportation Capital
- Leverage the region’s intellectual property, research and workforce training assets to grow the Advanced Transportation industry cluster
- Advocate for legislative agenda and public policy that foster growth of the industry cluster
- Develop and implement industry cluster growth strategy
Southern California has a significant cluster of EV companies including software, design studios, and full production sites that include passenger, shared mobility, truck, drayage and passenger bus vehicles. EV industry “clustering” is also supporting geographically concentrated growth in jobs, innovation and commerce, as suppliers and related businesses locate nearby. LAEDC’s e4 Mobility Alliance and integrated programs help the industry overcome challenges and connect with growth opportunities. Our B2B matches, impactful policy work, talent pipeline development and convenings nurture growth of this ecosystem.

About e4 Council Meetings
The e4 Mobility Alliance meets quarterly, with attendance open to the public, and serves as the convening platform for industry, government, education and other stakeholders who are collaborating to increase the strength of the advanced transportation ecosystem in Southern California. e4 meetings tackle current issues and opportunities, provide attendees with insights on the future of the industry, connections with new partners, and exchange of ideas with government leaders.
Attendee engagement advances the programs of e4 that assist and attract regional ZEV manufacturers and related EV infrastructure companies, and other local industry growth in autonomous vehicles, micro-mobility, ride sharing, car sharing and technologies that can be exported all over the world. Formed in 2010, e4 advances LA’s ability to address global climate change and creates a future-forward industry that will provide well-paying jobs and career pathways to provide more opportunity to the region’s residents.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Expanding opportunity for people of color and underrepresented communities in LA’s well-paying industries is a major focus for LAEDC. In the context of electric vehicles, air quality will improve dramatically in underserved neighborhoods if we put more zero-emission and electric vehicles on the road, a step towards environmental justice. Transportation access and shared car EVs are also priorities and LAEDC helps connect these solutions to underserved communities.
