Feb 20, 2023

10 biggest funding deals in autonomous vehicles in 2022 Henry Mathieu digs deep into the the biggest funding rounds in the self-driving car industry in 2022. Autinomous smart car inerior. Self driving at night city landscape. Display shows information about the vehicle is moving, GPS, travel time, scan distance Assistance app. Future concept Autonomous vehicle companies secured hundreds of millions of dollars in funding deals in 2022, but self-driving passenger cars were not at the top end of the deals. The major deals were made in robo-taxis, autonomous trucks and factory vehicles to alleviate persistent supply chain issues. Radar and sensing technology were also toward the top of the list along with some new development for autonomous aircraft. The future of self-driving vehicles is a very current discussion, so we took a closer look at the industry’s biggest deals over the last year. Inceptio Technology secures $188m in Series B+ venture funding Sequoia Capital China and Legend Capital provided the most illustrious individual deal in the autonomous vehicle industry in 2022 when it topped ups Inceptio Technology’s coffers with a cool $188m Series B+ round. The Chinese startup develops self-driving trucks. Inceptio Technology announced the deal in February 2022. In June, Inceptio partnered with Ambarell a, an AI semiconductor company, to deliver Level 3 automated driving – with Level 0 having no automation and Level 5 being fully autonomous. With this funding, Inceptio will continue to develop its self-driving system Xuanyuan. Volocopter secured $182m in second signing of Series E round The future of autonomous vehicles extends beyond ground travel. Air transport Volocopter is one of the companies innovating in the urban air mobility space. It cemented its spot in the industry by securing two funding rounds that made it to this list. Volocopter secured the second and bigger round in November 2022. That was when it announced the second signing of its Series E funding round. Saudi Arabian investor NEOM and Hong Kong-based GLY Capital Management backed the raise. “Attracting NEOM And GLy as investors is a great success and highlights our pole position in the commercial certification race,” Volocopter CEO Dirk Hoke said at the time. “This is the key requirement to launching commercial operations and starting to generate revenue.” Volocopter bagged $170m in first signing of Series E round Volocopter secured the first signing of its Series E round in March 2022. That round was worth $170m. South Korean investor WO Investment led the round, which propelled the German air-traffic startup’s valuation to $1.7bn. “We are confident that Volocopter will be among the first to bring UAM to cities globally, since seeing its aircraft fly in Seoul last yeae,” Lei Wang, chairman of WP Investment, said at the time. “As a leader in ESG investment, we are excited to empower city sustainability through Volocopter.” Nanjing Core Semiconductor Technology raises $139.32m in Series B+ funding Nanjing Core Semiconductor Technology secured $139.32m in a Series B+ round in 2022. The China-based company specialises in intelligent driving chips for cars and already serves over 260 customers, according to Techloy . Several different companies contributed to this financing such as SAIC Goldstone Innovation Industry Fund and Shanghai Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park Development. Nanjing Core Semiconductor Technology claimed it will use the money “to improve the core technology of Xinchi, iteratively update the chip products of car specifications, strengthen the large-scale mass production and service capabilities, and accelerate the wider application of Xinqi products.” Superpedestrian secures $125m in venture funding E-scooter company Superpedestrian bagged a $125m funding round in a 2022 deal.

The autonomous vehicle firm bagged $83m in January in a financing roundled by Mirai Creation Fund II. “With this initial Series C funding, our latest group of global strategic investment partners will enable us to rapidly deploy our technology on Toyota’s autonomous-ready platforms, including the Sienna Autono-MaaS,” Olson said at the time. Chinese robotics company VisionNav secures $75.64m in Series C+ financing VisionNav, the company based in China which specialises in autonomous full-stack vehicles and forklifts, received CNY 500m (75.64m) in April last year. That was one of the biggest deals in the autonomous vehicle industry in 2022. Meituan and 5Y Capital co-led the raise. VisionNav said it would use the capital to invest in R&D and growing the company. This round of funding valued VisionNav at over $500m, according to TechCrunch .
