Lab1886 is an incubator – we guide ideas within a system and prepare them for the future. Each vision is subjected to a stress test before we explore its potential. In short sprints, we develop new prototypes and pilot promising business models. An overview of our current project portfolio is available here.
The year 1886 represents a milestone in the history of mobility – the automobile is a disruptive invention that continues to change the world. Lab1886 links this legacy to the challenges of the future. For more than a decade, we have been developing innovative business models that go beyond cars. We generate ideas, accelerate them, and put them on the road – from car2go, to moovel and Mercedes-Benz energy storage. At Lab1886, the focus is on holistically rethinking mobility. We build groundbreaking business models and are always on the lookout for creative visionaries with an inventive spirit. Learn more
