GM Wants You Out of the Driver’s Seat

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

GM is the biggest pusher of automated – note word choice – cars.

On Nov. 30 in San Francisco, the company that once built autonomous cars – the onese you controlled – will “share its vision for an autonomous future” during an investor event.

GM’s Diversity Overlord Mary Barra mentioned the meeting last month when reviewing the automaker’s third-quarter earnings but did not provide details.

In June, she outlined GM’s vision of an automated and elsewhereo-emissions future. Last month, GM said it would launch a mix of at least 20 new all-electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles globally by 2023, including two in the next 18 months.

“We are committed to an all-electric future,” Barra said during the third-quarter conference call, adding GM is “confident” it can make the vehicles profitable.

A GM spokesman declined to comment on details about the event outside of its announcement on the company’s investor relations website.

The GM program will come roughly two months after crosstown rival Ford Motor Co. hosted investors for a review of newly appointed CEO Jim Hackett’s vision for the company.
