We are moving fast in the autonomous driving space, following a two-pronged approach: the revolutionary path in driverless vehicle technology and the evolutionary path represented by driver assistance technology. Our vision is that autonomous vehicles can help lead to a safe, less congested future for all.


Better Accessibility

Safer Roads

Less Traffic

Why is GM committed to AVs?

We believe that autonomous vehicles will have enormous potential benefits for society in the form of increased safety and access to transportation. Since we believe that all AVs should be EVs, these efforts will clearly advance our vision of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, and help us build a more sustainable and accessible world.

  • Cruise AV

    Designed to reshape the world

    Meet the Cruise AV. Over 300 all-electric, autonomous Cruise AVs are testing on the streets of San Francisco during a five-year span to help transform ridesharing as well as deliveries.

    They have dealt with challenging urban conditions that are about 50 times more complex than those in suburban areas, learning quickly and accelerating their iteration.

    Cruise is now going commercial after receiving the first-ever Driverless Deployment Permit granted by the California Public Utilities Commission in June 2022.

    Innovating the future of driving

    Super Cruise™1

    While we are looking forward to the future of autonomous driving, we are also constantly exploring the practical significance of technological evolution.

    Super Cruise is an intelligent driver assistance technology that we developed to meet current driving needs.

    It innovatively integrates a driver-attention system with LiDAR map data, providing ease and convenience for driving on compatible roads like highways.

    Cadillac initially introduced Super Cruise on its CT6 flagship sedan in China. Thanks to the Vehicle Intelligence Platform (VIP), Super Cruise technology can be further updated over-the-air. By 2023, GM will have more than 20 models worldwide equipped with this technology.

    Vehicle to Everything (V2X)

    This is our exclusive "communication superhighway" for vehicles. It also provides a forward-looking path for autonomous driving development.

    V2X technology enables active vehicle-to-vehicle communication and human-vehicle-infrastructure interaction. With the help of sensors in vehicles, autonomous driving is expected to transform into the intelligent coordination of the entire transportation system.

    The Buick GL8 Avenir is one of the industry’s first mass production vehicles with V2X technology. With the full implementation of VIP, V2X will gradually become omnipresent.


    Six degrees of automation

    Six Degrees of Automation: 0

    No automation

    Zero autonomy; the driver performs all driving tasks.

    Six Degrees of Automation: 1

    Driver assistance

    Vehicle is controlled by the driver but driving assist features may be included in the vehicle design.

    Six Degrees of Automation: 2

    Partial automation

    Vehicle has combined automated functions, like acceleration and steering, but the driver must remain engaged with the driving task and monitor the environment at all times.

    Six Degrees of Automation: 3

    Conditional automation

    Driver is a necessity but is not required to monitor the environment. The driver must be ready to take control of the vehicle at all times with notice.

    Six Degrees of Automation: 4

    High automation

    The vehicle is capable of performing all driving functions under certain conditions. The driver may have the option to control the vehicle.

    Six Degrees of Automation: 5

    Full automation

    The vehicle is capable of performing all driving functions under all conditions. The driver may have the option to control the vehicle.
