GM to release no steering wheel cars in 2019

GM plans to release cars with no steering wheel in 2019

"The company describes it as "the first production-ready vehicle built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver, steering wheel, pedals or manual controls."




Shame it's not as "futuristic-looking" on the outside as it sounds.

They should do something snazzy with the seat arrangement, like flip them around or just line the sides with benches. Looking ahead while you're driving is so 2016

The insipid beach house in the clip is awful, for that reason I hope it fails.

Re: GM to release no steering wheel cars in 2019

Yay.

No more need for a driver's license. Car insurance will CRASH because accidents will be fewer and the responsibility will likely fall on the manufacturer's shoulders. Clumsy cunts will be able to text without killing people...

It's all good. Nothing dystopian about this, you tinfoilers...

Re: GM to release no steering wheel cars in 2019

I guess it s getting late for me. I read the title "No Steering Wheelchairs". I thought ya, that might be safer for everyone but the wheel chair person.... I thought... hmm maybe they designed it for quadriplegics.

Re: GM to release no steering wheel cars in 2019

This kinda thing coming from everyone else is why I'm sure my next car is going to be a Mazda. I get that I'm in the apparent minority here, but I want to drive. I LIKE driving, And Mazda is the only company making affordable cars that has explicitly said it gets that.

+1

Yeah, I like a big block engine where you can imagine the physical sensation of fuel rushing through the
lines as you put the pedal to the metal. The ruckus going on, the noise and vibrations, tires screeching, and the smell of gasoline and burnt rubber. Then, later, the clanking of the exhaust pipes as they cool down.

And with an electric car, you - at best - get quietly pushed in your seat. And with this contraption, itíll be the soulless joy of efficiently getting from A to B. Itís like eating a salad for dinner. You know, the one with sauce on the side and easy on the low fat cottage cheese.

I don't think I've ever mentioned it here, but I also despise using public transportation. I used it for two years to get to college before I had a car, hated my schedule being dependent upon it every second. Granted, I live in California, and we have notoriously weak public transportation.

You donít have public transportation, thatís why you hated it. Itís at best a fig leaf in an otherwise entirely car focused transportation system.

I went to college in Germany and it was reasonably convenient. Take the train into the city, switch to the subway and it took almost as little time as taking the car. And it was almost free for students.
