The electric automobile can and will provide a cleaner form of transportation then anything before it!
Cash for Cars Supports A Cleaner Energy
California’s Silicon Valley may be the face of self-driving cars in the U.S., but the first state to pass comprehensive autonomous vehicle regulations lies about 2,400 miles to the east. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed the SAVE Act legislation into law last week, and one automaker is already taking advantage.
General Motors announced today that it will begin autonomous vehicle production in The Wolverine State next year. Hence, starting with a fleet of self-driving Chevrolet Bolt EVs. Testing is already underway around the brand’s Technical Center campus in Warren. Thus, after the holiday season subsides, the next generation of driverless vehicles will hit the streets, packing Lidar sensors, cameras, and a bevy of other autonomous hardware. According to GM, the future is just around the corner.
Nothing like the old cars but better in ways we never dreamed of back in the day
“Revolutionizing transportation for our customers while improving safety on roads is the goal of our autonomous vehicle technology, and today’s announcement gets us one step closer to making this vision a reality,” said General Motors CEO Mary Barra. “Our autonomous technology will be reliable and safe, as customers have come to expect from any of our vehicles.”
Silicon Valley, which is either blessed or cursed with perpetual summer depending on your perspective. Michigan’s weather can be a tad more harsh. This presents unique challenges and opportunities for GM. The driverless cars can struggle in low-visibility conditions like snow or ice. The company currently has more than 40 self-driving cars. The testing is around San Francisco and Scottsdale, Arizona, but that number is sure to grow.
In addition to permitting autonomous vehicle testing and development. The SAVE Act establishes guidelines for the eventual sale of driverless cars. Thus, enables automakers to launch automated ridesharing services. The SAVE Act is also responsible for the newly christened Michigan Council on Future Mobility, which will propose industry standard policies. And monitor connected vehicle networks, and determine how traffic data will be best utilized moving forward.
