GM’s Self-Driving ‘Super Cruise’ Rollout Pushed to 2017

GM’s rollout of its semi-autonomous ‘super cruise’ system has been pushed back to 2017. 

When it was initially announced, GM said that the system would launch in late 2016, but now it seems that developmental issues are delaying its release.

“Getting the technology right and doing it safely is most important, so the exact month of introduction cannot be announced at this time,” said GM. Further backing up the point, global product chief Mark Reuss told Automotive News that, “It will come out when it is ready.”

Super cruise will be able to drive the CT6 on the highway without human intervention in all types of traffic.

These delays highlight the challenges facing automakers when it comes to self-driving car technology. In a year-end report, a number of companies testing self-driving cars on California roads claimed that their car experienced thousands of failures that demanded human intervention to prevent collisions.
