There’s arguably never been a more disruptive time in the auto sector and we are embracing and driving the change. We’re shifting from automaker to global mobility solutions provider and taking advantage of our vehicle and connectivity expertise to develop new services that help make customers’ lives easier.
We’re connecting vehicles and people to technology that helps improve safety, relieve congestion and increase fuel efficiency. Our urban mobility strategy – consisting of a variety of investments, programs and partnerships – addresses transportation challenges in crowded cities and enables us to meet changing needs around the world.
In the United States, we offer the Let’s Drive NYC car-sharing program with Stonehenge apartment properties in Manhattan, using access to mobility as an amenity. Our CarUnity peer-to-peer car-sharing in Germany enables people to offer their car for rental or to rent a car easily through an app through Opel dealers, creating critical mass and reliability. And on the campus of Jiao Tong University in China, we’re looking at trip patterns of our Chevrolet EN-V 2.0 electric vehicles integrated within a multi-modal transportation system.
We use our global Technical Center in Michigan as a rapid-development lab providing data and lessons to accelerate our progress in autonomous, electrified and connected vehicle technology. We see the future of personal mobility as a spectrum of these solutions. From employee bike and car sharing today to adding a fleet of autonomous 2017 Chevrolet Volts to the campus in 2017, our integrated approach will transform the auto industry as we know it today.
Some of this technology will be hitting the streets shortly. We’re launching “Super Cruise” semi-autonomous technology, available in the 2017 Cadillac CT6, and vehicle-to-vehicle technology on the 2017 Cadillac CTS.
