GM and Honda unveil electric self-driving car with no steering wheel or pedals

by Matt McFarland, CNN Business, January 22, 2020


Highlights:

  • GM and Honda have engineered a new 6-seat electric vehicle, the Origin, that drives itself
  • The self-driving car isn’t for sale but is rather available for rides through a ride-share app
  • The six-seat electric vehicle has no steering wheel, brake or accelerator pedals, windshield wipers or rearview mirror. Its doors slide rather than swing open. There’s no obvious front or back, like a typical car.
  • The new car will need additional approval from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration due to its unique car components

Electric vehicles that offer ride-sharing through carpools are an important part of sustainable mobility.
