    If the competition is bankruptcy.
  • How does this jibe with VW *saying* it will prevail in the EV transition?

    Is it better to xay something than to say it?

    I prefer to see who does it.
  • Goody for them. Isn't this the company that introduced the "long range" affordable BEV before the Model 3 and manged to sell a whopping 75k in 4 years.
  • Two words. EV-1.
  • Which is more fake—their Hummer or their Badger?

    Two words Hummer EV.
  • Blockbuster and Kodak CEOs said the same thing at various times about their ability to dominate their industry after disruptive technology changes.

    The Kodak analogy is apt. Kodak had the first commercially viable digital camera. GM had the first commercially viable modern EV. Both squandered them.
  • I’ve never heard of a GM Cruise. I do know that the much vaunted Tesla killer duo Volt and Bolt both fizzled out. Hummer we just learned is CGI.

    It does sound that way though it has been in news a lot lately.

    "More Cars Getting GM's Super Cruise Automated Driving Setup. CR already ranked Super Cruise ahead of Tesla’s Autopilot in our tests. Now it’s getting more features and going on more cars."

  • I don’t know a single person that’s driven with super cruise, let alone owns a vehicle with it.
  • I’ve never seen something that links Cruise, LLC to Cadillac Super Cruise. Are they linked?
  • Flagged. Shouldn't be in model 3 forum.
  • I like the new word "xay". Based on the context, I'm guessing that it means "say" something and not mean it.
  • Ogay awayway ishevfay
  • Is this "winning" like how the Bolt beat the Model 3?
  • Some people say they are the leader, other prove it by math. I think we know who is who.
  • I researched it, deeply.
    GM does not even make a model called the Cruise. The Volt was actually a real model, but they had to stop making it. There is such a thing as a Bolt, but they are extremely rare. The Hummer EV is just computer pictures.
  • [email protected] Your deep research didn't include a Google search.

    The Cruise is a self driving test vehicle. It's not for sale so don't look for one in your Chevy showroom however it's based on the Bolt which you will find in your Chevy showroom. They've just got a license to operate them without a driver in San Fransisco. In terms of degree of difficulty what they are doing is way harder then what Waymo is doing. Waymo is limited to Phoenix, a city where it never rains, never snows, is built on a grid and is flat as a pancake. SF is nothing but steep hills, has rain and fog, and is generally a nightmare for human drivers, if they can operate a driverless car there without killing anyone that will be quite an achievement.
  • When Car and Driver do their long term test, then I’ll consider a GM Cruise.
  • On further review, calling a vehicle a GM Cruise is analogous to calling my car a Tesla FSD.
    Not a thing.
  • Taking a step back------isn't the elimination of ICE cars and the spread of electric car manufacturing to all car manufacturers around the world one of Elon's main goals. So much so that he doesn't protect Tesla's patents and has them out there for all to see and use. With that in mind isn't it only a matter of time before someone is able to produce a car with some features that may be better than some of Tesla's; and at some point maybe even produce a car that is better than Tesla. In either event, Elon's goal is coming true.

    In the meantime, Tesla owners get to enjoy a fantastic car (best I have ever owned-----beats the Cadilacs, Lexus', and BMW's we have owned over the decades), and take advantage of the very accessible charging station network.

    Oh course. I’d suggest that it has to be someone who is serious about EVs, though. Despite what they xay, GM doesn’t outwardly appear to be.
  • @mcmack15_98171493
    Musk absolutely can't do it alone, so other outfits will have to take up slack. Whether legacy makers can conceivably shift to substantial EV production without bankruptcy is a major question. These threads devolve into chum for the resident troll. Don't take it as being anti-EV, but there's a lot of history here with Tesla bashing coming out of GM, so turnabout is fair play.

  • I can’t figure out if there is any connection at all between Cruise LLC and Super Cruise. I think they are separate developments completely siloed.
