Cruise, the self-driving subsidiary of General Motors, revealed its first vehicle to operate without a human driver, the Cruise Origin.

The vehicle, which lacks a steering wheel and pedals, is designed to be more spacious and passenger-friendly than typical self-driving cars.

Cruise says the electric vehicle will be deployed as part of a ride-hailing service, but declined to say when that might be. 

Here is an interesting look at the current state of the electric vehicle market with some cogent thoughts on the future of the internal combustion engine. It looks like 2023 could be an interesting year indeed.

I will add that, as I was recently in the market for a new car, I did not want to buy another gas powered sedan and a Tesla (or other EV) still seemed too expensive.
