GM and Cruise are still reluctant to put any specific timeframes on their plans for self-driving vehicle deployment, but the company is getting a bit more specific about its intent to bring self-driving to market. It wants to do so only when it can manage it safely, at scale, and in busy urban markets where it’ll have the largest impact, according to GM President Dan Ammann – and while major hurdles remain in terms of being able to technically achieve that, he says we should think about it in terms of “quarters, not years.”

That’s a statement he made in reference to achieving the company’s goals of launching commercially, and doing at a scale where it becomes “a really significant percentage of how people get around,” citing the fact that even today ride sharing in general accounts for a relatively small percentage of overall transportation and car use. GM and Cruise want to change that with automated driving – and deliver it through use of fully electric cars exclusively, too.
