Vehicles Will Become ‘Second Office’ by 2021, GM CEO Says

By Team Writer / December 26, 2016

Speaking with Business Insider, which curiously describes the vision of a mobile second office that would effectively end any pretense of a relaxing drive as “leisure time,” Barra said self-driving technology will lead to a drop in fatalities and ease congestion. Without driving, that opens up the ability for the motorist to focus on other things—like work.

Key Takeaways:

  • General Motors will eventually offer an autonomous version of its battery-electric Bolt, which it’s introducing for the 2017 model year, to Lyft for ride sharing.
  • People still need to get from point A to point B, and we believe autonomous will be a big part of it,” Barra told the outlet.
  • Autonomous cars will reduce traffic fatalities, help keep cars connected to their driving environment, and help them choose the most efficient route, Barra said.

“Most vehicles will become a “second office” in five years with the advent of autonomous vehicles, General Motors’ CEO Mary Barra told Business Insider.”
