GM to Triple the Super Cruise Road Network in Canada
General Motors announced that Super Cruise will soon be expanded so that it works on more roads, giving customers greater accessibility to hands-free driving. The Super Cruise road network across Canada and the U.S. will double, adding hundreds of thousands of additional kilometres of roads that can be explored hands-free.
In Canada, the number of compatible roadways will more than triple, from approximately 24,000 kilometres today to almost 80,000 kilometres. Some of the routes with large sections coming online with the expansion include:
- Trans-Canada Highway
- The Mother Road – U.S. Route 66
- Overseas Highway – U.S. Route 1
For new vehicles in the GM portfolio built on the VIP electrical architecture, the expansion will be available later this year and will be delivered at no additional charge, over-the-air starting in 2022 on Super Cruise-equipped models.
“GM is all in when it comes to accessible advanced driver assistance technology. We are adding Super Cruise to more vehicles than ever, and on more roads for more customers to experience,” said Mario Maiorana, GM chief engineer, Super Cruise. “We are pursuing what we believe to be the most comprehensive path to autonomy in the industry with responsible deployment of automated driving technology like Super Cruise at the core of what we do.”
