They will roam in a 5-square-mile section of lower Manhattan. Still an operator will sit behind the steering wheel just in case but Cruise Automation, that developed the software, hopes to learn from the more aggressive drivers and adverse weather conditions that make New York so different from San Francisco, where GM also operates driverless Bolts.

Andy Palmer, Al Gore

Andy-Palmer-Nissan“In 2040 there won’t be a pure combustion car, because hybridisation and plug-in hybridisation will be there with room to spare. I genuinely believe plug-in hybrids will represent 40% of the mix even by 2030, so this 2040 ban would be late.”

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer shares his thoughts about the UK’s plans to ban petrol and diesel cars from 2040, pointing out that the new legislation would have no effect on future trends anyway.
