California regulators have shot down what appeared to have been a very ill-advised plan to let self-driving car manufacturers dodge liability for crashes if the cars weren’t maintained to industry-written specifications, the Associated Press reported.

An anonymous tipster shared a photo of a Cadillac CT6, outfitted with autonomous driving sensors and scanners, which they spotted parked in Pittsburgh yesterday.
General Motors announced today that the new Cadillac CT6 will include a “Super Cruise” feature—described by the company as “the industry’s first true hands-free driving technology for the highway.” The technology is similar to Tesla’s Autopilot feature that lets people take their hands off the wheel when they’re…
Uber is partnering with the car-sharing service Maven (which is owned and operated by General Motors) to let Uber drivers rent GM vehicles on a weekly basis. The business will cost drivers $179 plus taxes and fees, and driver will not incur any extra fees for using the car for personal use.
If you own a GM vehicle from 2014-2017, listen up: General Motors is recalling nearly 4.3 million vehicles worldwide after discovering a software defect that prevents air bags from deploying during a crash.

For the past two decades, the number of genetically-modified crops has been steadily skyrocketing around the globe. Until 2015, when the number saw its first recorded drop. What’s going on?
Want to drive for Lyft but lack the fundamental car? No problem: GM will now rent out a Chevy Equinox for you to use, which will cost between $100 per week or nothing at all if you clock up enough Lyft journeys in the vehicle.
Want a car for an hour or two? Normally you’d turn to Zipcar, but now General Motors has announced an alternative car sharing scheme that it’s calling Maven.
Do not adjust your monitor: this lime is weirdly red on the inside. In fact, the fruit is genetically engineered to create proteins that provide the color, as well as potentially making the lime more health-giving.
Detroit is more than a little worried about the tech-centric future of automobiles, namely the ones that drive themselves. So it’s no surprise that GM is investing $500 million in Lyft to build a network of autonomous cars. Why not just buy the whole company?!
After decades of indecision, the Food and Drug Administration has finally approved its first genetically modified animal as safe to eat. Welcome a fast-growing GM Atlantic Salmon to your plate.
The first time I saw CarPlay in action, I couldn’t believe it. You could plug your iPhone into the infotainment system and then get iOS on your dashboard?! It seemed like Apple finally found a way to turn an automobile into a rolling computer like Knight Rider.
When I watched some security researchers hack into several cars without even touching them, my head exploded a little bit.
It's a terrifying moment the first time a parent hands over the keys to the family car to their teenager.

American car design reached its experimental, optimistic zenith in the post-WWII era. Yet for every car built, hundreds of sketches and concepts were destroyed, the designers who penned them working in corporate anonymity. This new documentary works to bring these aging designers and their beautiful concept work back…
A decade ago, you'd assume that the idiot on the highway in front of you weaving back and forth across the yellow lines was drunk. Today, there's a pretty good chance that they're just trying to navigate some particularly complicated emoji. GM wants to stop the madness, and it's betting on eye-tracking to do so.
Wood scientists just announced an exciting breakthrough in tree research. They've come up with a way to make more environmentally friendly paper—by genetically modifying trees. And it's not just the paper industry that will benefit.
