GM-Super-Cruise-expansion

General Motors has significantly expanded the reach of its hands-free driving technology, Super Cruise, now encompassing about 750,000 miles of compatible roads across the U.S. and Canada -- the largest truly hands-free operating domain in North America, nearly six times the coverage of its closest competitors.

"GM is all-in on safely deploying Super Cruise as we make the technology available on more vehicles, more roads and for more people to enjoy," said Anantha Kancherla, GM vice president of ADAS. "A key part of that is expanding the road network --in this case nearly doubling it again -- with LiDAR mapped highways. High precision LiDAR mapping gives us an operating domain where we are confident in Super Cruise’s abilities.”

Since its launch in 2017 as the industry's first true hands-free ADAS, Super Cruise has seen incremental expansions, the most recent of which extended the network to 400,000 miles. The latest extension includes not only divided highways and major highways but also minor highways that connect smaller cities and townships, enabling hands-free driving between more rural areas.

This expansion is particularly significant for those who enjoy recreational activities, as Super Cruise now includes trailering capability, a feature that is being added to models like the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse and 2024 GMC Acadia. More than 80% of surveyed owners with Super Cruise have reported it makes driving more relaxing, highlighting the technology's impact on enhancing the driving experience.

More than 160 million miles have been driven accident-free using Super Cruise. The technology's new or enhanced features include Lane Change on Demand, Automatic Lane Change, Enhanced Navigation and Collaborative Steering, among others.

The ongoing updates are being rolled out incrementally over-the-air at no additional charge and will continue through 2025.
