Look Ma, No Steering Wheel… Self-Driving Cars Are Coming To San Francisco

Cruise autonomous cars

Cruise plans to launch the service gradually with a fleet of just 30 cars. The first robotaxis will be modified versions of GM’s Chevrolet Bolt. However, the company is seeking approval to get its custom-built Cruise Origin on public roads. The autonomous electric vehicle has no steering wheel or pedals and can attain highway speeds. The car’s roomy interior is fitted with seats that face each other.


San Francisco residents may notice something missing the next time they hail a taxi — no driver at the wheel. On June 2, 2022, Cruise, a division of General Motors (GM), was approved to charge for rides in its autonomous cars. Waymo, owned by Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has been offering a similar service in Chandler, Arizona, since October 2020. However, Cruise is the first company allowed to operate commercial driverless cars in a major US city.
