Cruise AutomationGeneral Motors' first fully autonomous car will be electric, available to just about anyone, and it could be here before you know it.
The company plans to bring its self-driving cars to the masses by launching its first driverless on the Lyft platform, Pam Fletcher, executive chief engineer of autonomous tech at GM, told Tech Insider.
Fletcher, who formerly served as GM's executive chief engineer for electric vehicles, said the company's first autonomous car would also be electric.
GM, of course, is making a big push into the electric car market with the launch of the BoltEV, a fully electric, long-range vehicle slated to roll out later this year.
In March, GM announced it was buying the self-driving car startup Cruise Automation to help strengthen its autonomous efforts and in May it was revealed that Cruise was testing its self-driving tech on the Bolt.
