The General Motors Cruise Unit of General Motors has unveiled a model electric vehicle that does not have a steering wheel or pedals for use in its planned service of participatory self-driving.

 The car, named Cruise Origin, was developed in partnership with Japanese automaker Honda, which for $ 2.75 billion, acquired 5.7 percent of Cruise in 2018, in an attempt to catch up with its competitors in technology development at enormous costs and risks of not  Having any products ready to market.

 The car comes in the form of a minibus with three seats in each side facing each other, and Cruise has not disclosed details such as the capacity or cost of the battery, but claims that the family that lives in San Francisco and uses participatory transportation services will see a savings of $ 5,000 annually thanks to the car.

 Cruise CEO said: The box-sized SUV with sliding doors on each side will be used for the company's corporate transport service, but did not say when the new competitor, Lyft and Uber, will be launched.

 Cruise had a value of up to $ 19 billion in May, and in July GM postponed its plans to launch a commercial robotic taxi service by the end of 2019, saying: Cars needed more tests, and Cruise did not obtain a permit to test self-driving cars.  Without a safety driver in California.
