“The expansion of Super Cruise and V2X communications technology demonstrates Cadillac’s commitment to innovation, and to making customers’ lives better,” said Mark Reuss, GM Executive Vice President of Global Product Development. “GM is just as committed to ushering in a new era of personal transportation, and technologies like these will enable it.”
