GM's Super Cruise Network Expands to 750,000 Hands-Free Miles in North America

GM’s Super Cruise Network Expands Boundaries

  • GM’s Super Cruise network grows to 750,000 miles of hands-free driving routes in North America
  • Expansion nearly doubles the size of the original network, making it the largest in the industry
  • Super Cruise offers true hands-free driving and trailing capabilities with the ADAS feature
  • High-precision LiDAR mapping provides confidence in Super Cruise’s abilities
  • Expansion continues daily with plans to add more routes through 2025

General Motors (GM) has recently announced a significant expansion of its hands-free driving network in North America. With this addition, GM now boasts the most extensive hands-free driving routes in the industry, covering 750,000 miles and spanning across the continent.

Super Cruise, GM’s hands-free driving technology launched in 2017, utilizes adaptive cruise control technology, car-connected services, and LiDAR-enabled map data to manage acceleration, braking, and automated lane changes on compatible roads. The system has proven to be safe, with GM reporting over 160 million miles driven using Super Cruise, including zero accidents.

A Quantum Leap Across North America

This new expansion has nearly doubled the mileage of available hands-free routes since August 2022, now covering a substantial portion of the eastern United States. According to GM, the 750,000 miles of hands-free routes are equal to a one-way trip to the Moon or a round trip between New York City and San Francisco approximately 130 times.

As a result, GM’s Super Cruise network is the largest of its kind, offering true hands-free driving and trailing capabilities through its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) feature. Anantha Kancherla, GM’s Vice President of ADAS, shared his thoughts on the recent milestone:

“We are committed to safely deploying Super Cruise as we roll out the technology on more vehicles, roads, and for more people to experience. Expanding the road network, in this case nearly doubling it again, with high-precision LiDAR-mapped highways, is essential to our strategy. This high-precision LiDAR mapping provides us with an operating domain where we have confidence in Super Cruise’s capabilities.”

In addition to the recent expansion, GM continues to add major and minor highways to the Super Cruise network daily, with plans to make new routes available to drivers through 2025. The majority of Super Cruise-equipped GM electric vehicles (EVs) will receive this update, with the exception of the Chevy Bolt EUV.
