GM Ride-Sharing Cars Would Have No Steering Wheel Or Pedals
General Motors is asking the federal government to allow the carmaker to launch a self-driving vehicle without a steering wheel next year.

The electric Cruise AV is designed to operate on its own and is planned to be on the road by next year.
