  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 11-8-2017 Former GM Vice Chairman of the Board, and long-time automotive executive, Bob Lutz, has weighed in on autonomous vehicles and his expectations of the future will give any truck owner chills. In a nutshell, Lutz predicts that automobile ownership will shift to ride-share companies like Uber and GM’s partner Lyft. Lutz predicts that the big tipping point will come when self-driving cars, which will be electric vehicles, by the way, make up 20% or so of the total U.S. fleet. Following that point of acceptance, the U.S. will legislate the end of private automobiles on public roads. Lutz says, "Everyone will have 5 years to get their car off the road..." This may seem like crazy talk, but coming from Lutz it gets us thinking hard about how he could be wrong. Certainly, in rural areas, private ownership will hang on longer, and contractors who use private vehicles will be the last to be pushed away from using their work vehicles for other purposes. Having shared the first part of the full story which Automotive News has begun to publish in sections with some of my colleagues, many good points were raised. One that really stuck in my head was from a friend who lives just outside of a major U.S. city with no public transportation from his town about 10 miles outside the city center, where he works. He said, “I am involved in a big artificial intelligence project at work and this guy’s predictions are definitely on target. In fact, his timeline may be a little conservative. I spend at least two hours a day commuting in my car and the time I spend driving is essentially wasted time. I’d much rather be in the backseat reading, watching the news or catching up on email.” The person who wrote that is not some Greenpeace activist living off the grid. He’s a guy I once knew to have the coolest and fastest Camaros I have ever seen. He drives normal everyday internal combustion cars and is ready for change. What say you GM-Trucks.com faithful? Give the article a read and poke holes in it if you think it is off-base.
