Thirty Thousand Feet, Zero, October discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
We thank you for tuning into tomorrow. I'm dave crave line before we went to the break we were hearing from mary. Barra chairman and ceo of general motors as well as some of her team about where transportation is headed into tomorrow. We last heard about updates to gmc's original electric vehicle. The chevrolet volt well. Now members of gm's design and engineering teams joined in on the keynote address to introduce us to a few of their other all electric vehicles. A great deal has been said about the gmc hummer ev. Since it was first unveiled in. October the irony of introducing hummer is. An easy is not lost on us. This vehicle is the clearest articulation of exactly what we mean when we say any vehicle can be an easy. This is the world's first all electric supertruck. Gmc how murray will be capable of zero to sixty in about three seconds with a thousand horsepower and eleven thousand five hundred pound feet of torque. It has a crazy amount of power. It celebrates the performance possibilities of electric propulsion. This is a truck you on a drive because it delivers performance in a way that no other truck can match and a happens to zero emissions. Two things in particular. I share with you that we haven't really talked about before terrain mode one pedal driving in the bose electric vehicle sound enhancement technology in terrain mode the gmc hungary offers one pedal driving for precision handling at low speeds routing and rock crawling. It combines the fine control of the immediate torque provided by the propulsion system and the friction brakes to deliver a level of modulation that is beyond anything. We could deliver from gas or diesel powered engine. It is a smooth experience providing finally power control that can dominate the most difficult terrain. If you will love the power off road wait until you try it on road watts of freedom mode builds an entire experience around that zero to sixty sprint. The double press of the traction control button triggers a request to acknowledge you were about to do something. Special acknowledgment causes the vehicle to lower in the battery electronics. Temperatures to be optimized in preparation for full power delivery. The driver coach tells you to apply the brake as the seat and the sub woofers start to shake then you apply the accelerator and once you reach the required levels. You let the break. Oh hold on. I've experienced the thrill of jumping out of a plane. Thirty thousand feet. In my opinion. This is better. But how do you create the sensory explosion to accompany. Motors turned up to eleven. We worked with boz boz electric vehicle sound enhancement. Technology makes its debut in the gmc incorporates. Guitar riffs high frequency feedback and inspiration from formula motor to communicate the sensation of power. And torque that you've unlocked and wants to freedom is a truly immersive sensory experience. Brings you in direct contact with your vehicle. And we can't wait to share it with you later this year. If the gmc is power dominance the cadillac lyric is the artful integration of technology for most intimate driving experience introducing our new face of cadillac. The lyric is an uncompromising suv the embodiment of cadillac innovation and a showcase of technologies. You'll see repeated over future cadillac vs. We took advantage of the quiet. That comes with altium powered to curate an entirely new sensory experience and the inspiration of vip's electrical bandwidth to reimagine what it means to be connected to your vehicle. It starts as you approach the cadillac. Lyric layer of technology and choreography of light. That draws you inside and makes us very intimately your vehicle recognizing its driver. The lyric prepares the cabin for the journey. Continues that rhythm of light from the exterior to the interior. Once you're inside you understand what we mean. By artful integration the curved three three inch diagonal led display provides a customizable user interface with the capability to display one billion colors. We worked with territory studios and right point to companies with unique experience and creative strategy design and technology to help challenge expectations and bring cadillacs vision to life. And while we've announced that the gmc hummer e will leverage epic games unreal. Engine us to make fortnight and this keynote we can announce that we will also be using the technology and the cadillac lyric to bring display information to life and engaging three d. perspective that learning technology continues into the dual plane augmented reality heads up display that incorporates navigation directly into your field of view and combined with our next generation supercrew driver assistant technology helps provide confidence in control. My role general motors is lead designer for choreographed experiences. In addition to cadillac lighting that role did not exist before electric vehicle design opportunity to rethink our relationship with our vehicles. Now it signals a new future for the interaction of technology and the senses if the cadillac lyric is the new face of cadillac innovation. I want to introduce its ultimate expression. The all new cadillac. Celeste iq working on the cadillacs. Elastic is a designer's dream. The architecture the altium platform carved out new space and gave us the freedom to integrate more technology. The result is a dramatic presence with the low profile and railway proportions each vehicle offers a curated selection of materials which are crafted by hand for the ultimate luxury experience and with all wheel drive four wheel steering and a full glass roof. It's celebrates the extraordinary cadillac. Elastic extends the are full. Integration of technology. You already saw in the lyric but reaches new heights. That roof will be our first to feature four quadrant. Suspended particle device smart glass allowing each occupant of the vehicle to set their own level of transparency while the ten of the glass colors to match the ambiance and the mood of the interior that equal an individual experience for each occupant will be a signature aspect of the cadillac celestica. The driver and front seat passenger enjoy a pillar to pillar display. That brings the outside inside while rear seat. Passengers have personalized entertainment screens. With active privacy and council screens that separate individualized comfort settings from entertainment displays to minimize distractions. Cadillacs elastic represents the are full. Integration of technology to reimagine what it means to be a passenger. We can't wait to reveal more morrison. Mary barra by talking about their excitement about the future of electric vehicles.
