General Motors: Most vehicles to get over-the-air upgrade tech by 2023
General Motors said most of its global models will be capable of over-the-air software upgrades by 2023, as the automaker rolls out new vehicle systems designed to securely handle heavy data traffic and software downloads from the internet.
GM did not specify what vehicle systems and features would be open to over-the-air updates, but said the new system enables the adoption of functionality upgrades throughout the lifespan of the vehicle.
The new GM electronic systems will be capable of handling up to 4.5 terabytes of data processing power per hour, five times the capability of current GM vehicles, the company said in a statement.
The new GM electrical systems will be launched on the 2020 Cadillac CT5 sedan, which will be presented later this year.
