Honda and GM to test Cruise Origin drone in Japan – DRIVE

In the picture, Origin has already reached Tokyo (the main train station is visible on the left), but in reality, the prototype is still in America. The shuttle’s premiere took place a year ago, and the technical characteristics are still unknown. It is only clear that Origin is crammed with technology vice.

Honda announced that it will begin testing autonomous cars from a startup in Japan in 2021 with the assistance of General Motors Cruiseto be shipped from the USA. Honda Mobility Solutions, created in February 2020, shows the most interest in the shuttle Cruise Originbecause it is optimally suited for the upcoming MaaS (Mobility as a Service) services. They are stipulated in agreement with GM, signed by Honda in October 2018.

Robocars Cruise AV based on electric hatchback Chevrolet Bolt also sharpened their skis in Tokyo, although on February 14 debut updated Bolt and his crossover brother Bolt EUV.

Dan Ammann, head of Cruise, stressed that “the mission is not limited to the United States,” and the tests in Japan are “a small but symbolic step taken with Honda on the global journey.” Head of Honda Takahiro Hatigo got off with routine phrases about “new value for mobility” in everyday life, “serving people around the world” and accelerating the MaaS business. Note Nissan too wants launch drones in Japan, but with the participation Waymo… Toyota e-Palette shuttles reel kilometers at the training ground in Toyota City.
