General Motors has announced investments totaling more than $100 million to upgrade two self-driving manufacturing plants in Mich.

“We’re continuing to make great progress on our plans to commercialize in 2019,” said GM President Dan Ammann. “Our Orion and Brownstown teams have proven experience in building high-quality self-driving test vehicles and battery packs, so they are well-prepared to produce the Cruise AV.”

Both production facilities will build the 2019-bound, fourth-generation Cruise AV, GM’s inaugural self-driving vehicle, along with roof module production comprising of LiDar, sensors, and cameras. Other models produced at the Orion plant include the Chevrolet Bolt EV and the Sonic.

To date, more than 200 Cruise AV test vehicles have been built, which have conducted trial runs throughout the country. GM’s goal is to introduce a commercial ride-sharing fleet by 2019 in urban areas with requests made using a smartphone app.

Significant efforts by GM have also focused on regulatory reform. This year, it filed a petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to alter 16 instances of federal safety regulation language to allow cars without steering wheels and pedals to operate, citing its emphasis on human driver-engineered vehicles. One example is a request for a passenger-side airbag instead of today’s required steering-wheel airbags.

As of this writing, the Cruise AV can deploy in seven states, including but not limited to Michigan, Texas, and Nevada. A decision by the NHTSA has yet to be made.
