Fear not driving enthusiasts: Self-driving cars will not necessarily mean the end of enjoyable driving machines — at least, so far as Cadillac is concerned.
“Autonomous driving and driving passion must co-exist,” Cadillac CEO Johan de Nysschen said at the 2015 J.D. Power Roundtable Monday night. He went on to promise that Cadillac will combat the “nightmare scenario” where “a robot transports us from one point to the next” thereby taking “all the fun and joy out of driving.”
This pronouncement should come as music to the ears of those that feared self-driving bubble-cars like Google’s autonomous prototype would reign supreme on the roadways of the future, sucking all the fun out of personal mobility.
