I just can't believe Ford and GM are completely giving up on cars. I don't doubt they want to dominate an autonomous taxi future -- but they HAVE to hedge that bet. My guess would be that they might put cars on hold for a year or two, .. until they get production shifted to China and Mexico .... then they'll be ready to sell their latest "not yet quite ready for autonomy" Chinese/Mexican-built cars to the North America residing citizens of the world. This has been their m.o. in the past -- there is always some sort of self manufactured ""crisis"" that requires shuttering of U.S. plants, meanwhile, the 'out of country $1.50/hr we don't need no stinking EPA unions are illegal' plants just keep popping up/ expanding. Not to go all political -- but this is why Trump got elected. The battle is raging --- Nationalism vs Globalism.
