General Motors

We envision a future of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, and we have committed ourselves to leading the way toward this future. General Motors has been pushing the limits of transportation and technology for over 100 years. Today, we are in the midst of a transportation revolution. And we have the ambition, the talent and the technology to realize the safer, better and more sustainable world we want. As an open, inclusive company, we’re also creating an environment where everyone feels welcomed and valued for who they are. One team, where all ideas are considered and heard, where everyone can contribute to their fullest potential, with a culture based in respect, integrity, accountability and equality. Our team brings wide-ranging perspectives and experiences to solving the complex transportation challenges of today and tomorrow. At General Motors, innovation is our north star. As the first automotive company to mass-produce an affordable electric car, and the first to develop an electric starter and air bags, GM has always pushed the limits of engineering. We are General Motors. We transformed how the world moved through the last century. And we’re determined to do it again as we redefine mobility to serve our customers and shareholders and solve societal challenges.
