Below is the text on Mary Barra’s comments on GM’s plans for an intelligent car: Thank you for that warm welcome. It’s a great pleasure to join you tonight. I know the dialogue at this congress is going to be provocative. And what you experience behind the wheel on Belle Isle – if you even touch a steering wheel while you’re there – will be jaw-dropping.
