During the 1939 World’s Fair, General Motors outlined a vision that would revolutionize the transportation industry and create a more efficient tomorrow.
In an exhibit called “Futurama,” GM first introduced Americans to the concept of highways designed to facilitate desirable journeys and better connect people by paving a pathway between cities and towns. Over the next few decades, these highways completely redefined mobility around the world.
Today, this concept of connection as well as the desire to take people to places they want to go remains at the core of GM’s vision for a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion.
As GM looks ahead to 2039, the company envisions the same interstate network – first presented 100 years prior – equipped with charging stations readily available to power all types of electric vehicles. These vehicles will be connected and capable of talking to one another, ultimately reducing congestion, helping keep people safe and leading to an emissions-free world.
