Dubai to deploy GM unit's autonomous vehicles in emirate from 2023 – Reuters

DUBAI, April 12 (Reuters) – Dubai has signed an agreement with General Motors Co's (GM.N) majority-owned Cruise self-driving car subsidiary to operate its autonomous vehicles in Dubai starting in 2023, Dubai's crown prince said on Monday.
The self-driving fleet will reach 4,000 vehicles by 2030, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum said on Twitter, adding that Dubai would be the first location outside the United States to operate self-driving vehicles.
By 2030, Dubai aims to cut transportation costs by 900 million dirhams annually and save 1.5 billion dirhams in reducing environmental pollution by 12% per year, while generating 18 billion dirhams annually in economic revenues by making the transport sector more efficient, Sheikh Hamdan said.
