GM Completes Test Track for self driving cars

on February 18, 2021

Following an investment of $170 million in May 2019, the new test track for autonomous vehicles and advanced technologies built by General Motors near its Oshawa assembly plant is now open.

Engineers at the Canadian Technical Centre (CTC) can officially begin putting their “code-to-the-road” – right here in Canada – on the newly completed CTC McLaughlin Advanced Technology Track (CTC MATT)

Featuring an oval-shaped design for continuous driving and four lanes with speeds ranging from 60-100 km/hour, the CTC MATT will support the testing of advanced General Motors vehicle software and technologies that will enable a future vision that is self-driven, all-electric, and highly connected.

“Canada has become the ideal place for GM to expand its engineering work for the future – and the opening of the CTC McLaughlin Advanced Technology Track will take that work even further,” said Scott Bell, GM Canada president and managing director. “We’re excited for the next big step forward in advanced technology development and testing – right here in Oshawa.”

While the track is now operational internally, an official grand opening event with external audiences is being planned for early spring, pending COVID-19 restrictions.
