"Even if they choose not to renew their Super Cruise plan, features like lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control will continue to function."

Looks like the feature you "rent" is the mapping for the car to navigate on its own vs. just using lane keeping and adaptive cruise and with regular nav. All the car does is get off at your exist so you are renting an expensive reminder to not miss your exit.

Telsa's connected services are $10 a month so $120 a year for $300 a year. Same is true there, it's mostly to get the mapping up dates.

Yes, but I would guess that Ford wouldn't allow you to pick up the subscription each summer when you're traveling and then cancel the rest of the year. I'm sure they'd have some kind of restrictions like minimum length contracts or something
Which is the reason I voted for a flat fee. I'd only be interested in a subscription when I would plan to use it.

I think the lidar mapping is necessary for the hands free part. Otherwise you get your basic ACC and lane keep with steering wheel nag

I can't stand this. Just price the cars properly and cut this crrap out. Make it part of an option pack right of front if they feel the need. No one likes to be nickled and dimed after the fact. Better yet, just include it in the base price of a car and move on.

Then people would complain they have no choice to get it or not. You can decline the connectivity charges on Tesla but you lose satellite mapping, Spotify and Netflix.

What are the subscriptions needed for the MachE?

The point was to relate the GM monthly fee to the MME handsfree, not to evaluate the supercruise itself. That is, paying for it as a monthly fee vs in full once.
My mistake. I prefer to pay once.

Hope this is in the right category.

GM announced their pricing for Supercruise which is after a 3 year trial.

I believe Ford hasn't announced their pricing yet. I personally like this subscription model because there is no guarantee that LIDAR mapping remains relevant in the upcoming years. We are still in the early stages of autonomous tech so it makes sense to me to pay a subscription for it.

Which would you guys prefer?
I don't think any car manufacturer should be nickle and diming anyone for a subscription for something that should be included in the price of the car already? Especially if its a luxury car priced $50k-$100K!

I kind of agree on that but we have to remember that given the fact that these systems need constant improvement and development over time, then a constant revenue from it helps keep developpers and engineers on the matter, that's the way you can receive OTA updates.
