General Motors Co. (GM) on Monday unveiled a new all-electronic platform to enhance safety, information, entertainment and connectivity in its new models.

The new platform, which debuted in the 2020 Cadillac CT5 sedan, will go into production later this year and should be featured in most GM vehicles by 2023, the company said.

The new system features expanded capacity for over-the-air software updates, and offers more rapid communications within the vehicle itself and to outside sources, the company said.

The auto maker also said the new system offers additional cybersecurity protections in both the hardware and software.

"The critical role of software and its importance to our vehicles, both now and for years to come, cannot be overstated," said Mark Reuss, president of GM. "Our new digital vehicle platform and its eventual successors will underpin all our future innovations across a wide range of technological advancements, including EVs and expanded automated driving."
