1 Traces roots to 1908 Worldwide Employment: 213,000 2012 Worldwide Vehicle Sales: 9.3 million 2012 Global Vehicle Market: 11.5% 2012 Global Revenue: $152.3 billion 2012 Net Income: $4.9 billion GENERAL MOTORS COMPANY

2 Driving three sources of advanced technology  Internally developed  Externally from startups  Externally from established partners CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER

3 Take the BEST of what the OUTSIDE has to offer COMBINED with the BEST WE have to offer INNOVATION STRATEGY: DEVELOP, INVEST & PARTNER

4 R&D KEY TECHNOLOGY AREAS Manufacturing Technology – Technologies that advance efficiency and change the manufacturing paradigm Connected Vehicle – Technologies at the intersection of information and entertainment in the vehicle including HMI, speech recognition, cloud services, integration of personal devices, etc. Automotive Cleantech – Technologies related to vehicle propulsion, fuel economy, emissions, energy, etc. Advanced Materials – Materials that create mass efficiency, performance, cost and/or environmental benefits Sensors, Processors and Memory – Technologies that improve functionality or solve technical challenges like automated driving, advanced safety features, etc.
