General Motors will equip all new Cadillac models and most new Buick and Chevrolet cars in China with 5G connectivity from 2022, as the country accelerates the deployment of 5G networks that enable emerging technologies like autonomous driving, according to a report by CNBC.

Speaking at the automaker’s Tech Day event on Wednesday, GM China president Julian Blissett said that the upcoming upgrade will provide faster connectivity for remote or over-the-air updates as well as communication with other connected vehicles and infrastructure, CNBC reported.

Bullish on 5G technology’s features including stronger data transmission capability, more stable connectivity and shorter response time, global carmakers are doubling down on the development of 5G-based vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication technology that can enable vehicles to better interact with their surroundings.

GM has announced plans to launch its first global V2X program this year in China with the Buick GL8 MPV minivan as part of efforts to ride the wave of the ongoing smart transportation revolution.
