In 2015, General Motors’ most important goal was to distance itself from the ignition switch recall scandal that cast a pall over the historic brand for much of the previous year. They did that, and had a record sales year to boot, with total global sales of 9.8 million. For 2016, GM will look to continue staking it’s claim on a still growing US auto market. The company is also inching towards the release of automated cars, a development that could potentially change the game for GM and the auto industry all together within the next decade. At the top of the company, CEO Mary Barra continues to get rave reviews for her handling of times both good and bad, but her ultimate legacy could be how she leads the company into the ae of automation.
