GM hit a few speed bumps in the past year: The Chevrolet Bolt EV, once a bestseller, slipped behind all three of Tesla’s electric cars in sales, while a brewing trade war with China threatened the automaker’s profits. Meanwhile, GM recorded a $3.9 billion loss in 2017, owing largely to the new U.S. tax law. Still, Barra is barreling ahead. She scored a $2.25 billion investment in autonomous-vehicle venture GM Cruise from the SoftBank Vision Fund and plans to deploy GM’s first self-driving cars for ride sharing in 2019.
