General Motors to cut yet more technologies in its upcoming cars

The world is gripped with the semiconductor crisis and this has forced many of the production plants of automobiles to be forcefully shut down. And due to the ongoing crisis, General Motors recently announced it will be dropping the wireless smartphone charging from its new SUVs. The company stated that the global microchip shortage has forced the company to cut off the technology.

It’s the latest feature to get the ax by the company due to the low supply of semiconductors. The news comes as a shock from GM, as the company has recently pulled the HD radio feature from some of its models, as well as with auto start-stop and a fuel management module.

The models of the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, and also the 2021 GMC Yukon models which will be made after July 12th will no longer feature a wireless charging pad. But the company also announced that certain 2022 Buick Enclaves, Chevy Traverses, and Cadillac XT5s and XT6s made after August 2nd will also have more features missing.

But the company promises that its buyers will get a $75 credit for making do with the missing wireless charging option. The company states that its new vehicles will come without the wireless charging pads and we cannot expect them to feature this technology any time soon.

“Our supply chain organization continues to make strides working with our supply base to mitigate the near-term impacts of the semiconductor situation. GM continues to leverage every available semiconductor to build and ship our most popular and in-demand products, including our highly profitable full-size trucks and SUVs for our customers. However, the semiconductor situation continues to remain fluid globally.”

The chip shortage is estimated to be very well carried on to next year as well, and many believe that we are still two years behind fixing the chip crisis.
