Automakers spotlight shift to mobile, driverless tech

LAS VEGAS -- It is car companies that are likely to steal the show at an electronics expo that opened here Wednesday, with their technology-driven visions to reshape an industry contending with the rise of ride- and car-sharing services.

The American automaker seeks to offer such transportation services as taxis and car-sharing, marking a move away from selling new vehicles and into using ones already on the road.
