2017 Chevrolet Bolt Is Going To Bring Self-Driving Closer
There are many reasons why people love the Chevrolet Bolt. It offers up a lot of room in the cabin and it’s the first of the electric hatchbacks to not offer up a design that is silly. But what people like most about the vehicle is the fact that it is still self-driving.
GM does have concrete plans for the Chevrolet Bolt self-driving system and they want it to be the leader in the autonomous ride-sharing program with Lyft and Uber in partnership.
$500 million has been spent by GM from the start of the year and the company hasn’t been wasting any time in developing a Chevrolet Bolt that doesn’t need to be driven.
Their technology is called Super Cruise and they are continuing in the refinement of it, following the acquisition of Cruise Automation, just after making their huge investment.
We have heard that we may see the Chevrolet Bolt arrive early on next year, unlike all the other car makers, which have been at work on their self-driving vehicles for around a decade.
Pam Fletcher, the executive chief engineer said that the self-drive version of the Chevrolet Bolt is coming much closer and its arriving faster than people thought. This means that we might see the start of the ride-sharing program soon too.
At the moment we don’t have any word on when the autonomous driving features are going to arrive for the mass market.
But soon we may see the Chevrolet Bolt in competition with the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and the Nissan Leaf.
