You may think that Cadillac is going to be exclusively having all the fun with the Super Cruise autonomous driving technology in the upcoming 2017 model-year CT6 and 2017 CTS. And for a little while that will be true, but General Motors has made it official that it will add a fleet of 2017 Chevrolet Volts with autonomous driving technology to drive around the campus of the Warren Technical Center. Notably, Chevrolet is currently launching the all-new, 2016 Volt.
To use an autonomous 2017 Volt, GM employees will reserve a Volt using a car-sharing app, then select a destination (presumably within the confines of the Tech Center). The autonomous technology in these 2017 Volts will bring the passenger to the desired destination and park. GM aims for the program to serve as a rapid-development laboratory to provide data and lessons to accelerate the company’s technical capabilities in autonomous vehicles.
GM has been testing its Super Cruise autonomous driving technology since 2012. It’s still vague on whether or not this autonomous driving technology will actually make it into production 2017 Chevrolet Volts or beyond.
