General Motors is putting Cruise Automation to work. The company, bought out by GM recently, once called the city by the bay home, and fruits of its labor were spied on public streets.
Autoblog reports on autonomous Chevrolet Bolt EV sightings in San Francisco, California, coupled with a more production ready Bolt EV. The autonomous variant can be seen slathered up in camouflage, and complete with driving sensors on the outside.
It’s likely all a precursor to GM’s partnership with ride-sharing service, Lyft, which the automaker invested $500 million into to advance autonomous driving technologies. GM stated it plans a fleet of self-driving Chevrolet Volts through Lyft, and the Bolt EV is an easy next step.
We don’t know when a true driverless Bolt EV will arrive, but judging by the climate, it’s coming sooner rather than later.
