Cruise Automation, the autonomous vehicle technology company now wholly owned by General Motors, has shared some of its first onboard footage of a completely self-driving 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. And it’s impressive.
We must say, though, the whole time we watched, we were waiting for the autonomous Bolt EV to slip up; we waited for it to blow through a light, approach a pedestrian too quickly, change lanes in an inappropriate manner. It never did.
Through the hustle and bustle of city traffic and pedestrians, the autonomous Bolt EV kept its composure, never putting its occupants or other drivers in danger. It’s truly quite remarkable to see.
General Motors will soon bring a fleet of autonomous Bolt EVs to Michigan for fall and winter testing and will begin manufacturing its next-generation of autonomous vehicles at the Orion assembly plant in the state, too.
