GM is already testing self-driving Chevy Bolts

That did not take lengthy. Simply weeks after GM purchased Cruise Automation to offer its self-driving automotive initiative a lift, the spy photographers at SpiedBilde have noticed a number of Chevy Bolts roaming round San Francisco with autonomous driving sensors on their roofs. In reality, one of many drivers is Cruise Automation co-founder Kyle Vogt — clearly, he is taking the arms-on strategy on this collaboration.

GM would not remark when The Verge requested concerning the testing. Nevertheless, the pictures recommend that the automaker is not ready for Lyft earlier than it begins testing its very best combo of an electrical automotive with self-driving know-how. The corporate sees self-driving automobiles (particularly EVs) as essential to its future, and it doubtless needs to grasp the basics of driverless tech in its automobiles earlier than it begins integrating with ridesharing providers.
