GM Testing Autonomous Chevy Bolts On Streets Of San Francisco

A spy photographer has come across a fleet of all-electric Chevy Bolts in San Francisco today that appear to be equipped with arrays of self-driving sensors, a sign that GM is already testing the electric cars that could be ferrying Lyft passengers around without drivers sometime in the next year. These aren’t just any self-driving Bolts, though: behind the wheel of one of the cars is Kyle Vogt, co-founder of Cruise Automation, which GM recently acquired for a reported $1 billion. You might think that Vogt would be taking it easy after a transaction of that magnitude, but he’s apparently still active and engaged with the company — at least in real-world testing.
