Chevy Adds 130 Bolt EVs to its Self-Driving Test Fleet by Stephen Elmer June 15, 2017June 15, 2017 Share Comments Chevy has prepared an entire fleet of self-driving Bolt EVs, showing that mass production is possible with this type of sophisticated technology. Chevy has built 130 Bolt EVs outfit with a full suite of self-driving hardware and software, showing that it can include this type of technology in its mass-production process. These new vehicles will join the already operating test fleets in San Francisco, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Detroit. “This production milestone brings us one step closer to making our vision of personal mobility a reality,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra. “Expansion of our real-world test fleet will help ensure that our self-driving vehicles meet the same strict standards for safety and quality that we build into all of our vehicles.” To make self-driving possible, each Bolt is fit with LIDAR, cameras, and sensors that can read the world around them. Back in January, Chevy claims it became the first automaker to use an assembly line process to build self-driving vehicles. “To achieve what we want from self-driving cars, we must deploy them at scale,” said Cruise Automation CEO Kyle Vogt.
