Self Driving Chevrolet Bolts Testing in Arizona by Jason Siu August 9, 2016 Share Comments If you live near Scottsdale, Arizona, you might see a self-driving Chevrolet Bolt prototype on roadways. Cruise Automation, which was recently acquired by General Motors, has announced on Twitter that it is testing autonomous technology on Chevrolet Bolt EVs on roads in Scottsdale, Ariz., in addition to San Francisco, Calif. Prior to GM acquiring Cruise Automation, the startup had been working on a roof-mounted, retrofit kit that is capable of bringing self-driving capabilities to numerous Audi models.

The greater Phoenix, Arizona area has become one of the more popular hubs for testing and developing self-driving cars. Google has been testing its self-driving car in the area, thanks to the low cost of operating in the state and the state government’s support for testing autonomous technologies on public roads.
