Autonomous Chevy Bolt currently being tested in San Francisco

It would appear that Cruise Automation, one of General Motors’ newer acquisitions, has been testing a self-driving Chevy Bolt in San Francisco. And while it isn’t clear how long the autonomous tech company has been testing the Bolt, the operative words above are “has been testing” – GM said in March that it would be buying Cruise Automation, so there’s a chance the start-up had been quietly performing tests with nary a soul noticing, with no fanfare whatsoever involved in these presumably secret tests.

Still, Cruise is definitely testing self-driving Bolts, and said as much on its website, showing off the above picture of a Bolt decked out with a variety of sensors and other autonomous driving features. Chevrolet has yet to provide detailed comment on the ongoing tests, but the way we see it, it seems to be a case of so far, so good.

This all may have some tie-ins with GM’s other business plans behind the scenes. Earlier this year, GM announced that it had invested $500 million in ride-hailing service Lyft. And the automaker has also been quoted as saying it may be offering an autonomous cab service that bakes in technologies from both Lyft and Cruise. That means the Bolt may be used as the vehicle for this cab service, though it could be some time before we see the service launched – the Chevy Bolt may only be hitting the production floor by late 2016.
