General Motors Takes Another Step Toward Mass-Produced Self-Driving Cars

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The future is getting closer: General Motors said that it's investing $100 million to upgrade two of its Michigan factories to begin mass producing self-driving cars. GM has previously said that it will begin deploying its first self-driving vehicle at scale in 2019 as an automated taxi in dense urban environments. The vehicle in question, called the Cruise AV, is an extensively reworked version of GM's well-regarded battery-electric Chevrolet Bolt EV.

My Year of Living Electrically (Chevy Bolt Review)

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - My driving case isn’t typical. I work at home and don’t otherwise place heavy demands on a car, so the 6,400 miles I’ve put on the odometer during the past year is less than many drive their cars in just a few months.

(This is a modified Chevrolet Bolt EV, no relation to the Chevrolet Cruze.)

Chevy Bolt EV achieves new delivery record and ends first full year of production at over 23,000 units in the US

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Before launching its new electric car, GM said that they were aiming for about 30,000 vehicles per year. After delivering 3,227 units last month, the Chevy Bolt EV ended its first full year of production with 23,297 units. On an annual basis, it’s not there yet, but the automaker has beaten sales records every month for the past 9 months now with its first built from the ground up all-electric vehicle. If they can sustain that, Bolt sales are very promising for 2018. Here’s the ramp up over the last 13 months.
