Future of Self-Driving Cars With The Autonomous Chevy Bolt

self-driving chevy bolt

General Motors (GM)  has some big news and we are super excited. GM is the first U.S manufacturer with a facility to mass produce self-driving cars and their first batch of mass produced cars was 130 Chevy Bolt EVs. The Chevy Bolt is already the longest range electric vehicle and now it is making even more strides.

This is what we know:

  • In 2016, GM invested a whopping $500 million in the ridesharing company, Lyft, and this is around the same time GM started talking about their interest in self-driving vehicles. Lyft is planning on having a self-driving driver service by 2021.
  • By 2018, GM plans to have “thousands” of self-driving vehicles roaming the road. Currently there are 50 Chevy Bolt EVs driving in three U.S. cities.

OnStar Service Plans for Your Chevy – Which is for You?

OnStar Chevy

Since the 2011 model year, almost all Chevy vehicles have a basic OnStar plan and today there are several different types of OnStar features and add-ons that Chevy owners and drivers can purchase to improve many aspects related to the driving experience. Here’s a closer look at all of the available OnStar plans and features. If you want to add any OnStar functions or plans on to your Chevy, come by Miami Lakes Chevy and we’ll assist you in getting set up.

OnStar Basic Plan

Though the standard OnStar Basic Plan is free for the first five years of ownership, it is a pretty comprehensive plan. The basic plan includes “smart driver,” which is a feature that helps coach drivers into being better drivers (which can help lower car insurance premiums) and it includes a few features that informs drivers of the vehicle’s “health” as well as when it is in need of repair or routine maintenance. Owners can also use the OnStar basic plan to sync their vehicle up with a smartphone app, which makes it possible for users to remotely lock and unlock their vehicle. The basic plan also comes with OnStar AtYourService, which users can use to find the locations of restaurants, entertainment and shopping.
