The Chevy Bolt EUV Bring On The Automated Lane Change
The distinction that the Bolt EUV (otherwise known as Chevy’s electric SUV) makes in its particular model is that it will not encompass the Automated Lane Change technology that has been recently presented to General Motors three Cadillac models: the 2021 luxury Cadillac CT4 and 2021 Cadillac CT5 sedans and the latest 2021 Cadillac Escalade full-size luxury SUV.
The Automated Lane Change enables the vehicle to automatically change lanes, thus signaling an progression of the standard Super Cruise system. Vehicles that offer this system have a fairly simple task, with the driver just having to either tap or fully latch the turn signal level in order to start the process. Doing this allows the system to look for a convenient opening in the indicated lane, and once it’s safe to do so, move in that particular spot. In the same way with all Super Cruise functions, this is only workable on compatible highways, of which potential buyers will be happy to know that there are around about 200,000 miles in North America and Canada, as well as 180,000 miles in China.
At the digitized reveal for the vehicle, the Super Cruise Assistant Program Engineering Manager, Jeff Dinakar, explained why Automated Lane Change would not be accessible on the Bolt EUV, saying “This requires VIP.”
To explain, VIP expresses itself as a Vehicle Intelligent Platform, which is also known as the GM Global B electronic architecture. Think of it as the electronic nervous system of the vehicle, progressively, Global B has been replacing the previous Global A in General Motors cars, with some dating back all the way to the 1990s, and then some.
While it’s certain that the brand new Bolt EUV is set to go on sale this summer, technologically and mechanically, it is comparable to Chevrolet’s other fully-electric and smaller crossover, the Bolt EV, which is in the midst its own facelift for the 2022 model year (though will not have Super Cruise available). The electric architecture is essentially Global A, but with a slight update that develops it in Global B’s direction without really turning it into a “proper” Global B vehicle. As a result, the electric system would not be a suitable partner for the Bolt EUV to be matched with Automated Lane Change.
It is for this reason that the Bolt EUV’s Super Cruise system will be comparable to the one that we first saw in the 2018 Cadillac CT6. This tells the driver that it is safe to take their hands off in particular instances. As stated by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Automated Vehicles for Safety document, though the Super Cruise system is a driver assistance system, that doesn’t make it fully autonomous.
In fact, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) describes it as a Level 2 system, going as far to describe it as such: “Vehicle has combined automated functions, like acceleration and steering, but the driver must remain engaged with the driving task and monitor the environment at all times.”
