Chevy Bolt with No Steering Wheel or Pedals About to Roll

| January 12, 2018

Chevy Bolt

GM is taking autonomous driving seriously, with company president Dan Ammann saying that a fully autonomous Chevy Bolt, with no steering wheel or pedals, will be ready next year.

What about a human standing by to take over the controls? Get this, GM reports that it will no longer need an engineer in the front seat watching the robot hat controls its self-driving Chevrolet Bolt. Gone will be steering wheel and pedals, giving total control to the vehicle.

The plan is for GM to test its autonomous electric sedan in San Francisco ride-sharing fleets. The result? Probably the first production-ready car on the roads without the familiar controls for a human to take over.

“What’s really special about this is if you look back 20 years from now, it’s the first car without a steering wheel and pedals,” said Kyle Vogt, chief executive officer of Cruise Automation, the San Francisco-based unit developing the software for GM’s self-driving cars.
