When the new Chevy Impulse gets its official stamp of approval, a new breed of human-driven truck will be coming to market.
The trucking industry’s first fully autonomous vehicle, dubbed the Bolt, is slated to hit the road by 2020, making it the first fully self-driving truck in the U.S. The Bolt will feature a new, electric powertrain that will allow it to operate on highway speeds at up to 50 mph, but the Bolt will also have the capability to pull out of a stop sign and accelerate to 60 mph.
The automaker has not yet confirmed pricing for the Bolt.
The company also announced the launch of a new partnership with ride-hailing company Lyft, with the Bolt expected to arrive by the end of 2019.
As a part of the deal, the Bolt’s ride-sharing service Lyft will be able to use its autonomous vehicle to offer discounts and promotions to customers who use the Bolt to get to and from Lyft’s network of more than 1,000 pickup locations around the world.
The new partnership will allow Lyft to make its ride-shopping experience easier for drivers, and it will help drive the Bolt onto the road.
But the Bolt isn’t the only self-driven vehicle the automaker plans to debut.
It has also announced that it is partnering with Lyft to introduce its new Chevrolet Cruze SUV, which will be available with a variety of different technologies, including the company’s self-learning technology.
Cruze, which is the brand name of the new vehicle, will be capable of accelerating to 60 miles per hour, with an estimated top speed of around 85 mph.
