45 years after first Lunar Rover Trip, EV engineers continue to innovate
DETROIT, July 20, 2017 /3BL Media/ - In July 1971, Apollo 15 astronauts explored the moon in the first electric-powered Lunar Rover, thanks to help from General Motors engineers. Fast-forward to the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, and it’s clear once again that GM remains at the forefront of EV engineering. With an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles on a single charge and costing a fraction of the Lunar Rover’s $38 million price tag, the Bolt EV has made driving electric attainable for the Earth-bound.
GM is using mass-production methods to manufacture 130 fully electric Chevrolet Bolt EV test vehicles equipped with self-driving technology at an assembly plant in Michigan. These vehicles will join the 50 already deployed in San Francisco, Scottsdale and metro Detroit. GM is testing these self-driving cars and collecting real-world data, ensuring they meet the company’s strict safety and quality standards.
