Interesting discussion about Maven and the Bolt EV

Autoline had an interesting program this week about Maven, and a good bit of it revolved around the Bolt EV. It turns out that the Bolt EV is the most popular vehicle in the Maven Gig fleet, likely because it's the least expensive to run, and that Maven is using its data and Bolt EV fleet to work together with charging infrastructure partners. Maven would like more Bolt EVs and has been promised 2000 more for the next year. Definitely worth a look:

One thing which I found interesting and didn't know about is that GM can authorize your phone to work like a fob. Hence no "pain point" of needing to transfer fobs.

I posted this in another thread about self-driving Bolts, it's a really good podcast on LOTS of GM Bolt AV stuff, and the implications for ride sharing, how Bolt AV fit in with GM truck sales (and a whole lot more):
I think GM is a sleeper in the race to autonomy, just like it was in putting out a 235 mile $35k pure EV in 2016. GM seems to have a grand plan in mind that aims to remake the company into a broad transportation provider, not just a car manufacturer. It's a bit breathtaking in scope and no less ambitious than some of Musk schemes. It's simply not tweet boasting about it. Yet. I'm sure others are starting to scramble at this point, now that they realize the rules of the game are about to change dramatically.
