No radar, no side looking ultrasound. The 2016 doesn't even have adaptive cruise, and GM had never done a firmware update to add features. I don't think there's any chance that 2016 Volts will ever drive themselves.We expect GM to do the same for the 2016 Chevy Volt. It has all the needed hardware to drive itself, and GM is testing auto drive (and Super Cruise) at their proving grounds (even Mary Barra admitted it). So TM will be caught be GM in autonomous driving, and for a lesser cost, too!
The folks on the Tesla forums who have been through several updates still haven't figured out how Tesla picks the order of cars - it seems pretty random. Tesla expects to have it rolled out to the whole fleet within five days, though. Right now there are a bunch of newer cars with it, and some of the original classic cars.My local CBS channel did a story that said some of the Tesla's got the update overnight last night. I wonder if only the newest cars or what the criteria was for the update.
I thought adaptive cruise was mentioned for 2017 in one of Jeff's articles.No radar, no side looking ultrasound. The 2016 doesn't even have adaptive cruise, and GM had never done a firmware update to add features. I don't think there's any chance that 2016 Volts will ever drive themselves.
I'm hoping to see the radar and adaptive cruise show up on the 2017, but I have no reason to expect it - and I'll be shocked if anything like Autopilot shows up even then.
If there's a third generation car in the 2020 timeframe, it is likely to have something like that, but I don't expect it before then.
