Why doesn't GM offer active cruise control on the Bolt? I see no way to configure it on Chevy's site.

Only GM knows the answer. Some (not official GM spokespersons) have stated that ACC is coming to the Bolt sometime in 2019. Others have stated that the Bolt was designed primarily for ride share and autonomous driving so development is focused on self-driving technology.

ACC on my Volt is just such an awesome feature and I don't think I am the only one that feels this way. I really like the Bolt.....but would never consider buying one unless it included ACC. In fact, I cannot see buying ANY new vehicle without that feature.

Yeah, GM ????

Or better yet offer SuperCruise!

You have autonomous Bolts driving around. Get with it and offer up some of this sort of tech to eager customers !!

Or are you saving it for all the new Chevy BEV's that are coming out any day now?

Timing?
Complexity?
Cost?
Different braking system?
Something held back for another model year upgrade?
Something else?

No one knows except GM.

My operating hypothesis is this one: Chevy doesn't have a well-tested way to engage the physical brakes of the slightly weird dual system the Bolt has, and while 99.999% of the time, it would never even have to deal with those physical subsystems, it's still not ready. (Does anyone know if the friction brakes on a Bolt even have an automatable booster system, or is it just the ABS pump and muscle power?)
