Cruise's Chevy Bolt electric vehicles are manufactured at the Orion township assembly plant in Michigan with “ control algorithms and artificial intelligence created by Cruise.” Images of Cruise's vehicles evidence that Cruise uses Lidar, radar, and cameras on its vehicles. As of September 2016, Cruise was conducting testing with a fleet of approximately 30 driverless vehicles. By June 2017, after GM announced the mass production of 130 new Chevy Bolts used for testing, the total number of driverless vehicles owned by GM was estimated to be 180. As of July 2017, Cruise was conducting testing on public roads in San Francisco, Scottsdale, Arizona, and the metropolitan Detroit area. In early 2017, Cruise released a series of videos showing its driverless vehicles navigating the streets of San Francisco. In an interview with Fortune in July 2017, Vogt described the videos as “...the most technically advanced demonstrations of self-driving cars that have ever been put out there in public.” Also in July 2017, Cruise announced “Cruise Anywhere,” a program for San Francisco-based employees to use driverless cars as a rideshare service. The company's CEO Kyle Vogt has stated that commercial deployment will occur via a ride-sharing service platform, but what platform remains unknown. Vogt recently noted that partnerships across the industry are messy. With commercialization, Cruise's fleet is expected to grow into the thousands in the coming years. GM has invested another $500 million in a minority ownership share of Lyft.
