GM, rideshare Lyft to launch first self-driving cars in Austin

The report comes on the heels of GM announcing a $500 million investment in Lyft as part of an effort to launch a national network of self-driving automobiles. At last week’s Consumer Electronic Show, GM reps said its latest version of Chevy’s new Bolt electric car has been designed with ride-sharing in mind. The new Bolt will sell for $30,000, but General Motors President Dan Ammann told Mashable that their self-driving car would be available for ride-sharing before being sold to customers.
