Autonomous lift in a Bolt: GM and Lyft aim to have a fleet of self-driving cabs ready by January 2019. The Chevy Bolt is the most likely vehicle for the undertaking that could see 725 EVs hit the roads. Already, the companies are testing prototypes in San Francisco and Scottsdale (we reported).
The first 3,000 electric trikes of planned 100,000 units will arrive on the Philippines this September. Delivery is to be completed by the end of the year. The ministry of energy issued a tender for the next 6,000 electric three-wheelers. Back then, Bemac Electric reportedly won the first bid.
