Auto History Museum Displays One Of General Motors’ First Self-Driving Test Vehicles

The camera- and sensor-equipped vehicle is the first autonomous car to be added to The Henry Ford collection. It'll be next to a 1959 Cadillac El Dorado at the "Driving America" exhibit, which chronicles the history of the automobile.

One of General Motors’ first self-driving test vehicles is going on display at an automotive history museum in suburban Detroit.

The Henry Ford history attraction announced Tuesday that it has acquired a modified pre-production Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle.

The GM-donated vehicle originally made its debut testing on the streets of San Francisco in 2016. Now it will be displayed at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn.
