Has anyone seen a 2020 Bolt?

I have been waiting for the build capability on the Costco website to come up. Today it is there. I didn't see any new options except for paint color.

Here is what's know for now:
In addition to the 21 mile increase in range additional updates include two new exterior colors: Cayenne Orange Metallic (additional cost option) and Oasis Blue. The former Surround Vision Camera and Rear Vision Camera have being upgraded to HD Surround Vision Camera and HD Rear Vision Camera. On available safety features, Automatic Emergency Braking is replacing Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking.

What's the difference with AEB and Low Speed Forward Auto Braking? Seems the old Bolt passed the IIHS 25mph auto stop test with flying colors.

Forward Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB): Brakes are automatically applied to prevent a collision or reduce impact force while the car is traveling forward.
Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking. This feature detects an imminent front-end collision at low speed and automatically engages the brakes if the driver has not already done so.

Hm...


Forward Collision Alert - Alerts you to impending collision so you can brake yourself. This warning comes just before Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking.
Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking - Automatically brakes the car to a stop to avoid rear-ending a car ahead of you.
Front Pedestrian Braking - Identifies and brakes for pedestrians that are in front of your car (in case you don't notice them).


So since the Low Speed FAB can stop for the 12 and 25 mph test, it's not limited to just Low Speed.
Unless the Bolt now actually brakes when you are backing up, I think in short it is just that LSFAB is too long and confusing so the marketing department (which probably cmae up with LSFAB) now want to just call it AEB so people know what it is.

I have it turned on and never got it to work. I almost bumped into a few cars in traffic. How do I test it?

it's not the same as a Subaru that will come to a complete stop to avoid a collision.. I believe it applies engine braking to mitigate collision damage, not prevent it.

I had the alert go red/beep so I know at least that works. I stopped on my own so don't know of LSFAB would have stopped the car if I had not.
