Andrew Farah not parking the car. He was in control of the brake and the gear shift under instruction from the car. It turned the wheel and told him when to stop and shift. The space was only 4 1/2 feet longer than the car. So short in fact that he had to back and fill to pull OUT of the space.

Chevrolet Volt owner G. Michael Murphy was invited to attend the recent 2016 Volt ride & drive event in California.

While at the event, Murphy captured this video of the 2016 Volt parallel parking itself.

We believe this is the first time we've seen a Volt park itself.

The demo, though relatively slow, proves the technology works.

All that Andrew Farah, "driver" of the Volt in the video and 2016 Chevrolet Volt Chief Engineer, has to do is shift and be in control of the brake pedal.  He does not touch the steering wheel during the parking procedure.

By this time next year, General Motors will have fully autonomous Volts driving around its Warren Tech Center.
