These investments will allow Cruise Automation to expand development of self-driving technologies that will transform personal mobility.

Cruise Automation and GM engineers are currently testing more than 50 Chevrolet Bolt EVs with self-driving technology on public roads in San Francisco; Scottsdale, Arizona; and metro Detroit.

The new investment will include repurposing an existing facility in San Francisco that will more than double Cruise Automation’s research and development space.

The Cruise Automation team plans to move into the new space by the end of the year and hire more than 1,100 new employees over the course of the next five years. â–
