GM’s Cruise Automation Expands CA Footprint

General Motors plans to add more than 1,100 new jobs and invest $14 million in a new research and development facility for Cruise Automation in San Francisco. The state provided an $8-million tax credit to GM Cruise to bring a development center to the City.

An existing facility in San Francisco will be repurposed to more than double Cruise Automation’s current R&D space for building self-driving technologies that promise to transform personal mobility. 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.

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, AZ and metro Detroit.
