General Motors (GM) has announced that it will be reducing spending at its self-driving car unit, Cruise. GM's CEO, Mary Barra, stated that when operations resume, Cruise's expansion will be more cautious, resulting in substantially lower spending in 2024 compared to 2023. This decision aligns with GM's previous plan to scale back Cruise's operations once testing and ride-hailing services restart. Currently, Cruise has suspended its operations in the United States, where it operates driverless vehicles in multiple cities, primarily in southern states. The suspension was a result of Cruise withholding information and video footage related to an incident where a pedestrian was struck by a Cruise vehicle. Cruise denies any wrongdoing but has paused its public operations throughout the country and experienced the resignation of its CEO, Kyle Vogt. GM has also halted production of its driverless vehicle, the Origin van, and plans to resume operations in only one city, although the specific city and timeline have not been announced. Despite these changes, GM remains committed to autonomous vehicles and continues to support Cruise in its efforts to prioritize trust, accountability, and transparency.
